Terrace motocross racers making their mark

Motocross season is in full gear, as Terrace riders cue up for a home event July 20 and 21

Motocross season is in full gear, and Terrace motocross racers have a number of events under their belt heading into their home BC Motocross (BCMA) sanctioned race July 20 and 21.

Following a fun race in Smithers in late-May, nearly 10 Terrace Motocross Association (TMXA) riders travelled to Prince George’s Blackwater track June 2 and 3 for a BCMA race, with all riders placing well.

“The group of 50cc riders class was the best I’ve witnessed,” said TMXA’s Ken Parkes. “All riders fast, taking the jumps and very few falls… awesome group of riders that showed the BCMA that Terrace has another group of strong riders coming through the system.”

Some of the Terrace notables at this point in the season in the BCMA standings are Connor McCarron (2), Carter Steele (5), Dario Roldo (8), Levi Leonardes (10), and Shawn Anderson (16) in 50cc; Logan Kuehne (15th) in 65cc; Joey Parkes (2nd) in 85cc; Joey Parkes (3rd), Jesse Lanterman (4) in Supermini; Ty Calcutt (1), Andrew Kennedy (7) in Intermediate;   Evan Pinto (1), Rice Brandt (9), Jesse Lanterman (10) in Schoolboy; and Stephen Greg (7) in Plus 40.

July 14 sees Smithers hosting another fun race, then it’s back to Terrace July 20 and 21 before heading to Williams Lake August 10 and 11, for another BCMA event.
