Saturday night was action packed with another great race night! ProAm #5 saw some great racing in both the 13 & Under and 14 & Over classes! Rockin out the WIN in the younger class was none other that Abbotsford's own Zach Frier! Showing his love of BMX and all things Dirt! Zach is going to be tough to beat out of the #1 spot for the series... but that isn't going to stop a lot of others from trying, including Ridge Meadows riders Caleb Dobie and Ryan Tougas just to name a couple! In the 14 & Over class... it was a great show put on by all... Yess Factory Pro, Jim Brown dominated all three of his qualifiers as did another Yess Factory rider, Alex Tougas - the fight to get into the main saw some casualties... but what a great main it was - and great to see Steve Creighton back on the track... Congrats to Jim for the Win!
Sunday was our Full Gate Racing program, and another Fantastic Day of Racing! The Dust Buster Class is getting pretty competative... gearing up for some Dino Dashing??? The Sunday Full Gate Racing concept was brought forward and put in place to get our riders used to fuller racks on the gate, and to try and give them exposure to 1/4's, semi's and mains... and it seems to be working! In order to add some extra FUN into the program we have added our Round One Mystery Riders:
Gavin Baron, Senna Jones, Carter Bybel, Nicolas Richard, JP Baron, Christine Podavin, Kylar Ziola, Trent Sheppard, Bailey McHale-Boulter and Ryker Ziola!
Also as a Bonus, courtesy of Velocity Cycle, Artrageous Screenprinting and Abbotsford BMX, T-Shirts were awarded ( 1 randomly from each class )

One more thing I just have to share... as it takes us all back to why we are doing this... I snapped this picture of our newest rider... after racing today, getting his first ever Trophy for racing... no matter how you place, your first race is always your FIRST... and that will never change!
Congrats Quinn Laynes welcome to BMX !
