BCMA/CMRC South Series @ GRMX

The past weekend the Green River Motocross Track held the BCMA/CMRC  South Series Spring Double Header. The two days of racing action was full of excitement and perfect racing weather! Supercross racer Kyle Beaton showed up for some fun as he made a clean sweep of both Pro Classes! Despite the fun that most riders had, some others were not so lucky and took some unfortunate crashes landing them in the clinic. Hopefully those who took a fall heal up and get back on their bikes soon!

Kyle Beaton going for the win!

AFP World Championship Big Air

The AFP World Championships Big Air Finals went down on April 21, in Whistler BC. Conditions were wet, but that didn’t appear to hold any of the athletes back from throwing it down for the 15,000 spectators that gathered in Whistler Village to enjoy the action. 27 men would go through eliminations and only eight would move onto the finals competing for a brand new Chevrolet Sonic. When it was all said and done Gus Kenworthy found himself on top of the podium again after landing a double cork 1620 tail grab, Vincent Gagnier stomped double bio octograbs on both his runs and found himself with a second place finish, and Russ Henshaw took home third with a  double cork 1080 mute to japan grab.
