CDNWMX East | Press Release
By Leah Clarke
The 2016 Canadian Women’s Motocross Nationals were a huge success, with a full gate of ladies at each round and tough competition. I hope that the momentum will continue into this year and that lots of ladies come to participate. This year the CMRC Women’s East Nationals will consist of four rounds at Gopher Dunes, Ulverton, MX Bon Conseil and RJ’s.
The full schedule is as follows:
2017 CMRC EASTERN CANADIAN WOMEN’S NATIONALS
Saturday, July 8 Gopher Dunes, Courtland, Ontario
Saturday, July 15 MX Bon Conseil, Quebec
Saturday, August 5 Motocross Deschambault, Deschambault, Quebec
Saturday, August 12 RJ Motosport Park, Barrie, Ontario
Notably, the series will move to a track that has previously never been on our circuit: MX Bon Conseil. This is an exciting addition to our series and I can’t wait to see the girls battle it out here.
CMRC will be giving 100% payback from all the race entries, so the more girls that race, the bigger the payback! CMRC and I couldn’t make this happen without the help of our sponsors.
This year, Motovan Corporation will be our title sponsor with a significant contribution to our series. Motovan is Canada’s ultimate source of power sports parts and accessories, and they are supporting the series with some amazing products like ZOX helmets, Dunlop tires, Ogio products, Leatt products and EVS products.
Mongoose Machine will be providing awards for the girls who get 4th and 5th overall at each round. The girl who gets 4th overall will receive a $250 gift certificate towards a Rekluse clutch and 5th overall will receive a $100 gift certificate towards an InnTeck Oversize Front Rotor kit.
KTM Canada is providing awards and product for the girls as well.
Podium awards will be from MXTrophies at every round.
This year, EVERY lady rider who signs up and races will have a chance to go home with some awesome prizes. We will have a draw table set up at every round of the series! We will have products from M9Graphics, Insane and Reckless Clothing, MICA Sports, Atlas Brace, Evans Cooling, and Motovan.
A series cash purse will also be provided to the top 10 finishers of the series.
Money raised by Breanna Rose, Kassie Boone, Shandell Przybilla and Kenzie Hennessy from the moto camp at Gopher Dunes last fall will go towards the series purse as well! Women’s Moto t-shirt sales have also contributed to the series purse. (Amount to be determined)
This year the sign in process will be all online, and the deadline for this will be the Wednesday before each race on the CMRC website. Please make sure to have your CMRC membership in advance and sign up in advance, so that you can call CMRC if you have any problems with the process. If you are a lady that plans on racing, please make sure that you know how to do the sign in process online well in advance of the first race! Contact CMRC if you need assistance. There will be no exceptions to this rule!

Instructions on “How to Pre-register,” and the 2017 Rulebook are on cdnwmx.com.
Currently I am still looking for volunteers to do jobs on race day such as announcing at riders meeting, taking photos, setting up the podium, and setting up the draw table, and cleaning up after. If we have enough volunteers for each job, the day should run smoothly. I cannot do it all myself. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
In addition, I am also looking for volunteers to run the show next year as I will be writing my thesis and will not be able to organize this series. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested
