@GoPHERDUNES is hosting the @CMRCracing Season Opener ANQ Motocross Race on Sunday

Update Blast from the Dunes….April 14, 2011
Two weeks into opening both the big track and pee-wee track (trails still remain closed) we've had record riders out this past weekend almost doubling the riders from the opening weekend prior! 
Saturday proved to be a very successful day, which in addition to regular practice riders flocking in non-stop throughout the day, we also hosted the KTM MX Demo Ride featuring some top Canadian Pro's out doing a few laps on their new KTM's along with enthusiasts getting in some elbow-rubbing and autograph signing opportunities with their idols! 
We were fortunate to miss out on the surrounding thunder and hail storms and had balmy temperature's reaching well into the 20's by mid-afternoon!
Red Bull was back onboard to support this Sunday's CMRC sanctioned practice run, which allowed members an opportunity to test and tune-up for this weekend's Season Opener Race.  Details are outlined below, as well as Sunday's Race Schedule…. 
The track is now CLOSED this week:  Thursday, Friday & Saturday  in preparation for this Sunday's CMRC Opener! 
Saturday, April 30 is approaching quickly and this is when we are hosting our one day Group Motocross Training Session for all levels from 50cc to 85cc & up.  Students will be divided into bike size and level of experience with numerous instructors working with the kids.  Various things will be covered from beginner riding skills to advanced levels, as well as fitness and nutrition with stretching, balance, bike set-up and race preparation, body positioning, braking, cornering, jumping, whoops, starts and stops plus riding and racing strategies, with emphasis on racing in sand. 
All students must pre-register using the downloadable registration form that is available on the 'Rider Training' link of the Gopher Dunes website.  Included with their training fee, each student will receive a pair of SCOTT goggles!  Don't delay…register today!!
Cost:  $160.00 + HST = $180.80       From 10am to 5pm       $50 advance deposit required
6 hours training with two 15-minute breaks & half hour lunch break (pack your own healthy lunch, drink & snack) 
We are also setting up private, semi-private and family safety & beginner training sessions plus advanced mx riding lessons.  Bike, quad and gear rentals also available….we're ready to suit you up and train just about anyone willing to give it a try, from the first-timers to the pro's ready for some tips on sand racing!!

IMPORTANT  Racers must show their 2011 CMRC licence at time of registration.
If you recently purchased your licence and have not yet received it in the mail, you
must bring along your receipt or contact wendy@cmrcracing.com to confirm that you
are registered and get your assigned racing # & also record your membership #. 
VERY IMPORTANT to have this information if you want to race on Sunday!! 
Licences will be sold on Sunday at $140.00, but it will be a time-consuming ordeal & #'s will
not be assigned!  We suggest that you arrive promptly at 6:30am if you still
need to purchase your 2011 licence. 
NEW:  Complimentary CMRC Day Passes will be honoured to NEW RACERS only; that is, never
raced before or haven't raced with any Club in the last 5 years!  These racers will not be
scored or awarded points to qualify for the Walton Amateur National.  Licence app.'s will
still need to be completed, along with the Entry Forms, Minor Waivers, etc.  and the Entry Fee
must be paid. 

All registered racers must have their assigned CMRC # on their jersey/chest protector
as well as on the front and both sides of their bike and with proper colours.  Numbers
can be purchased at the Gopher Dunes Pro Shop (while supplies last).
Incorrect #'s or missing #'s may cause the rider to be scored improperly or disqualified
completely!!  For rules, please visit www.cmrcracing.com
MINORS under 18:  Will have to complete the CMRC 2011 Parental Consent & Minor Waiver
Release Forms with copies available at sign-in.  This means you will need at least one
parent to accompany you at time of registration.    If you have already completed this form
at the CMRC Ride Day this past Sunday, you will need to show your '2011 white card' for authorization. 
What you need for registration so you are not sent to the back of the line…
  • 2011 licence card or you must at least know your membership # & racing #   
  • completed Entry Form & must be signed on back (by parent, if under 18)
  • cash in hand
