Club News

***Club Track***

The club track is open for the season to active MEMBERS ONLY. REMEMBER, you MUST have your membership parking pass on display, track access bike sticker applied AND assigned bike numbers on your bike while on club property. NO EXCEPTIONS! The pits are still very soft in many spots so be smart about where you park. Don't rip up the grass by keeping to the higher dry and solid areas near the drive way or kids track. DO NOT RIDE THE TRAILS! Trails will remain closed for another week at least and going in there now will create ruts and ruin them for the season. Any non-members members are trespassing and authorities will be called if caught.

MX Round #2 - Monday, May 20 - Club Track

Let's try this again. The season is finally here! A big thank you to our race sponsor Just Revive It who's in the St Anns area and ready to get you parts or service your bike, quad or any other ORV. Talk to Jamie McCollum at the track if you need. The Victoria Day Monday race is our most attended event of the year and being that it'll be our new season opener, be sure to take note of the class and schedule changes so you're ready for sign in and get to your motos throughout the day. The CRC will be at sign in if you have questions or you can email them at crc@steelcityriders.ca if you wish. Have your transponders active and charged since we can't help you if they aren't being picked up by the scanner. All are welcome to race without a transponder, you just won't gain point towards a series year end award. Below is the worker roster for those flagging.

***2019 MX CLASS RESTRUCTURE***

As we are all preparing for the upcoming season, your SCR Class Review Committee (CRC) has spent a significant amount of time over the winter evaluating how to make SCR race days run a bit quicker but also make them more safe. The CRC proposal was adopted by the majority in attendance at the last members meeting which means changes for 2019. SCR will depart from the long history of running the 50cc class independently from the main track, and will now run the races concurrently with the main track. Main track practice will no longer be delayed and will begin right after riders meeting. We will also see a Mini beginner class which will be a less competitive moto for those future stars just getting their boots broken in. Skill classes (Nov/Jr/Int/Exp) will no longer 'ride up' a class but will now have a second class option of Youth A or B for those under 30. For the +30 riders, there will now be separation for those 30-39 into +30A or +30B, and for those 40-49 into +40A or +40B. We will continue with the +50 and +60 age classes. The class restructuring and breakdown can be reviewed along with the redistribution of riders in the below document. Any questions or concerns are welcomed at the SCR members meeting on April 3rd. Additional details will be published in the 2019 rule book and the revised race day schedule will be posted shortly.

ATTENTION: Questions on any of these changes can be sent to crc@steelcityriders.ca. Thank you.
