Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I hope everyone had a great weekend and got to spend some quality time with your mothers. I don’t go to the races with my parents anymore, but I sure remember the days when I did. Some of you reading this now are still traveling your circuit with them while others, like me, have all the great memories to look back on. As a kid, you don’t

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Well, to say I don’t feel any older would be a lie. How can we already be through another Monster Energy AMA Supercross season?! How did 17 rounds go by in the blink of an eye? Is it just me or is time careening out of control into the future? Oh well, at least we had a new 450 champ this year. With the domination of Ryan

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello, and welcome to another Monday Morning. I hope you’re lucky enough to go to bed on a Sunday night and not dread what the next 5 days have in store for you. 40 hours a week doing something you hate is not a great way to spend your life. If you’re in school, there’s nothing you can do about it. Go to your classes, get good

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good Monday morning, everyone. This Coffee is coming to you from the westbound lanes of the I-90 through New York State. We made the last-minute decision to head to Boston for the Foxboro Supercross at Gillette Stadium. First off, stadiums that are situated outside the centre of a city are, in my opinion, the best simply due to the fact that you can park close to the

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Well, we made it. We made it through the first series brought to you by the new Jetwerx/MRC gang and we also made it out of Barrie, Ontario, alive! Man, that was a rough weekend 45 minutes north of Toronto. To everyone who made the effort to hop in their vehicles and drive to the Molson Centre Friday and/or Saturday, congratulations. In case you hadn’t heard, Barrie

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello, and welcome to another week starting out with a little Morning Coffee. Well, I think we finally got what we’ve been looking for with the new Rockstar Triple Crown Arenacross Tour — a real motocross happening. So far this season, the racing has been good but the amount of spectators in the buildings to witness it has left a lot to be desired. As we all

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Happy Easter Weekend, everyone. I hope you all had a chance to see family and get your fill of turkey for the 2nd time in 4 months. How did turkey get relegated to 3 meals per year, anyway? I eat it at Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving, and that’s it. I can’t think of any other meal that has a specific purpose like turkey does. Anyway, when you’re

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford You guys are in luck! Although I’m still loopy from this pretty harsh cold I managed to catch in the Jetwerx office in Calgary last week, I really feel like typing some long-winded stories this morning. No, that’s not the lucky part on your end. Fortunately for you, I was up all night coughing and now I don’t have enough time to blather on incessantly before the

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Another great weekend of racing is in the books. Heading into Calgary for rounds 2 and 3 of the Rockstar Triple Crown Arenacross Tour, there were a few stories to keep an eye on. Carson Brown got the opportunity to race for the TiLube Honda team in the western swing of the Amsoil Arenacross series. Kourtney Lloyd and Cycle North gave Carson the opportunity to race up
