NEW FOR 2021: In 2021 there will be changes to the classes that will line our gates for the 29th year. There has been a lot of discussion, debate and hard decisions made around all changes at Walton TransCan GNC this year. We know some will be welcomed while others will be tougher to hear – please understand we have based these decisions on three years of consistent data.

There will not be 450 Junior or 450 Intermediate classes in 2021 at the Walton TransCan Grand National Championships (GNC). This is due to the changing trends in motorcycle racing: young riders are not as comfortable on the larger bikes, older riders are focused on Pro and age classes. The changing cost in racing means fewer riders can afford multiple bike options. All this translates into fewer 450 riders. 450 can still race age classes and Open classes at the Walton TransCan GNC.

The Youth Class will be now open to Intermediate/Junior/Beginner classified athletes at Walton TransCan GNC. It is not open to Pro-level riders.

Schoolboy 2 12-17 is being reintroduced for riders aged 12-17 on a 250F. There are large numbers of athletes in this bracket and it is a really exciting class to bring back to the National level. Regions will not hold qualifiers for this class. Entry will be accepted as first-come, first-served. 

The Fox Racing Instinct Bronze Boot will include points from the Youth class and SchoolBoy (1+2) 12-17 classes. 

UPDATE March 29, 2021: Girls 9-16 has been added back to the event roster on a trial basis for 2021 and the class will be revisited prior entries opening up for 2022.

50cc 4-6 will move to the small track in 2021. This small track is being developed and expanded. Riders in 50cc 4-6 can still compete in 50cc GP on the large track. This addresses the racer intimidation of the big track and safety issues raised by parents in 2020.

+30A will no longer be an available class (see ProAm and +25).

+50 will have their own Gate in 2021.

ProAm is being added to the schedule. There has been a renewed interest from fast riders to compete at Walton TransCan GNC. Also with the removal of 450 Intermediate, this class offers additional race options for riders on a 450. 

The Tyke Class is back for 2021, and will be following the same rules and regulations as AMO: Tyke class is strictly 4-8 years of age on training wheels, or no training wheels, CRF, TTR, PW, etc. ONLY. No KTM, Husky, Gas-Gas, or Cobra bikes in Tyke for 2021 and beyond. 

The Edge of Walton Challenge Course will be welcoming your little ones for a free camp experience Wednesday – Friday, 9:00am – 12:00pm ages 4-8. Please register your camper below as numbers will be limited due to increased demand!
