Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – November 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross – November 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, Humans. I recall two years ago, when I wrote one of my columns about the values of what it took to achieve my black belt in karate at age 12.  I also remember the photo that went along with the column.  It was of Rudy Waller (my friend, trainer, and Pro SX Racer) and myself.  Little did

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford This time next week and we’ll be at the biggest motocross race of the year – the 2022 Thor Mini O’s Presented by Pro Circuit at Gatorback Cycle Park near Gainesville, Florida. This race has always been a big one but it’s taken on a life of its own the past few years. With parking now spreading into the areas even farther off the property, it’s hard

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good Monday morning, everyone. It’s time for me to do something I’ve been known to do on many occasions…scour results from an event looking for Canadians. That’s what I’m going to do for the Dubya World Vet Championships that just took place at Glen Helen Raceway out in the 909 of Riverside, California. Here goes: *Not all motos were shown as of this posting #619 Bryce Cook

Frid’Eh Udpate #44 | Zach Ufimzeff | Brought to You by KTM Canada By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #44 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update this week brought to you by KTM Canada. The Canadian Triple Crown Series is officially over and we’ve crowned champions. We still have some Future West Moto Arenacross out in Chilliwack, BC to look forward to, but we’ll turn our attention to other parts of

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford We’ve reached the end of another Canadian Triple Crown Series season. How do you think things went? No, we didn’t have the riders from south of the border on teams like we normally see up here, but that’s just because of the barriers to entry at the border that were still in effect. 2023 should see things get back to normal, right? I’m sure not going to

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you’re all reading this during a little downtime from visiting with your family and/or other people who are important in your life. Emily and I did the family visits Saturday and Sunday that took us from Waterloo to Burlington and now back home in London in perfect Fall weather. The weather is perfect again today to get out and do some two-wheel

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Wow, I gained an entire day! I went through all of yesterday thinking it was Monday. I guess because we raced Friday and Saturday this past weekend I went into autopilot and figured it was Saturday and Sunday. I felt guilty about not doing a Monday Morning Coffee column yesterday because I went straight to a race recap article (Read it HERE) and now here I am

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | September 2022

Off the Cuff with Jacqueline Ross | September 2022 By Jacqueline Ross Greetings, humans. I’m sitting down typing this 4 hours post knee surgery. When inspiration calls I always pick up! So helloooo and welcome to September’s column! I feel that every personal challenge that I’ve faced and overcome along with every race/event that I’ve entered has prepared me for this moment, the “rebuild of my left knee.” I share

Monday Morning Coffee | What Happened at the 2022 MXON?

By Billy Rainford Well, this Monday Morning Coffee finds me in a Starbucks in Battle Creek, Michigan. It feels appropriate, since this weekend at the 2022 MXON was definitely a battle! Every year, we head into these things with the same thought: “We have the strongest team every assembled this time!” And to be honest, the team usually is great and we’ve got the best riders possible to represent the
