September 9th!

Thank you all for coming out to make Ridge such a Fantastic evening.
With riders coming out from Langley, Abbotsford, Surrey, and North Shore we had a ton of fun.
123 Riders and a phenomenal 27 Half Trackers said forget early bed times, we have No School.
The atmosphere was electric with all the cheering from parents and fans from the sidelines. Jason Wesson returned to barely edge out a hard charging Nico Richard for the Cruiser main Win.
Ladies cruiser was running a Main last night so the ladies got to put down a few more laps. Laurie Harding took the win but there was a great battle right to the line between Marlana and Bea, with both putting in 110% to the finish.
6 Novice male Brody Lynd stood #1 after climbing through his motos and Main, and Ryder Caponero took the 7 novice win also never dropping a lap.

Congratulations Darion Kennedy on the move up to 5 Intermediate.

Thank you to all our volunteers. We had a bunch of new volunteers last night stepping in to help out. We greatly appreciate it. No special skill sets required, we take all offers of help.

Our AGM is scheduled for Tuesday, September 23rd during the break. Should we be weathered out, we will try Tuesday, September 30th and failing that date we move to Sunday Cctober 5th during the Year End Wrap party.We have positions open on the executive this year, so if you would like to help out with the organization and direction of Ridge Meadows BMX, please sign up at the Moto Shed, or send us an email to the track account.

The more positions we can fill with names prior to the AGM the quicker the meeting will progress. Please consider volunteering on the executive or in a back up role.

We got Turnt up! August 26 2014

Our last Tuesday race of August saw a great turn out. 117 Full Track Riders and an amazing group of 26 half trackers sprung up on us and made for an exciting night of racing. Motos 2 and especially 3, were run under the lights adding to the intensity.

5 and Under Novice male running a main with brothers Darion Kennedy and Tyson Kennedy going one-two to the line.

Our Cruiser open saw the same craziness.
In the 'A' main we had Dustin Pospolita edge out a hard charging Daniel Pellikan and Nico Richard.

Ladies Cruiser main winner McKenzi Mc-Hale-Boulter edged out Alanah Lewis for the one.

The girls continued their domination on the track with Karsen Tielen walking away with wins in all 3 motos of 12 Expert male, Reighan Hill grabbing 3 and taking the One in 10 Expert Female, Bryn Harvey going for 3 and taking the one, in 9 Novice Female, Cayden Libby hanging on and taking the one in 7 Novice female, and Payton Elliott bringing out the power for one in 6 and Under Novice Female.
