Tonights Inter / Expert coaching session from 5:50 to 6:30pm and open gate practice from 6:30pm onward will proceed. Weather is holding up for us.
As Jaime would say WOOT WOOT!
Awesome night of racing once we got underway. 114 Riders and 26 half trackers.
All 3 motos ran under the lights and we had a fun time doing it.
Congratulations on the Move to Intermediate Tanner Hayden, and the moves to Expert, Logan Jones and Cayden Libby.
All your efforts are clearly showing.
Womens cruiser class is gaining steam. These ladies were running a Main again last night. So awesome to see the support they give each other out there. As for Mens cruiser, Jason Wesson was able to grab the win once again. Holding off Dustin and Daniel to the line.
Great racing in 8 Intermediate with the riders all coming in tight through the corners. Unfortunately 3rd moto we saw 3 of them hook up and hit the ground in our rhythm section. All got up pretty quick and finished up. Tough boys.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who stepped up last night. We actually had a pool to pull from. This makes everything run so much smoother.
As a reminder, Riders please check the Riders list to ensure you have the correct plate and are in the right class. This greatly aids us in preparing the motos quickly and accurately.
Monday September 22nd is our last Intermediate / Expert coached session from 5:15 to 6:30pm. Open gate practice 6:30 to 8pm.
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 October 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. 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, or corner duties. 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.
Only 3 local Tuesday Night races left for the Ridge season. Come on down and join in the excitement. We couldn't ask for better weather and we know you riders and parents NEED to get out of the house and burn off some steam.
Please pre-register via our Facebook Events page, the Hot-line @ 604-878-1193 or at the Moto shed from 5:30 to 6:30.
Once the riders list is posted, please carefully check to enusre your age, name, class and plate number are correct.
We are looking for Volunteers tonight to help prep the track with water and sweeping and then for Staging, Finish Line, Corners, First aid and Concession.
See you all tonight under the lights!!
ps, Bring a blanket or jacket, the temps drop when the sun drops.
