President’s Message Hi everyone! I am very excited to be the 2013 BCMA president, and am looking forward to the racing season. For those of you who don’t know me, I have been involved in the sport of motocross since 1982. That was when I met my husband Dale, who I am sure you all know! It wasn’t long before I was following him out the track watching prac,ces and races, and was pulled into the world of motocross. I quickly became a photographer, lap counter, score keeper, medic, and Team Dale manager. We travelled around the province and into Alberta, pursuing his passion. CMA, PMA, and even the birth of CMRC, we have seen it all! Somewhere among all this travel and expense, we managed to ﬁnd the ,me to get married and have two children. Kids didn’t slow us down; they were immediately (within a week!) carted oﬀ to races and grew up in the dirt at the provincial tracks. We drove cross-country pursuing Dale’s passion, which has now become a family passion. Jeremy began racing at age 6 at Mission Raceway. Since then, we have been packing two bikes, and became a real race “team”. Our daughter Miranda takes photos, does lap coun,ng and refereeing around the province. We have met wonderful new friends, miss the friends who no longer race, and enjoy ,me at the track with all the families.
I bring many years of experience to this board, and look forward to guiding us to an exci,ng new year. We have amazing board members who I am thrilled to be working with. We are looking into some new ideas and concepts for this year’s race season, which we hope to share with everyone soon. Feel free to contact me via email or Twi@er, and I will be happy to address any ques,ons or concerns you have regarding the direc,on of the BCMA.
See you at the track!

WOLFF WINS TOP CANADIAN CANADIAN KAWASAKI PRIZE BIKE
Hayden Wolﬀ wins a brand new Kawasaki KX 250F for his top Kawasaki points achievement in 2012 for all of Canada, 3rd year in a row this prize has come to a BCMA Rider. Following on the foot steps of team mates Landon Nelson (2011 Winner) and Jess PeHs (2010 Winner) another Cycle North Powersports sponsored Rider, Hayden Wolﬀ has won a couple great prizes. At 12 years old, Wolﬀ is the youngest rider to win the $3,000 in cash and the 2013 Kawasaki KX 250F. In 12 races last season, Wolﬀ collected 591 points and won three championships. A rider earns 100 points for each win.
Wolﬀ's accomplishment is more remarkable considering he missed six weeks and the ﬁrst three races of the season aKer suﬀering an injury to his hand during early spring prac,ce. The Canadian Kawasaki Team Green points are accumulated throughout Canada.

BCMA HIGH POINTS CHAMPION 2013
7 5 # WYATT WADDELL My name is Wyatt Waddell and I am 15 years old turning 16 this fall. I attend Delta Secondary School and I’m in grade 11. When I am not racing I like to ride my bicycle, build dirt jumps, snowboard, and spend time at the lake doing water sports. I also like photography, filming and making edits of mx travels or biking. I love listening to music and watching videos on line or reading DMX, MXP, Vurb Moto and Racer X. I have been racing Motocross for almost 12 years and have learned a lot from my years of racing. I’ve met some of my best friends through motocross and it feels like another family when I’m at the races. I have two Kawasaki 250’s that have helped me win five championships this year along with the support from many people. I’d like to thank for my successful 2013 would be Cycle North Powersports, Kawasaki Canada, Big Steel Box, FMF, Atlas, 100% goggles, Matrix Concepts, Parts Canada, Thor racing, CTI Braces, Maverick Distributing, CTS Suspension, Chris Buckrell, Risk Racing, Frontier Excavating, Canine Country Pet Resort, and my Mom & Dad.

Congratulations to Parker “the Jet” Engel and his family for a hard earned, well deserved 2013 Rode Warrior Championship!!!
The quest for the BCMA “Rode Warrior” #1 plate started and ended in Ashcroft on at the Eagle Motorplex, points from every track in the BCMA series were accumulated to determine WHO will be the 2013 BCMA “Rode Warrior” (that’s the rider with the most overall points with no throw away races for the season)? The following companies have stepped up to offer their support for the “Rode Warrior”: Valley Speed Machine Shop - Rob Munro and his award winning crew will give a 4 stroke engine performance package. PrintWerx– Murray and Dean Johnson offer a complete graphics kit for the winners bike, plus a decal kit for their truck or trailer- all proclaiming the “2013 Rode Warrior” Golden Tyre- Mike Nichols is giving a complete set of Golden Tyres to the winner. Kawasaki will give the top Kawi rider $500 Kawi cash plus an Ogio gear bag. Lucas Oil – a variety of lubricants VP Race Fuels- fuel jug
Parker’s moto career took a big step forward in 2012 as he emerged as a top 3 contender in the mini classes. Well when the first gate dropped in 2013, “The Jet” served notice that he had matured and gained confidence and would be a force to be dealt with. It didn’t matter where Parker went or who he went against, he banged bars with the best in not only BC but in the country and came away with many wins. Parker proved that no matter the challenge, no matter how good or poor a start he got that he would not fold, that he would not quit, and with the support of his family/ race team he would be there at the finish. If he finished off the podium it was more likely because of a mechanical problem than a rider error.

Race Day Bike Prep by Rob Munro
You’re PUMPED! There’s a motocross race tomorrow and you can’t get to sleep. The excitement of your ﬁrst gate drop keeps running over and over in your head and you wonder if you’ve done everything you can to prepare for the big day. Everyone knows that motocross racing can be a dangerous sport, racers accept that risk. A cri,cal part of that risk management is proper bike maintenance. Don’t add to your risk by riding a dirt bike in poor condi,on or your bike could wind up hur,ng you or someone else. It doesn’t ma@er whether you ride a 50cc 2-stroke or a 450cc modiﬁed ﬁre-breathing monster. When you race a dirt bike, you will punish your machine. Being compe,,ve in a race means that you will push yourself and your machine to the absolute limits. This applies equally to the motor and the chassis. Because of this, you need to make sure that your bike is in the best condi,on that it can be. You might be able to ride around the ﬁeld next to the house with a few bolts missing; worn out brake pads, and bald ,res, but on the track any one of these could spell disaster. Before the race, make sure that the bike you are riding complies with the rules that are set out for the class and race you are signing up for. If you have the owner’s manual that came with the bike, bring it with you to the track. It will have useful informa,on for making adjustments for weather and certain track condi,ons. Since none of us are perfect, I like to make a checklist several days before the race to make sure I don’t forget anything. Clean Bike: Dirt can hide lots of problems. Cleaning the bike will give you the opportunity to visually inspect your bike in detail. Check all ﬂuid levels: Engine oil, transmission oil, coolant, and brake ﬂuid. Tighten all fasteners: Nothing is more embarrassing than a track worker handing you back your kick starter because it fell oﬀ. Check chain: Visually look at the chain and sprockets for excessive wear and adjustment, lubricate before 1st prac,ce. 19
Clean air ﬁlter: Pack a 2nd oiled spare air ﬁlter. Unless you plan on holeshoHng and winning each race, chances are you will need the spare. Check Tire condiOons, and spokes: Overﬁll your ,res at home to 16 PSI, and then come race morning; adjust your ,re pressures to suit track condi,ons and weather. It’s way easier to let a li@le air out the morning of the race than search for a compressor or ,re pump to put air in. Check those spokes; the tension is important especially if you plan on doing the big jumps. Number plate awareness: Be prepared to put a number on both side number plates and front number plate. If you and another rider share the same number, one of you will have to make a change. Electrical tape or duct tape will do in a pinch. Mud Prep: Track condi,ons and weather are very unpredictable. Make arrangements to have a way to st rider out there, but if the score keepers can’t see your numbers, you’re going home empty handed. Fuel: I know what you’re thinking, how could someone not remember to ﬁll up their fuel. It happens, and it even happens at the pro level. Race days are busy, when you sit down for a lunch break, PUT FUEL IN! A li@le prepara,on before race day will not only ensure that your bike will run good and keep you safe, but will allow you to sleep be@er the night before dreaming about that all important day that lies ahead.
