Frid’Eh Update | #3 Shawn Maffenbeier | Presented by Race Tech

By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #3 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update, this week presented by Race Tech. It looks like we’re finally getting some winter here in Southwestern Ontario where DMX World HQ is located. In fact, as I sit here typing, the 84-year-old couple across the crescent is shovelling their driveway and I’m feeling very guilty sitting here at my desk, sipping coffee and watching them through the

Frid’Eh Update #2 Presented by Yamaha Motor Canada By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #2 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update presented by Yamaha Motor Canada. Here in Southwestern Ontario we were riding at our local tracks last Friday, then we got snow, and now it’s 8 degrees Celsius and green again. It’s been a really strange winter so far in these parts. And it’s supposed to be 10 tomorrow! Career

Frid’Eh Update #1 Presented by Race Tech

Frid’Eh Update #1 Presented by Race Tech By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #1 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update presented by Race Tech. With the new scoring and career numbering system we don’t really have a #1 rider in 2020. With that in mind, it gives me free reign to do whatever I want!

Frid’Eh Update #52 Presented by Fox Racing Canada By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to the final week of the 2019 calendar year (sort of). We’re sitting in the pocket between Christmas and New Year’s. This week is traditionally the happiest of the year, however, I’ve had to spend mine at the hospital in the small gold mining town of Kirkland Lake, Ontario. My mom, sadly, is slipping away mentally,

Frid’Eh Update #51 Presented by Race Tech

Frid’Eh Update #51 Presented by Race Tech By Billy Rainford Welcome to the week before Christmas, #51. I hope everyone is ready for the holidays and can find some time to simply relax and be with family and friends. A lot of people find this a stressful time, and I feel sorry for anyone who does. It really shouldn’t be. We’ve got a light dusting of snow here in London,

Frid’Eh Update #49 Presented by Race Tech By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #49 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update this week presented by Husqvarna Motorcycles Canada and the 2020 FC450 Rockstar Edition.

Frid’Eh Update #47 Presented by KTM Canada

Frid’Eh Update #47 Presented by KTM Canada By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #47 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update Presented by KTM Canada. Week 47 means it’s time to hop into the #DMXVan and make the annual trip south on the I-75 to Gatorback Cycle Park for the Thor Mini O’s. I’ll go ahead and say that this is my favourite amateur week of racing on the calendar. I know…bold

We’re definitely deep in the heart of our off season here in Canada, but there is still a lot going on to talk about.
