By Billy Rainford It feels like it’s been a really long time since I’ve sat down to write a Monday Morning Coffee the day after actually being at some racing. In fact, it’s been since the Daytona Supercross that I’ve done it! That race was way back on March 7th. Yesterday, I was at Round 2 of the AMO Ontario Provincial Championships (OPC) at Walton Raceway and it felt great.

By Billy Rainford Happy belated Father’s Day to all the Moto Dads out there! I hope you all got to spend it at the track with your kids, just like you probably did with your dads on Father’s Days of the past. I remember my mom and dad always got a hug and a card from me as I sat in the back seat of the vehicle on the way
By Billy Rainford Someone told me it’s Monday today, so I’m inclined to believe them. We’ve had our heads down packing up and entire houseful of memories and dusty skeletons for the past few days here at my folks’ house on Lake Simcoe, so I really haven’t looked at any sort of calendar lately. Because we were elbows up and staring at the front fender of all things Rainford Archives
By Billy Rainford As we head into another Monday, we do so after what was an amazing 450 Supercross Main at Round 13 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series. If you didn’t get to watch this one live, wait until you find the entire show before you watch any highlights. It was one for the ages! Eli Tomac appears to have exorcized his demons of Supercross seasons past and
By Billy Rainford How’s everyone feeling after getting back to some Supercross racing?! I hope you have the Supercross Video Pass because I heard there may have been a problem watching the racing on NBC Sports. Something about a new episode of Heidi or something? (If you got that reference you’re either old or a history/trivia buff) However, I saw that they replayed the racing later in the evening, so
By Billy Rainford There’s nothing like waking up on a Monday Morning, clicking on your Instagram feed and seeing a ton of new photos and videos of riders ripping up practice tracks across the country. It feels great to be back in action. I can’t believe we also just went from one of the worst springs ever here in my neck of the woods in Southwestern Ontario immediately to mid-summer-like
By Billy Rainford After a few weeks of website trouble, we’re back in action and firing on all cylinders. Unfortunately, our sport isn’t. Although we’re slowly seeing more and more day-to-day activities getting back to normal, we aren’t there yet. I had to actually ask Emily if this was the “May Two-Four” weekend! When’s the last time you forgot the first long weekend of the summer season?! I don’t think
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 Shot Race Gear By Billy Rainford Well, I’m getting closer and closer to home. Assuming nobody tells me of some sort of race between Chicago and London today, I’ll be home for dinner! I’m typing this week’s ‘Monday Morning Coffee‘ from a coffee shop in that little part of Indiana the highway hits when you get close to Chicago. Actually, there are some really
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
