The 2013 Off Road Ontario Cross Country series kicked off this long weekend in Colborne, Ontario. The crowd was big, as one would expect for the series opener, with higher than anticipated turnouts in every class across the board, with Novice B taking home the prize for largest class of the day.
The 2013 Offroad Ontario enduro series kicked off in southwestern Ontario this past weekend. The Lynn Valley Dirt Riders hosted the immensely successful 2013 running of the Beagle Bash Enduro. In the era of increasing restrictions it was good to see so many riders participating in one of SW Ontario’s longest running events. Ninety-one racers and forty-five trail riders were met with less than spring like conditions. By the time the race began, the frost had melted and the skies were clear. The sun remained throughout the day, and riders, both competitive and recreational, had an incredibly enjoyable day.
So, I’m sorry first off that it has taken me this long to get this posted. Layne, this apology is for you! I told you Sunday at the Codrington round of the OO XCs that I’d put a post up for you, about the awesome way you stopped to help a Mini Junior rider (Devyn Marshall, one of the youngest riders on the course) who was having problems on a particularly rough section of trail. It was the last cross country of the year, and I missed accepting my award and giving my speech because I was out on the trails taking pictures.
The Chicopee Ski Resort played host to the eigth round of the Offroad Ontario Cross Country series, and when the dust settled, because as this summer has proven there will always be dust, Brian Wojnarowski was on the top spot of the box with a nearly two-thousand dollar pay day, the largest pay outs for a cross country in Ontario ever. Josh Long, who had been seated in first in points, was forced to sit this event out and might be out for the rest of the season, with a broken collar bone.
The 58th running of the Corduroy Enduro in Gooderham, Ontario is creeping closer with each passing weekend. Only four more remain until the big day and the online registry is open for another two weeks, so get on and sign up.
The MotoMotion event is fast approaching. Will Long be able to battle back and take a win from Wojo, who`s looking for his third win in a row this season? What about the other classes? Expert points leader Zach Lewis is looking to charge the Pro class, leaving a vacancy on top of the Expert Podium, will second and third place step up?
The season is well underway and so far the racing has been great! Some of our old sponsors came back like KTM on the point and Machine racing, Apex Cycle, Lachapelle Racing Products, Woody's cycle Hone Printing and we welcome some new ones like LB Graphics, OSSA Canada and Free Flow MX park. Remember these guys they support our sport, please support them!
