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. With the big day falling on a Sunday this year, it means students will be off all week and then some. I’m sure it seemed strange going to school right up to the day before

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning and welcome to your final Monday Morning Coffee before Christmas. By this time next week, we’ll all be hanging with family and trying to come up with a good excuse to walk out the front door and leave for a few hours. No wait, I’m mixing this holiday up with American Thanksgiving. Every comedian seems to joke about how many fights start

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford It really doesn’t get much more Canadian than this: I’m sitting in a Tim Horton’s while one customer after another walks in, stomps the fresh snow off their Sorel boots and orders a “large double double.” Yep, winter has arrived with a vengeance here at DMX World HQ in London, Ontario. We’ve already shovelled 3 times and woke up to that love/hate relationship sound

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welcome to the start of another work or school week. To me, it’s officially the ‘off season’ when 3 things happen: the Mini O’s have come and gone, Gopher Dunes shuts down riding for the season, and the Future West Moto Canadian Arenacross Championships crowns its champion. Check, check, and check. Out west, the stories ‘Barn’ at Chilliwack Heritage Park played host to the

Monday Morning Coffee | The Mini O’s By Billy Rainford Hello, and welcome to a beautiful Monday Morning Coffee from Gainesville, Florida. We just wrapped up a very long week of racing action from the 45th Annual Thor Winter Olympics, but you can call them ‘The Mini O’s.’ As I sat down to start typing this morning, the power suddenly went out at the Starbucks I was sitting at in

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by Blade By Billy Rainford Welcome to another Monday Morning from sunny-but-cold Gainesville, Florida. Yep, I made the drive again down to the 45th Annual Thor Winter Olympics, better known as “The Mini O’s.” I know, sitting at home where there may actually be some snow on the ground, that this sounds romantic and somewhat glamorous, but it’s not all champagne and caviar on these

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Lots of racing took place around the world over the weekend. If you’re a Pro rider with some indoor skills and experience, there are a ton of options throughout the winter, if you make some calls or drop some hints to the right people. But we’ll get to all that… When I was a kid, my buddy had a brother who was 4 years

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning. There were lots of things that happened over the weekend so let’s get to it. We had an unseasonably warm couple days here (and it’s going to be 18 degrees Celsius again today) so I’m sure most people with bikes were out at a track or trail somewhere!

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Well, there goes another Halloween weekend. Yes, tonight is actually the big night for the door-to-door portion of the festivities, but it’s always the Saturday night before the 31st that is ‘grown up Halloween.’ If you’re from the Ontario region of Canada, you may be familiar with a motocross track that everyone seems to list at or near their top of favourites – Auburn.

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning and welcome to another week at whatever your usual ‘grind’ is. Not to brag, but my usual grind took a pretty cool turn this morning. It seems someone in the Canadian Motocross Industry was unable to make a short trip to California today, so I was forced to step up to the plate and will now be hopping on a flight to
