Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Yes, we say this every year, “I can’t believe this is the final week of the Nationals!” Time flies when you’re having fun, and we only have this one week left for the Rockstar Triple Crown MX Series. But, hold the phone! We have a little something called the Walton TransCan GNC to get to, first. That’s right, the granddaddy of all granddaddies is back this year.

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Someone had to tell me it’s Monday. Now, if I could only figure out where I am! OK, I’ve just been told I’m at home. What a crazy last 10 days this has been. I’m afraid to look at the numbers on the odometer of the #DMXVan, but I’m guessing it’s spun over the 180,000 km mark by now. It seems like I’m changing the oil in

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford It’s Monday so that must mean I’m still in Moncton when I should be somewhere between here and Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. It looks like I may have shut off my alarm earlier this morning, too. Just like when I go surfing, it looks like I’ll be part of the ‘Crack of Noon’ club today for my ETD. What a great weekend of racing out here in the

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee. I feel more rested than I normally do on a Monday morning and I can’t really figure out why. Oh, right, I didn’t have to drive all night to get home from a race. It was a weekend off from racing for me and I don’t know what to do with myself! Normally, I wake up in a bit of a

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello, and welcome to another week. Yep, it’s Monday again and Gopher Dunes has come and gone. Does anyone else feel like the summers just fly by? Time seems to drag along in the off-season and then when we hit the summer series, you blink your eyes and we’re crowning a couple champions and heading for hockey season! OK, Supercross season is more topical here, so we’ll

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford So, after a long couple days in Ottawa, we had the choice of either staying another night in the beautiful neighbourhood of Westboro in the heart of the city or hopping into the DMX Van and pushing it home Sunday night. While the thought of simply driving 20 minutes and calling it a night was tempting, waking up this morning in my own bed and being able

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford It’s my first Monday home in over a month and it feels weird. I’m already ready to hit the road for the next adventure. It doesn’t take long to recharge my racing battery and be chomping at the bit to get going again. We had a break in our action and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship was down in Tennessee at Muddy Valley. There was a

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Well, it’s Monday so this must be Oak Bluffs, MB. Every year, for quite a few now, FXR has invited us to their HQ just outside Winnipeg for a great day of riding after the 4th round of the Canadian Nationals; this year, it was McNabb Valley MX north of Brandon, MB. New this time was a BBQ dinner Sunday night and a chance for everyone to

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good morning from Jasper, Alberta. After a wild weekend in Prince George for round 3 of the Rockstar Triple Crown MX Tour, it’s time to start heading east and get ready for another new track on the circuit. We’re all meandering our way through the Rocky Mountains headed for the small town of Minnedosa, Manitoba, that sits just north of Brandon and a couple hours west of

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good morning from “Beautiful British Columbia.” I realize it is now afternoon in the rest of the country, but this new schedule has made it pretty difficult to get content up as quickly as we would like. I don’t want to miss the Parts Canada Amateur Open regional championships on Sundays, so it means I have to be back at the track without any time to work
