I'd love to have a drone film it but it simply isn't viable right now. There are a total of two of us doing this whole project and unfortunately, there is just to much work to do everything we would like to do. The track is between 1200 and 1300 meters in length and is geared to more of an old school style, as in, there are no iffy double or triple jumps. The dirt is very good, holds moisture unbelievably, and will get very rough. Our goal was to not intimidate or hurt our clientele and to build up the local numbers to come out and ride. It is a little different then any of the other tracks around here, and I think and hope it will be fun to ride for all abilities. We have plans to improve things as we can afford to and any income brought in will be poured back into the track. Please come out this weekend and give us a try - we are looking forward to meeting you all.

Hi everyone,
Sorry I didn't get back sooner with a report on our first weekend but I was like "moto track" all waking hours of the day for 3 weeks and after the weekend was over I didn't want to think about the track for a bit. We had around 55 riders over the two days which I was happy with. I heard 95 % good remarks (they may have been taking it easy on us) along with a few constructive ideas which I am more then happy to listen to. The track held up well, got rough, and basically did what I was hoping it would do. It's one thing to build a track and then something different to see what it does when there are actually bikes on it. We had some fantastic support from the racers that we see on a regular basis in both B.C. series - I was really suprised to see the Piccolo and Benek families show up - and for that I thank you.

We are open again this Oct 15 and 16 weekend and hope to see those of you who supported us the first weekend and those of you who couldn't make it at that time. We've made a few minor changes that were suggested to us and added a couple small obstacles but the track is basically the same. It is awesome dirt, fairly tight, and gets very rough which I think would be a perfect last minute practice before Arenacross begins the next weekend. I hope to see you there.

Our next weekend of practice is only three days away. Sat and Sun 10am to 4 pm. Come on out and support us in our goal to become another choice in Southern B.C moto. If its pouring in the lower mainland, its probably dry in Princeton. If not, our dirt will handle any rain we may get, won't turn greasy, and will get very rough - the way motocross is supposed to be. Come on out for last minute practice before Futurewest Arenacross begins next weekend in Armstrong. The track is groomed, has a couple of rider influenced changes, and will be ready to rock. See you here.
