A great time was had by all that come out for practice day this past weekend. A little rain and a little mud did not stop the riders from preparing for the final race of the motocross season that was to be held at the Campbell River Motocross Track on Oct. 14.

Several riders showed up in anticipation for the race. But Mother Nature had other plans and she delivered them hard and heavy overnight Saturday with heavy rain and strong winds.

The track was prepared nicely for the event by Phil Bachand of Campbell River, but unfortunately it could not be used as the heavy rains the night before flooded the track, making it unsafe for both riders and race staff.
