END OF ANOTHER GREAT SEASON
The 2015 Metropolitan Sports Committee’s Championship Motocross Series has come to a close. The last day of racing was a very cold one with bursts of snow at times in the afternoon. It reminded me of the first race of the year with the challenges the weather gave all of us for most of Spring and into early Summer. Once the weather let up, we then had a very dry, hot summer. Weather is the one variable we have absolutely no control over. Because motocross races can be run in almost any condition, we were very fortunate to only have one race cancelled due to poor weather and we appreciate the participation on those tough days.
2015 brought some new champions that some may have not thought were possible given the high caliber racers, racing this series. Watching some of our riders go from rusty, spring racers to in shape, finely tuned skilled pilots of these race machines was just great. 50cc peewee riders getting their first trophy to Vet riders getting their first win are what this is all about. The many family’s of MSC Motocross coming together to support injured riders, or help someone in need, and even morn the loss of a friend/rider as a family is powerful, genuine, and humbling. I am proud to say I am a member of this organization.
2016 is being organized right now. We are setting up our dates to offer our racers the best options possible. As this fall progresses, we will be posting our schedule, any rule changes, and exciting new additions to our program that can only be found with the MSC. Rider feedback throughout the season has not gone by the wayside. We are making it our number one priority in using the feedback from our riders, family members, and close consultants within our industry to steer the MSC down the path of success and fun for our riders.
Our banquet will be held on Feb 14th, 2016 and of course we will be raffling off thousands of $$$ is prizes, a 2016 250F and a 2016 450F motocross bike. CLICK HERE to download the Banquet Registration Form.
