Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I’m feeling like a bit of a zombie this morning after getting a late start on the drive home from Sand Del Lee near Ottawa last night. It’s a 7-hour drive to London and I had to sit in front of the shop there at the track to use some wifi to post a few things before hitting the road. I’m a Rogers cell user and it

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to the Monday Morning Coffee the day after some of the most amazing racing we’ve ever seen here in Canada. No joke, that was a crazy day of motos at Gopher Dunes. Both classes gave us performances and racing action we’ll be referring to for years to come. Jetwerx decided not to groom the track or prep it the way they normally would for a Canadian

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to the week before the Canadian Triple Crown Series starts. Yes, we’ve finally made it to the week we’ve all been waiting for. When I’m, hopefully, sitting at my desk again next Monday I’ll be writing about what we learned at the first couple rounds of the MX Nationals at Walton Raceway. Yes, I’m still lying on my back on the floor typing with

By Billy Rainford Another Monday rears its ugly head. That was a weekend that actually felt like things were back to normal! I managed to get out to a race and almost made it 2 races in 2 days, but I didn’t. My plan was to hit the Mini Bike Triple Crown at Shady Oaks MX in Brigden, Ontario, and then hop back in the van and head to Sand

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I know I don’t have to tell you how great it felt to be back at the races, but it sort of falls into my job description, so I’m going to anyway. DMX World HQ is in London, Ontario. We’re in the fortunate position that this is where we are going to see the bulk of our 2021 Canadian Triple Crown Series again this summer. Having said

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford This week’s instalment of Monday Morning Coffee is going to be short and sweet. I’m trying absolutely everything I can think of to get in a comfortable position to be able to be at my laptop this weekend. So far, I haven’t been successful. I’m currently sitting in a chair in the living room with a rolled up towel behind my lower back. It seems to be

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to get the NBC Gold Pass International sorted out on Saturday for Round 1 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships from Fox Raceway in Pala, California. I’ll admit that I had a few moments where I wanted to through everything I owned that was connected to the internet against the wall. It seemed I couldn’t stop

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Happy Victoria Day, everyone. There’s probably never a more appropriate day to crank up some Tragically Hip! So many of my May Long Weekend memories are played back in my mind to songs by The Hip. It felt great to get out to a track yesterday to shoot some photos and video. Gopher Dunes announced they would be opening for practice this weekend, after the Ontario Government

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford So, we got the news last week that Doug Ford saw his shadow and we’ve been ordered back into our houses for at least another two weeks of lockdown here in Ontario. We’ve been told that they’ll re-evaluate the situation on Wednesday, June 2nd. Hopefully, on that day we’ll get some good news regarding outdoor activity. You know, like MOTOCROSS! I was a little surprised when Ford

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Well, it’s Monday and I’ve got the yard work blister on the palm of my right hand to prove that I did my fair share. You know you’re not riding enough when you feel the blister beginning to form just 5 minutes into pulling dandelions. Too much time behind the camera the past bunch of years and not enough time in front of it! Hopefully, I’ll be
