So far we've had top ten male riders of influence, top ten motocross movies and top ten siblings, so some of the names on this list might be a bit familiar. We have riders of International fame and decoration, women who have comepeted in the AMA, the WMA and the FIM. Women who represent Canada in places like the Trials des Nations and the International Six Days Enduro, and can I just say that I am proud to call many of these women friends.
The CMRC Women’s Nationals will be returning for 2012 and will continue with the East/West format that was introduced in 2010. Three rounds for each respective series will be held on the Amateur Days of selected Monster Energy Motocross Nationals, which will provide more attention and focus on the women’s racing.
