Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford 26, 27, 28 and ☀️. That’s the extended forecast for Daytona next Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The biannual trip down the I-75 looms on my travel calendar. The odometer on the #DMXVan just rolled over 300,000 kilometres, but a fresh oil change tomorrow morning and she’ll be ready for another sortie. I had to miss this past weekend’s Supercross in Arlington, Texas, but if I were to

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Well, I finally made it back to London. It’s hard to believe that the trip that started over a month ago has ended up right back in my little home office where it started. I’m looking out the window at a snow-covered backyard instead of looking out to see which Pro rider was showing up to ride at Viney Ranch in Murrieta, California. But as some girl

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford It hurts me to say this but this will be my final Monday Morning Coffee from Viney Ranch in Murrieta, California. What an amazing stay this has been. I’d like to thank Ulf and Cheryl Viney for their hospitality. Letting me call their single-axle trailer home for the past couple weeks has been fantastic. Being able to make daily sortees to the practice tracks has been so

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Had to wait until I could get to my fingernails before hitting the laptop this morning. Anyone else completely in awe of anyone who has those crazy long fingernails and can still type? Mine get like 1 millimetre long and it’s time for me to cut them down. I feel like I’m going to poke them right through the keyboard otherwise. But I digress… You think that

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello again from the little single-axle trailer parked at Viney Ranch in Murrieta, California. It’s really amazing what Ulf and Cheryl have carved out for themselves right at the centre of USA Motocross. There’s always something going on here. We had a delicious BBQ last night that Cheryl cooked up with Michael Lindsay from Vital MX. I think I learned more about the inner workings of American

By Billy Rainford Photos by 🌊 This Monday Morning Coffee is coming to you from the Pacific Time in Ocean Beach, California. “OB” is a beach town next to San Diego and we love it here. If you’ve ever been to the coast of Southern California, you know what it’s like. Most places are completely white-washed and without flavour. It’s little pockets of beach life like OB and Venice Beach

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I’m sitting here in -8C drinking my first cup of Monday Morning Coffee of 2022. It’s a pretty big Monday because it means I’m supposed to be loading up the DMX Van for another trip south and west for some Monster Energy AMA Supercross! And I will be, but it’s been a really strange lead up to this departure. It seems I managed to pick up a

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to the last Monday Morning Coffee before Christmas. Emily and I made our last trip down to my buddy’s restaurant before Christmas, so I’m a little behind on my coffee ramblings this morning. I think, since we’ve got the LRX Alberta Arenacross Championships to talk about in more detail later, I’ll spin a little yarn this week, if you don’t mind. I’m going to tell this

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello from a sunny and 7C day in London. Emily and I were actually able to get out for a nice cycle yesterday and it looks like we’ll take advantage and head out again today. When I looked ahead at the forecast, my plan was to put the snow tires on Em’s car on one of these nicer December days, but it seems we’re too busy getting

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee to start the week. Now that the Mini O’s are done, we find ourselves heading straight for the Christmas/Holiday break before we hit the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season in full stride. It looks like we’re going to have a few Canadians either competing in the entire series or doing a few races in 2022. Let’s have a look
