Monday Morning Coffee | Renegade Fuel

By Billy Rainford I hope everyone had a great weekend. We’re in the middle of our off season, but that doesn’t mean there ins’t anything going on. Quite the opposite, in fact. The big new this past week was Team Canada at the FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Portugal. I’ll admit that although I realize this race is a massive test of rider and machine, I don’t usually

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by Renegade Fuel

By Billy Rainford If you live anywhere near me in Southwestern Ontario you’ve woken up to a very typical situation: It rained all weekend and now the weather is perfect…but it’s Monday. How many times has this happened to you in your life? I know, for me, it seems like a lot! You’d stew all weekend because you really didn’t want to go out and pound out mud motos, or

Monday Morning Coffee | Presented by Renegade Fuel

By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning, everyone. We’re heading off in a Jeff McConkey-less world this week, and I just want to say how appreciative I am for all the condolences at the Hamilton Supercross on Saturday. A lot of people said that they didn’t expect to see me at the races this weekend at all, but there was no way I wasn’t going to be at the final round

Monday Morning Coffee | Renegade Fuel

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to another cup of coffee. This one should see us preparing to leave for Holland and the Motocross of Nations in Assen, but it isn’t. No, we’ll all be here at home digging through our family histories, looking for a reason to cheer for a certain team. Me? Well, my dad is straight from Liverpool, so I guess I’ll have to be rooting for Team Great

McThoughts | Montreal SX | 250 Class

McThoughts | Montreal SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Going into this year’s Montreal Supercross, the 250 class looked great on paper. Quite a few guys that could win, but when the night was over, we were missing 3 potential winners. Josh Osby missed the event due to a wedding, Tyler Medaglia sat out due to a scary qualifying crash, and Jess Pettis suffered a

Monday Morning Coffee | Montreal SX | Renegade

By Billy Rainford Truthfully, I’m starting this week off with a massive cup of tea before heading into the coffee portion of my day. It was the Montreal Supercross weekend and Emily and I met up with an old high school friend of mine who lives in Montreal. He’s an interesting cat who also has property in Tokyo, Japan. Anyway, we met for brunch on our way out of the

This series will be 3 rounds, beginning with the Montreal Supercross this Saturday night. The next 2 rounds will be in Quebec City (October 5th) and finally in Hamilton (October 19th). The Arenacross and Motocross portions are

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Happy Labour Day Monday Morning Coffee. It feels like just yesterday I was welcoming us to the first long weekend of the summer season back in May. Another Canadian Pro Motocross season has come and gone and we find ourselves in a bit of a “shoulder season” between MX and SX. We won’t have very long to wait, though, because the Montreal Supercross will be here before

Report Card | MX Nationals | 450 Class

Report Card | MX Nationals | 450 Class By Billy Rainford It’s time to hand out the report cards for the top 10 of the 450 class in the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown MX Nationals. Here’s a look at how I scored each rider. 1st #1 Colton Facciotti HON (A+) There was a chance we weren’t going to see Colton again after his awful crash in Supercross last season, so
