Monday Morning Coffee

It’s time for our weekly opinion column Monday Morning Coffee where we discuss what happened in Motocross and whatever else. By Billy Rainford I’m happy to announce that I’m typing this MMC from the comfort of my office upstairs on the main floor of the house! We started ripping our thin-slat hardwood floors up on the Easter long weekend and we’re close to being fully moved back in on the

Grab another cup and check out this week’s Monday Morning Coffee column where we talk about Motocross and whatever else Bigwave feels like. (Yes, I 3rd-personed myself for the tag line. Don’t worry about it!) By Billy Rainford Hello from somewhere along the way between Kamloops, BC and London, ON. It’s been a pretty difficult time out west as I looked after my mom for the last 8 days to

Monday Morning Coffee

It’s time for another Monday Morning Coffee column where we talk about some of what happened in the world of Motocross and usually lots more. By Billy Rainford I made it out to Kamloops, BC this weekend for another visit with my mom whose dementia is progressing. I’m working on very little sleep as she is still on patrol in the house for most of the night. I was able

It’s time for another Monday Morning Coffee column where we talk about some of what happened in the sport of motocross and usually a lot more By Billy Rainford It was another weekend where I wasn’t at the races myself. I’ll tell you what, it’s interesting and challenging to let go of the reins completely while someone else is representing Direct Motocross at the races. As we grow, it’ll happen

It’s time to grab another Monday Morning Coffee and chat about some of what happened in our sport of Motocross over the weekend. By Billy Rainford Grab yourself another cup and let’s chat about the weekend. I decided to stay local this weekend and miss the Nashville round of the 2024 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series in order to get my first look at a bunch of Canadian Pro riders

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford A look at some of what happened in the world of Motocross over the weekend with a heavy dose of story-telling thrown in… Driving to Boston, Massachusetts, from London, Ontario, for one day of Monster Energy AMA Supercross racing may seem a little bit crazy to the average person. And you know what? It is. It made more sense when I was going to be there for

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Another Monday, another weekend spent learning how to do things around the house for this pretty major renovation. This time it was popcorn ceiling removal. Yep, we’re hitting all the classic jobs around here. Last week it was removing the hardwood and this week we looked up to the roof and attacked that. I asked last week if you’ve ever done hardwood removal because it was so

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Sorry I’m late… I didn’t get out on the dirt bike this weekend, but I managed to sneak in a couple bicycle rides. This is the first year in a while that I didn’t head out to California for January and into February so let’s just say my cycling “base” is a little less than what’s it’s been. That said, I have to force myself to take

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford It’s Monday morning and when I look at the forecast on my phone it tells me the days where the temperature starts with a “-” are in our rearview mirror! We had to deal with some brutal weather here in southwestern Ontario the past couple weeks, but I think we can see the grass at the end of the semi-permafrost! Yesterday, it actually snuck up above zero

Monday Morning Coffee | 2024 Indy Supercross

By Billy Rainford I need to start this Monday Morning Coffee on a really scary note. As racing began Saturday at the Motoplayground Spring a Ding Ding at Oak Hill MX in Texas, the first race of the day was on the track, 250 B. #305 Alistair Dickert had something happen to him that we all brush of as an impossibility – he was actually struck by lightning while racing.
