Big turnout for MX race series opener


By Kathy Johnson


With the field full of trailers and gear and the track lined with spectators, the Canadian Motocross Racing Club’s (CMRC) Atlantic series opened on May 3 at the Clyde River Motocross Park.

An estimated 200 entries competed in 19 different classes during the daylong event, including five local riders.

The event was marred when track owners Arthur and Carla Smith’s son David Smith was seriously injured in one of the races. He was recovering in Halifax hospital last week with several broken bones.

Other local riders competing in the race series opener were Austin Goreham, Clark’s Harbour (65cc Peewee); Tanner Christie, Barrington Passage (50cc); Nathan Sears, Doctor’s Cove (85cc); and Dillon Perry, Upper Port LaTour (GP beginner).
