Monday morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Well, there it goes. The biggest weekend for us here at Direct Motocross. You know that fear you have every time you roll your bike up to the line — Will I get through the first corner unscathed? Will I finally clear that double? Can I break into the top 3?

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by the Toronto Supercross By Billy Rainford That was a big weekend in Atlanta…that I had to miss at the last minute. Nope, I’m not happy about it at all, either. The biggest expense in the Moto Media game is travel. When we looked at the schedule for this year’s Supercross season, these two weeks stood out for a couple reasons. Sweet, Atlanta was to

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welcome to the first Monday Morning Coffee in a long time where we’ve actually seen the sun! In fact, as I type this, people are getting ready to ride at Gopher Dunes today. Yes, the snow is gone and the temperature is going to creep over 10 degrees C in these parts. The past couple weeks, the news has been fixated on all the

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Well, if you’re only going to watch one football game all year, that was the one! Remember when the race at the LA Coliseum was called the ‘Superbowl of Motocross?’ Man, that was one you looked forward to every year and tried to find on TV if you could. Check out this Youtube video from a time when the top 3 or 4 riders

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by MX101 By Billy Rainford Well, another round of Monster Energy AMA Supercross has come and gone. We’re only 3 rounds into the 17-round schedule and we’ve already got more than enough to keep us busy talking at the Monster Cooler at school or work. (Can you imagine if anyone else at school or work actually paid attention to motocross?!) After having the same winners

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by MX101 By Billy Rainford I apologize for living in Pacific Standard Time for this Monday Morning Coffee. I tried as hard as I could to get up extra early and start typing, but we stayed up late with a few Canadians we found here in Menifee, California, telling stories and having more than a few laughs. Davin Grose from Motopark joined our wolf pack

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford And we’re off! We’ve made it through the Holiday Season and we’re on the board with the first 0f 17 rounds of Monster Energy AMA Supercross in the books.

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Not a whole lot to say this week, being Boxing Day and all other than I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and is enjoying a Happy Holiday season.
