Local motocross riders honoured at ceremony
The Terrace Motocross Association (TMXA) held their annual awards ceremony this year at the Terrace Curling Club on Jan. 5, in conjunction with the first 2013 Televised Supercross Event. Approximately 40 members attended the event.
The club recognized many area local riders who ended up with top points in their respective divisions in the British Columbia Motocross Association 2012 Provincial Race Series, including the Overall BC Points Leader Ty Calcutt who won a $1,000 Race Engine package from Valley Speed Machine Shop for his efforts.
