Hare Scramble race on March 30

Motocross action goes this weekend at Campbell River track

 

 

 

Want a great way to spend the afternoon of Saturday, March 30? Well the Campbell River Motocross Association has just that for you.

Come up to the track on Highway 28 (on the Gold River Highway, just across the road from the McIver Lake turn-off) when the CRMA is hosting round one of the PNWMA Hare Scramble Championship.

Some extreme skill riding will be happening as the bikes not only ride on the track for a portion of the hare scramble, but also through the bush on  a laid-out trail, up steep hills, over and around objects. This will test any rider’s skill on a motorbike. The course is 14 kilometres long.

Round two of the series goes the next day in Whiskey Creek, so these riders won’t have long to recuperate from the gruelling course in Campbell River.

Admission for the event is just $5 per vehicle load. So load up your car or truck and come on up to the local track and cheer the riders on. If you bring your dog please ensure they are on a leash – not only for their safety but the safety of the riders as well.

If you feel like testing your riding ability bring your motorcycle up and try the course. If you want to try it out you have to sign up at the track at 8 a.m.

Either way it is a great way to spend the day. The event will go rain or shine as these riders don’t mind getting wet or muddy. There will also be a full concession on site.
