Update Release on April 15, 2015
AMATEUR MOTOCROSS ONTARIO is about to launch their 1st Race of the 2015 Season this Sunday, April 19th at Gopher Dunes. AMO is the way to go for 2015!
We’ve had huge crowds of anxious riders out over the past 2 weekends testing and tuning their bikes and getting their bodies back in shape for the new race season which is about to unfold this Sunday!
For those riders still wanting to get in a few practice laps – Gopher Dunes is open today, Thursday & Friday from 11am to 7:30pm for track riding.
….AND…. JUST ANNOUNCING that we will be open for Practice Riding on the Main Track & Pee-wee Track on Saturday, April 18th from 10am to 3pm!!!!!!!
SATURDAY PRACTICE FEE: $30. per rider + applicable gate & camping fees for Sunday’s race
NOTE: Trails remain closed for about 2 more weeks.
The weather forecast is where we want it to be at right through till Sunday!
Ryan Gauld will be holding an MX Training School this Saturday from 9am to 1pm – if you haven’t signed up yet now’s the time….contact Ryan at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 416-409-5402
Two very important reminders for this weekend:
1) You MUST have your 2015 CMRC Membership to race AMO series (if you don’t have it yet, you can purchase it online at: www.cmrcracing.com or at the track this weekend, bike #’s will not be confirmed)
Full CMRC Membership is $140. Day Passes available at $40. (transponders required, not scored for series) Anyone purchasing a day pass will have to fill out a Licence Application, a Minor Release if under 18, complete an Entry Form, plus pay the regular class entry fees. They will likely have to place an “X” after their bike # so it doesn’t conflict with an already assigned #.
2) Make sure you bring along your FULLY CHARGED & ACTIVATED MyLaps transponder. Anyone racing on the Big Track must have a transponder! AMO will have a limited supply of transponders to rent at $30 per day. A credit card will be required as deposit. Transponders can be purchased in advance & allow one week for shipping: http://www.mylaps.com/en/products/mx-flex-subscriptions/599 Must get activated & require a full 24-hour charge.
Now on with more Event details….

It is mandatory that you have your plastic bar-coded 2015 Licence Card! Continuing with last years’ procedure — you sign yourself in by scanning your Card with the bar code scanner and then proceed to select your classes on the touch screen lap tops set up in the Pro Shop/AMO Trailer. Hit “print” and your Entry Form/Waiver will be printed out, this needs to be signed + both pages of the Parental Consent/Minor Waiver form must be completed for those under 18.
Only the newly registered 2015 racers must manually fill-out the Entry Form & enter their transponder code.
FAST & SIMPLE FOR THOSE WITH THEIR 2015 MEMBERSHIP IN HAND!!
Then the racer completes sign-up by signing the Master Waiver (by parent, if under 18), pays his racing fees and gets wrist-banded. Pit-crew & photographers must also sign Waiver Release.
DON’T MISS THE MANDATORY RIDERS MEETING AT THE AMO Trailer at 8:30am. Here you will be given the full scoop on how the day will unfold using the transponder system for the main track, automated scoring, new rules, etc. As an added incentive – The MB1 “Win your Day” draw for 2 FREE gate + entries fees to a racer that MUST be in attendance at the Riders’ Meeting (up to $90. value each) – we call out your name – you are the lucky winner!! Two draws will take place at every AMO Race in 2015! The staff on-site will not repeat the details to those that missed the info session – you’ll be on your own to find out!
Practice begins immediately following the Riders Meeting at 8:30am.
Excellent spectator event!!!
Racing from 9:30am to 5:00pm
All registered racers must have their assigned CMRC # on their jersey/chest protector as well as on the front and both sides of their bike and with proper colours. Numbers can be purchased at the Gopher Dunes Pro Shop (while supplies last). Even with transponders the #’s are still mandatory for back-up manual scoring. Incorrect, duplicated or missing #’s may cause the rider to be scored improperly or disqualified completely!!
