It’s so far so good for Williams Lake pro motocross racer Brock Hoyer, who’s lit up the track at the B.C. Motocross Association Championship Series’ first two races.
The 26-year-old rider took wins April 5 in Ashcroft in the MX-2 Pro and Youth classes, before duplicating the feat last weekend at Kamloops’ Whispering Pines Raceway.
Hoyer has been competing in the BCMACS since 1997.
“It’s been a long time,” he said. “This series is the grassroots of racing. It started here [for me, racing in Williams Lake] and it’s always fun to get out and ride with the kids.”
Hoyer added he’s been preparing to race the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals beginning May 31 at Nanaimo’s Wastelands with round one. He’s also been busy riding for snow bike videos for upcoming releases from Nitro Circus, Thunderstruck and Brap.
“Nationals are only three weeks away, so I’ve just been getting prepared for that,” he said. “I’ll be doing Nanaimo, then Kamloops, then Calgary, then Regina, and that’ll be it for me this year … just doing the western races.”
Next weekend’s BCMACS race scheduled to be held in Williams Lake, however, will be moved to Quesnel, Hoyer said, as the Williams Lake Dirt Riders Association is still waiting for its track insurance to be finalized.
“It’s being adhered to by a judge … so until we get it finalized and get insurance on the track we’re having to close it for the time being,” he said. “In the meantime we’re just asking everyone to please stay off it because if we catch people on it we’re going to have to plow it flat due to liability issues.”
The Williams Lake BCMA race scheduled for Aug. 16-17 is still planned to go ahead.
Williams Lake’s Marcus Deausy (85cc), Levi Nelson (MX-1 Intermediate), Ethan Desmond (Junior) and Thomas Kaiser (85cc) also compete in the BCMACS.
