Monday Morning Coffee | Toys for Big Boys By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to another week as we head straight through this summer. Is it just me, or is it crazy to think we’ve only got 2 rounds of Rockstar Energy MX Nationals to go? Where does the time go?! Well, in the summer months, it usually goes to the dotted lines on the highways across this country. In

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by Freedom Cycle By Billy Rainford Good morning and welcome to another Monday morning cup of coffee. This week, we’re’ sitting in Truro, Nova Scotia, a day after round 7 of the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals at Pleasant Valley. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for racing yesterday. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the temperature and humidity were literally perfect. There

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford If ever there’s a Monday when I need a big cup of coffee, it’s this one. We were at round 6 of the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals at Notre Dame Du Bon Conseil this weekend and decided it was a good idea to spend 12 hours in the hot sun and then hop in the car at 8pm and drive 8 hours home. Yep,

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Annd we’re back! After a weekend off from action in the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals, we were back in action at the famed track in Courtland, Ontario, known as Gopher Dunes. Just saying those two words together is probably enough to give ex-racers nightmares for a week. Known as the ‘Toughest Track in Canada,’ The Dunes is the round in the series that marks

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning and welcome to another Monday. I remember when I used to hate Mondays. I hated them when I was in school and then I hated them when I had “normal” jobs. The only thing I miss about school is the monthly dances, and the only thing I miss about not having a normal job anymore is that feeling as the clock creeps

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning from…where am I now? Let me have a quick look outside. OK, I’m definitely not in the mountains anymore. We’ve been to Regina, so I must be just outside Winnipeg, Manitoba, this morning. I always complain about finding time to do something with all the content on my laptop when I’m on the road. Well, to combat this problem, I decided to

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning from Calgary, Alberta. If you missed this day of racing yesterday, you missed a lot. Things got shaken up at the Rockstar MX Nationals at Wild Rose MX Park! I’ve been coming to this race for quite a few years now, and this is one of the only times we actually remembered that the day starts 1 hour late due to the

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford As I sit here in Prince George this morning looking out the window of our hotel room, I have to ask myself how many times this happens: You wake up for work or school on Monday and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. How can this happen so often?! Remember all those motocross road trips ruined by the weather and then it turns

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford The time for guessing and speculating is done. We have an answer: Christophe Pourcel could win this thing. No, it shouldn’t surprise anyone – he’s the 2006 World Champion and a 2-time East 250 Supercross champion. He’s got, probably, the best credentials we’ve ever seen in Canada to race our series. But let’s start with the MX2 class. #12 Shawn Maffenbeier won Kamloops in

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by Race Tech By Billy Rainford Well, this is it, the last Monday Morning Coffee we’ll have for a couple months that doesn’t follow a round of the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals. It seems like forever, but we’ll finally be back at it this weekend at Whispering Pines in Kamloops, BC. My plan was to actually already be on the road today, but I have
