    The Vancouver Island Motocross Association (VIMX) and member clubs Nanaimo, Campbell River, Alberni and Tri-Port Motocross Associations, are proud to announce the Island Event Schedule for 2014. This year we're having a 9 round Island Championship Series followed by an Island Club Series planned in the fall - dates to be determined. Like the past couple of years, most race weekends will include practice days and be single round. The exceptions to this are the Tri-Port race weekend which is a double-header and the Nanaimo Nationals Amateur Day/Round 7 race weekend.

     

    VIMX is also extremely excited that CMRC again chose Nanaimo Wastelands to kick-off the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals series again this year on Saturday May 31st. The Nationals Amateur Day and Round 7 of our Championship Series will be on Sunday, June 1st.

     

    See the Island Schedule link under Racing for more details and the schedules.

    Attention all MX riders, racers, families and enthusiasts! VIMX and the Island clubs strive to continue growing and improving motocross on the Island. To help with that we want your input on what you like, don’t like and want to see happen. To that end, we’ve created an online survey that we’d like you to complete. The survey is anonymous (doesn’t collect or record who you are) but will only allow one submission per computer or device. The majority of the survey is in the form of statements that you can agree or disagree with using the following scale: Strongly Agree, Agree, Neutral, Disagree or Strongly Disagree. You can skip statements that you don’t wish to answer or are not applicable to you. You can also add additional comments related to any question or add general comments, input or suggestions on the final question.

     

    Click the following link for the survey and don't forget to click the "Done" botton at the bottom of the survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JTH6FJ3

     

    Please let other Island racers know about the survey and feel free to share or forward the link. The survey will close on Friday, November 29th at 7pm so please submit your response before then.

     

    If you have any questions about the survey or have any additional suggestions please email info@VancouverIslandMX.com. Thanks for your time and input. We’re looking forward to a great 2014 MX season!

    Attention motocross riders, families and enthusiasts!!! It's that time of year again for Island motocross club Annual General Meetings (AGMs). These are special yearly meetings where the current Club Executives provide their members with an overview of the year and the members nominate and elect the new Board of Directors for the upcoming year. FACT: There simply wouldn't be organized Island-level motocross without strong local clubs and the volunteers behind them working together to run the clubs and coordinate local and Island events. The local clubs NEED their members to be actively involved and giving back to the clubs. PLEASE attend your club AGM and if you can, seriously consider getting involved to help run the club or in one of the many other capacities needed. The AGM meetings are as follows (note that Alberni MX is TONIGHT):

    • Alberni Valley Motocross Association: November 12th at 7pm, Fir Room at Echo Centre. 4255 Wallace Street, Port Alberni
    • Nanaimo Motocross Association: November 17th at 3pm, Oliver Woods Community Centre, 6000 Oliver Road, Nanaimo
    • Campbell River Motocross Association: November 25th at 7pm, Head Injury Group HQ, Campbell River
    • TriPort Motorbike and ATV Club: To be announced

    See the individual club websites and/or Facebook pages for further details on their AGM meeting and other club communications.


    Don't take the local clubs and tracks for granted and expect others to pick up the slack. Instead give back by being an active and enthusiastic member of YOUR club.

    Another great weekend of racing on the Island with Round 7 of the Vancouver Island Championship Series in Port Alberni in the books! The weather cooperated nicely and the track was great. Thanks so much to the hard working crew at the Alberni MX club including Justine Haley, Jeff Stites, Curt Schmidt, Al Peffers and Paul and Dylan Hanson. They even post-groomed the track so it's still in great condition, and the club plans to have groomed/watered practice days on Sundays.

     

    Looking forward now to Round 8/Nationals Amateur Day this coming Saturday, followed by Round 1 of the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals Round 1 event on Sunday.  See previous posts on this website or the VIMX Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/VancouverIslandMX.com for all the details.

    Please note that there have been a couple of changes to the Island Championship Series schedule.  Notably the June 9 Port Alberni race has been moved to May 26th to avoid the conflict with the Nationals Round 2 in Kamloops and the 3 ANQ dates have been added.  Please see the Island Schedule link for full details.
