Our Track Spotlight in 2016
For this weeks' track spotlight we jump back into the North with a track that gives riders of all ages an experience that is well worth a little more truck time to get to!
The Terrace Motocross Association (TMXA) takes prides in running a great place to ride and has made it their mission to send riders home with a smile on their face. We were able to get some responses to our questions regarding the track and facility and what better guy to give us the skinny, than club president and moto head Aaron Croot.
Check out some of Aarons responses to the questions below:
MCQMX - What are the things riders love most about your track?
Aaron - Separate track for novices, track is wide, close location to town, good viewing for spectators, great maintenance, community support.
MCQMX - What are some of the challenging aspects with riding your track?
Aaron - High speed, large jumps, sand section, flat corners.
MCQMX - What kind of soil makes up your track?
Aaron - Nice topsoil, sand, fast drainage, it can absorb a lot of rain.
MCQMX - Are there plans for any changes to the track or facility for 2016?
Aaron - Not yet, move whoops maybe?
MCQMX - What would you like riders and families to know about your track or area that you think would encourage them to come to your mcqmx event date(s)?
Aaron - Great fishing this time of year, outdoor activities, trail network for family rides.
We asked Aaron who might be a rider that has spend some seat time at the Terrace track and he was quick to get us in contact with 2015 BCMA Junior MX2 and MX3 Champion, James Taylor (#304).
James had this to say about his home track, "I am a little biased because Terrace is my home track, but after each event held there I always get great rider feedback inquiring on things like when is the next events? Can we come back and camp for the weekend and practice? Northwest Community College equipment operator school does a ton of work for us with training operators on their equipment. They are quick to complete change requests and are a huge asset to our club. We also get community support from others including the Skeena saw mill who donated over a hundred loads of mulch last year which. This really helped with retaining moisture and adding to the already amazing soil!"
Make some plans to support our Northern BC tracks and Let’s Go Racing in Terrace May 21, 22!!
