Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend and managed to get out to a track or a trail somewhere. How are you drinking your cup this morning? Regular? Black? Well, I thought I’d check out some stats on that, and here’s what I found out: From: www.statisticbrain.com I’m one of the 65%, how about you? Anyway, now that the stats are
Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Hola, and welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee. This week, we’re coming to you from a quiet little fishing village about 40 kms outside Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, called Sayulita. Well, the last time I was here it could have been described as that, but that was 13 years ago. Today, Sayulita has become a very popular destination for…everyone! This place is so different
Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Wow, what day is it? Who thought driving to Boston and back from London, Ontario, was a good idea?! Oh ya, it was me. When they announced that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series was heading back to Gillette Stadium this year, I knew I wanted to be there. When the date approached, I started to realize this was going to be a quick
Monday Morning Coffee|Presented by PR-MX By Billy Rainford Some Monday Mornings, I sit here at my computer and I’m not really sure where to start. Well, this strange feeling in my right arm tells me exactly where to begin. Here’s the thing, although I’m buried below my eyeballs in this sport these days, rarely does it give me the chance to actually ride. As anyone will tell you, a job
Monday Morning Coffee|Presented by PR-MX.ca By Billy Rainford Hey, how’s the weather where you are? I have to say, we had a really gentle winter in my neck of the woods this year. London, Ontario, sits in what has always been called ‘The Snow Belt’ and this year we must have been wearing suspenders because we didn’t really get many snowfalls. Of course, having said that, we got a spring
Monday Morning Coffee Presented by PR-MX | KTM Canada Road Trip Edition By Billy Rainford Hello from sunny and hot Southern California! Like I ask myself every time I’m in BC, why doesn’t everyone live out here?! Seriously, I wonder what people are doing living through winters in Wisconsin when people are out here cycling, surfing and riding dirt bikes all year long. You want snow? Head to the mountains.
Monday Morning Coffee|Presented by PR-MX.ca By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning, everyone. I hope you all had a great long weekend. We actually had some warm weather to enjoy in our neck of the woods – Southwestern Ontario – and lots of people got out to local tracks to get in some very early-season seat time. My plan was to head over to Gopher Dunes and shoot some video and
Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by PR.MX.ca By Billy Rainford Well, there’s another weekend in the books. Did you know that if you count from the age 20 until 80, that gives you 3120 weekends to enjoy. Actually, I was hoping that number would be frighteningly low and scare us into living every moment to its fullest, but that sounds like a lot of weekends. So, go ahead and sleep
Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Wow, where to start after a weekend like that?! I guess I’ll just back it up a little because the past couple weeks have just sort of blended into one continuous moto memory. I was down south for the Atlanta Supercross and haven’t stopped since. The week after Atlanta was the Daytona SX and then the drive north started. Along the way, I wanted
