By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning from Phoenix, Arizona. Well, technically, I’ve made my way to the western suburb of Goodyear, but I’d probably say “Vancouver” if I were typing from Ladner, too. Extended road trips can teach you an awful lot about yourself. If you don’t like yourself, you’re going to find out why! They force you to be frugal and sometimes creative. Sure, it would be fine if

By Billy Rainford Welcome to the first Monday Morning Coffee of 2019! If one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to cut coffee and/or caffeine out of your diet, you’re not welcome here. Kidding, of course, you can stay but you won’t be nearly as fun. Sometimes, when I’m driving across the country and I can’t get a “good” radio station on the dial, I’ll settle on some country music.
Good Monday Morning…the last Monday morning of 2018. It’s almost time to flood the internet with awards columns, videos, and other things that celebrate the last 365 days, including the requisite promises for a better 2019. This MMC is coming to you from Mountain Time in a small Arizona town called Camp Verde, about 98 miles east of Phoenix. This has not been your typical trip across the high desert.
Welcome to a short Christmas Eve Monday Morning Coffee. Hopefully, everyone will get a chance to relax and enjoy the day with family and friends, and the only reason you have to venture out will be to meet for a coffee somewhere, people watch, and visit with family and friends. Ever since I was a baby, we’ve made the trek north on Highway 11, 3 hours straight north of North
By Billy Rainford Sometimes, I wake up on Monday and nothing has really happened over the weekend that I can think of to write about, and that’s when I’m most dangerous! No, but seriously, we are in what is now a pretty short shoulder season here in Canada. Where we used to sit idle from mid-August to early June, we now race 9 months of the year! What a change
By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning. I hope your coffee is hot and your your work week short! If you’re a student, this is one of the best times of year. I always remember the feeling of the final few weeks of classes before the Christmas/Holiday break. Maybe you’re heading south for some riding or just hanging out at home with family and friends. Either way, it’s a fun time
By Billy Rainford Strike 3 on the attempt at finding wifi this morning….no, wait, I’ve been given some information that would have helped me 15 minutes ago! The connection was too slow at the McDonalds I wasted my time in, and ate their breakfast. Then, as I was halfway between Gainesville and Tallahassee, I figured I’d pull into a Denny’s and sit with a coffee and write…Monday Coffee — seemed
By Billy Rainford As tends to happen from time to time, I’m trying to work my way south to the races and am pulled over to grab a coffee and write some Coffee — this won’t be long. As some girl named Brittany so famously said, “Oops, I think I repeated a previous mistake!” I pulled over for a one-hour nap and woke up 4 hours later just south of
By Billy Rainford Welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee. This column is where we post up results from around the world where Canadians are competing and it’s also where I like to spout off on some opinion stuff and spin a yarn or two. Let’s start off as far away from Canada as you can get, geographically: Australian Supercross AUS-X Open – Round 6 Sydney SX1 OVERALL Rider Race 1
By Billy Rainford So, anything interesting happen over the weekend? Wow, the Rockstar Triple Crown Supercross Series was back with a bang! After what seemed like an eternity away from racing up here in Canada, we were all back in action at the new Videotron Centre in Quebec City. As we knew they would, the amateur riders supported this event well and we had full gates in all of the
