Well the 2012 Atlantic Region race season has come to a close. The last two rounds of the series proved to be tough ones, with mother nature opening the skies up after one of our hottest driest summers in history. Mt. Thom MX had its debut round in the Atlantic points series and proved it is one of the best and most fun tracks to ever join the series. The long up hills and big floating jumps made for some excellent racing in all of the classes. The rain came the night before ,which made practice and the first set of motos a little wet, but by the end of the day the track was dialled.
The CMRC, Canada’s premier and only truly National racing organization, is proud to announce the 2012 Canada Cup ATVMX CMRC Fall Series. Now in its 5th season, the series will consist of 4 rounds at arguably some of the best tracks Ontario has to offer. Overall winners from each class will be crowned as Canada’s best in their respective classes at the final event; in addition, the top 5 in each class will be recognized.

Heidi Cooke dominated at Gopher Dunes, and going into Round2 at Ste Julie, the new mom was looking to repeat the show, and she did. Going 1-1, Cooke added another 50 points to her name, while Kristen Mac Donald was pushed into second, going 2-3 edging out Alexandra Raymond whose 4-2 finish was good enough for third overall.
