June 16th Racing was OUTSTANDING!

What a night of racing. The temperature was perfect, the Racers, Spectators and Volunteers were awesome.
111 Full track Riders and 19 half trackers.
With such a great turnout of racing, we had several mains to run last night. So RAD to see so many people enjoying the sport, and continuing to expand the competition base.

5 and under Novice, 7 Novice, 9 Intermediate and mens cruiser, all ran Mains. The ladies cruiser was close to needing a main, but unfortunately 2 ladies had to back out due to working late. Next week, the ladies cruiser class will be the one to watch, as this Friday they are getting some extra training and track time.

Congratulations to Jason Adams and Laurie harding on taking the wins in the Cruiser classes tonight.
Was a great night if your name was Connor. Connor Brereton-Stiles and Connor Brisbin each took the win for the night in their respective classes of 5 and Under Novice and 6 Novice.
Grace Gulechyn grabbed the win in 7 Novice Female, just edging out hard charging Claire Nyholm.

Shout out to Carter Horstman on his move up to the 9 Intermediate ranks. These boys have grown up racing each other for years, and they continue to battle each other hard moto after moto, and then be best buddies after.

The track could use some help this Saturday morning on clearing weeds, trimming grass, smoothing straights and mounting some signage. No experience necessary, and the more the merrier.

Thank you to all of our Volunteers. You are the backbone of the club.
We wish Kai and Jeremy Levin a fast recovery. Father and Son stick together.

Reminder, BC CUP #3 and #4 are at Abbotsford BMX June 27th and 28th. We encourage all riders to attend. You can race one day or both days. This gives you the opportunity to race other competitors and test your skills on a different track, making you a better all around rider.

Results and photos are posted.

June 9th race session was a Blast!

Right out of the gate, we had some intense heated action down the first straight, with Mens cruiser battling each other elbow to elbow to get the holeshot.
The girls classes continue to grow and the girls are fierce. They don't back down from any boys.
half trackers are growing strong. We are seeing more and more young riders on push and pedal bikes, working on winning those candy bags.
Hopefully Satu and Sandy feel a little better today.

Results and photos are posted.

We are always looking for volunteers during practice and race nights. We can use help in staging, finish line, gate operator, concession, pre-race set-up / teardown, First-Aid, 50/50 sales and many other areas. Please consider helping us out so we can put together an excellent night of racing. Sign-up at the Moto-Shed on the whiteboard. Volunteers will get a free race.

During a race, should your rider crash, please remain OFF the track and let our Track officials and First Aid, take care of the rider. IF necessary we will call the parent / spouse / sibling to the track to help with the rider. This is for the safety of everyone on the track.

May 19th Scorcher

What an incredible evening for Racing.
The HEAT was out in full force on the track and in the sky.
Little slower evening with some families extending their holidays with the PRO-D days and sunsine out, but we still had a great turnout.

The Ladies cruiser class is continuing to pull in a full gate, and these ladies are fiesty. Battling hard down each straight, and sharing recipes at the finish line.
Mens cruiser saw Curtis Jensen imagining he had his dirt bike beneath him and rocketing from the gate to the finish line uncontested. Jason Wesson managed to bull back in and keep Lukas Fergusen and Grant Brereton-Stiles out of the 2 spot.
Natasha Miller and Kamryn Howlett continue to get to the top of the Podium in their respective girl classes, Brody Lynd and Cooper James continue their domination of their classes. Brody Lynd looks to be moving on up to 7 Intermediate, to offer a challenge to those boys, Cooper won't be far from heading to 6 Intermediate either.  The youngest Horstman brother Carter, continues to lead the 9 novices continuing with his goal of making Intermediate really soon. Must be something in the Howlett genes, Brady Howlett took all 3 motos in 11 Intermediate. He has been on a streak lately and has his sights set on Expert status.

Congratulations to Reid Messier on the Move up to Intermediate.

THANK YOU to all our volunteers for jumping in and helping us out. With out your willingness to help us fill these positions none of us would be able to enjoy the sport WE ALL LOVE!

Coaching and Practice Monday May 25th and Racing May 26th.
