Wolff wins top Canadian Kawasaki prize bike
Following on the foot steps of team mates Landon Nelson (2011 Winner) and Jess Pes (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 a6er suﬀering an injury to his hand during early spring prac8ce. The Canadian Kawasaki Team Green points are accumulated throughout Canada.
Hayden WolďŹ€ 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.

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 cri8cal part of that risk management is proper bike maintenance. Don’t add to your risk by riding a dirt bike in poor condi8on or your bike could wind up hur8ng 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 compe88ve 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 condi8on 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 8res, 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 informa8on for making adjustments for weather and certain track condi8ons. 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 prac8ce.
Clean air ﬁlter: Pack a 2nd oiled spare air ﬁlter. Unless you plan on holeshong and winning each race, chances are you will need the spare. Check Tire condiJons, and spokes: Overﬁll your 8res at home to 16 PSI, and then come race morning; adjust your 8re pressures to suit track condi8ons and weather. It’s way easier to let a li?le air out the morning of the race than search for a compressor or 8re 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 condi8ons 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 prepara8on 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.
