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.

We are always looking for volunteers during practice and race nights and as an incentive we offer your rider a free race.

We can use help in staging, finish line, gate operator, concession, pre-race set-up / teardown, First-Aid, 50/50 sales, announcing 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. No special experience necessary. Without volunteers we can't race.

See you at the Track.

Riders worked out the back to school blues

Great night of racing. Going back to school didn't stop any of the riders, parent and friends from showing up and laying down some hot laps under the lights.
What a fantastic atmosphere as we welcomed a few new riders, and joined in congratulating a couple riders on their move ups. Dexter Winton is now an Expert and Christopher Bajda is now Intermediate. Hard work from these boys is paying off.
Our 6 Novice winner Seth Boyer continues his streak, Jason Wesson was a little bumped and bruised going into the Crusier 'A' main but held off a hard charging Grant Brereton-Stiles to take the 1 spot for the evening. Laurie Harding continues to dominate in Womens Cruiser.
Our girls classes contine to grow and Kendall Katelyn enjoyed her first race of the season.

BC Cup #6 and BC Cup Finals are this weekend at Ridge. Pre-register online by midnight September 9th. For SATURDAY and SUNDAY's races.
You do not have to be following the series to compete. You can race one day or both days and this is a good chance to enjoy a larger race with different competition at your home track. Riders will be racing for medal of the day. Riders who qualify with 3 races + the finals will be racing for a coveted BC Cup Plate and Age Group Winners jersey.

Tuesday September 22nd we will be holding our AGM and electing our executive for the next season. If you would like to help shape the direction of the club and give back to the riders and community, please consider running for one of the positions. Details are posted around the track, and available at the moto shed.
Half Trackers must sign-up at the Moto Shed Saturday and Sunday mornings. Cost is $10 per day for Half trackers and they will be racing for medals of the day.

See you at the Track this Weekend!

What a Night! - August 25th recap

Double Point Track Attack race at Ridge and it didn't disappoint. 110 Full track Riders donning their bright gear and 22 half trackers mashing about.
Thank you Riders and Families for spending your Tuesday Nights in our little paradise.

We saw some fantastic action on the track, and most riders kept it rubber side down.

Big Thank You goes out to Tony Lyons for setting up and taking some fantastic photos of our riders and families.
And never to be left out, our Volunteers. You are the backbone of the club and we can't run a race without you.
Thank you for stepping in. As an added incentive to jump in, All volunteers receive a free race for their rider.

Congratulations to Jacob Gulenchyn on his move up to Intermediate.
Mains in a few classes last night with 5 and Under Novice male winner Dylan Gunn going uncontested every moto.
6 Novice male saw Seth Boyer pull off the same Feat, and not to be outdone our 9 Intermediate male main winner Jesse Knight ran the same streak.
Back on his bike and racing locally Jason Wesson kept the main winners streak running grabbing 1's in all his motos and the main. And in our Main Show of the evening Laurie Harding ran with the 1's right to the line.  Excellent racing.
Some of our younger riders were certainly putting their skills learned Monday from coaches Nate Berkheimer and Jared Ennis to use. It is such a treat to see the progression and intensity of the riders this year. They are really absorbing what they are being taught in a lighthearted, fun enevironment.

Remember to Register for the BC Cup #6 and BC Cup Finals being held here at Ridge September 12th and 13th.
