Race report #1 nov 22.-----65 racers
U13 Meaghan Carmicheal always smiling is the youngest girl racer in the series.
U13 boys Brady Desjardin
U 15 boys is lead by Nic Rodgers
Junior Men 16 strong in this class Darien boomboom Landers leads. It should be noted Kyle Murphy went down in the main
so I suspect the fast Kyle will be doing his best to change tonights race 2 stats.
Open women winner Aja Phillips a big crash at the end resulted in bruises and stiches for some of these girls.
VET Open M. Langleys Mike the masher Mead won his class.
4x Lites  Bob Jones of Lifecycles put down fast enough laps to come out on top.
Vet pro wily Brian Onofrichuck put in his first win of the series.
Pro class  Ryan Murphy is taking over where his working brother Cam last year was in the winners circle.
Great night see you tonight for round 2

Over 80 riders out last night to the practice,place was buzzing with excitement .
Couple of big thank you's over the first race and getting ready for race #2 nov29 tues.
Racing will start at 8 pm .
Remember you can still come out and race,or just practice.
I am asking all riders to spread the word, especially for those younger riders who could become
BMXers ,every sat at  7 pm sun 11am .
BMX/4X has a max$  cap for families of three entries,keeping it  affordable as possible.
Have yet to come out??   You need to be there and then tell the neighbour kids.

FVMBA 4X   series is a BC Cup series.
Winners will get BC Cup winners jerseys.
Nothing has changed, still best three finishs AND you must race the finals on FEB14th.
Newest sponsor NorthShore Bike Shop. I already told those in attendance at last nights race,it's the
young guns who will get first crack at the swag,everyone just smiled.
Norco Rampage frame and possibly another as well.
Great race last night thankfully the turnout was not too crazy as we found out our printer was a smoker.
Practice thursday and next race Nov 29th.

U.S riders who race  say all of the next five indoor 4X races what's the cost?
--$10 event license +12 race fee x5 races=$110 cdn 
$20 fvmba membership optional,
the $10 event insurance is different than the associate club ins. cdn riders
pay,so you have the option of fvmba membership.
We would like to see U.S. riders come out and feel welcome here.
Remember have a U.S. uci license than you have insurance already.

Great first race night last night.

If you raced the last  or any toonie races ,you bought a FVMBA membership ,so no need to worry about 4X ins.
till the jan /feb period as it's cycling bc ins which runs from jan --dec 2011.
G

raced the toonie series ,you are on the list,same if you raced 4X indoor jan /feb at indoor,your covered.
will only cost you the $12 to race or $7 to  practice.

To clarify comp fvmba membership.
At signup it became obvious that clarity was needed.
Those riders 18 and under have the OPTION of a complimentary 90 day membership.

Norco steps up big time as one of the newest sponsors
One of the prizes to be given away at our finals thanks to Norco will be
2011 NORCO Rampage frame $520msrp as well as swag

As well Kona has also confirmed sponsorship for the event and that means more swag to give away to lucky racers.
Especially the young guns, our future.
It's thursday and mtn bike 4x practice, the arena opens at 5pm-9 and sometimes we stay late.

We had a good turnout to tuesdays practice, close to 70 riders .
Remember those who don't want to race can practice on tuesday race nights till 7:30 .
It's free to just come and watch as well ,affordable family fun.
Thanks again to all racers and families who make indoor fun
