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!

Little Chilly Night of Racing - May 5th

The night was a little damp and chilly, but we were able to get some riders on the track. Due to the last minute weather call, and drastically different weather around the Lower Mainland, rider attendance was a little dow, but 83 riders and 11 half track die-hards came out to get themselves out there. Some just wanted to race, some wanted extra track time for this weekends National in Chilliwack.

Great to see we had some new riders out tonight in both Full track and half track, and several othersjoined the crowd to see if they wanted to join in the family fun next week.

Nice racing everyone!

Next week we have a few things going on.
May 11th we have Golden Ears Phsio coming out to discuss Concussion Awareness between 5:30 and 7pm.  They will also arrange for group testing dates. Most people with a benefits package will be able to deduct the test cost.

May 12th,  we host our First Track Attack race of the season. Get yoursleves prepared as riders from the other tracks come out to collect points to win the year end prizes and grab the leader plate. More information on Track Attack series can be found below.

Good luck to all our riders heading to the National in Chilliwack this weekend.
