Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford

Monday Morning with Bigwave

Yep, it’s the first Monday of a new year. 2016 was another banner year for us here at DMX. As readership goes up, so too does the responsibility and pressure of having something worthwhile to say! We will do our best to continue to bring you unbiased reporting on anything and everything to do with Canadian dirt bike riding and its racers. We will continue to try to keep personal opinion and the nonsense that comes with that out of our content. It is our firm belief that delivering the news and not trying to become the news is the only way to keep credibility and forge some sort of longevity in this great sport. I guess that was stating my opinion right there, wasn’t it? Anywho…

Direct Motocross reached over 4 times the amount of people we did when we started in 2010. 4 X 3 = 12… double digits, pretty good!

The #DMXVAN now has 90K on it and will continue to take a beating in 2017. These are strictly highway miles, so if anyone is looking for a ‘like new’ van in a couple years, keep her in mind! Having said that, her maiden voyage in 2017 is going to be a lengthy one. We are about to weigh anchor, hoist the mizzen, and shove off to San Diego, A2, and then the X Games in Aspen to see us some Snow Bike Racing.

So far, the only damage to the van has been the mis-alignment that started my trip west in 2015, the hit deer that Josh Snider managed to accomplish in his 30-minute driving shift from Red Bud, and a spilt beer by Emily on the van’s first drive to Baja Acres… and some dog hair. It’s ready to head southwest again!

Happy New Year, everyone!
