All I can say is that it’s been an interesting

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

Welcome to Week #14 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update brought to you by RP Race Performance. This week off in the 2024 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series could not come at a better time for me. We’ve been talking about doing some renovations at our

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

Frid’Eh Update #13 | Brought to You by RP Race Performance By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to Week #13 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update brought to you by RP Race Performance. Every 13th week of the year, I think about all the riders who’ve chosen to ride the 13 on their bikes despite all the fear around the digit. First on my mind are Ricky Johnson, Sebastien Tortelli, Tyler

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

Frid’Eh Update #12 | Sebastien Racine | Brought to You by RP Race Performance By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #12 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update brought to you by RP Race Performance. We got lulled into a false sense of spring here in Southwestern Ontario a couple weeks ago with summer-like weather. Unfortunately, we got some weird lake effect snow the past couple days and you can just barely

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.

Frid’Eh Update #11 | Davey Fraser | Brought to You by RP Race Performance By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #11 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update brought to you by RP Race Performance. We’ve got so much going on at the house these days that I was unable to get to Indianapolis today for Media Day. I’ll leave when Emily gets home from work at 6 and get there sometime

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford So, I rolled into the house at around 1:00am from another trip down to Florida and another drive in the DMX Van. I keep saying it’s the “last time” I do it in the Dodge Grand Caravan, but I’m just not going to say that anymore. Who knows?! Maybe I drive it until it completely dies and I’m forced to have it towed to a junkyard and
