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.

Have you looked at our Track standings lately?  We have 4 fast girls in the top 5 spots and 6 in the top 10. Incredible, I don't think we have ever seen that. Watch out boys, these up and coming girls are FASSSST! 
Race results and Track standings are updated.

We are always looking for Volunteers around the track in order to run races. We need first-aid, corner, staging, 50/50 sales, finish line, gate-operator, and track maintenance.  Non of these positions require experience. We can train you.  Please fill in when you can.  To all you volunteers who stepped in last night and every week we are ever grateful towards you.

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. If you would like to volunteer but don't feel you can commit, why not offer to stand in as a back up to a position, or perhaps offer to help with Set-up/take down, First-Aid, 50/50, staging, finish line or corner duties.

August 19th Blast.

What a fun Night out there with 104 riders and 21 half trackers. Nice to see a few kamloops riders out, and several from Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford.
With the summer light coming to an end we were able to race under the lights.
There were some reall AMAZING races going down last night. The girls classes continue to grow and we had another full rack of 8 women in the cruiser class.
In the old guy open, 20 men showed up to put the speed and skills to test. Nico and Jason had an incredible battle down all 4 straights in the 'A' main, with Nico just edging out Jason at the line. There was a plenty of place swapping in this moto with these 8 all having the speed to get it done.
Rory Ennis was carrying a little extra weight with all the dirt he collected in the semi-final, but that didn't slow him down from taking the 'B' main win.
'C' main winner Jay Sinclair was happy to make it around the track without Ken Nunes bumping him, though he took Ken in spirit for a ride on his back.

Payton Elliott took the  6 and under Female Novice win, while Bryn Harvey grabbed the 9 Novice Female, and sisters Elana Knight and Shay Knight snagging wins in 7 Female novice and 10 Expert girls.

Big shout out to all The North Shore riders for making the venture out every week, and most importantly last night for grabbing so many of the volunteer positions around the track. We appreciate your help immensely.  Parents, please consider volunteering some of your time. We need volunteers to maintain the track and most importantly to aid us in running the weekly races. No experience is necessary and we can always use help with corners, staging, finish line, 50/50 sales, concession, gate operation, track watering, grass trimming, weed pulling, rock grabbing and on it goes.

We are coming up to our race cut off date for year end prizes. Cut off date will be our September 2nd race. make sure you come out the next 2 weeks to grab those races.
Our AGM will be scheduled during the race break Tuesday September 23rd. If we are weathered out we will try the 30th, then barring that at the Year End wrap party, date forthcoming soon.

Big shout out to all of our tremendous sponsors this year who have really helped us out.
