March 31st Race Night - Season Kick off

2015 Opening Night!
2015 Opening Night!

What a GREAT night to get the season started! (maybe could have been a little warmer).
101 Riders and 17 Half Trackers from the Lower Mainland and Alberta came out to give their legs a spin.
There was definitely a bunch of complaining from the old dudes about how much their legs hurt, track is too long, darn, made the Main.
From all observations everyone was having a good time, rekindling friendships and making some new ones. This is what BMX is all about.
This will only get better as the season gains momentum. Sorry for the delays getting started.  With all the new onsite registrations there was plenty of Data to enter.
BIG Thank you to all our Volunteers last night. Remember volunteers get a free race for their rider.

Congratulations to the following Riders on your move-ups.

Kamryn Howlett - Expert Female
Brady Scott - Intermediate Male
Cody Mills - Intermediate Male
Tyson Kennedy - Intermediate Male

Race Results are posted.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at practice Monday April 6th and Racing April 7th.
