Riders from throughout B.C. left it all on the track during the weekend when the Williams Lake Dirt Riders Association hosted rounds seven and eight of the 2015 Lucas Oil Motocross Series.

From four year olds to adults, riders competed for points in the overall season standings in the B.C. Motocross Association sanctioned event.

WLDRA vice-president Brock Hoyer said it was a phenomenal event.

“It was an awesome weekend,” Hoyer said. “Our local racers did an awesome job and the weather was great for races.”

Thanks to the efforts of multiple volunteers and donations, the weekend went off without a hitch, he said.

Adding to the excitement of the weekend and the aesthetic appearance of the WLDRA track, Pioneer Log Homes unveiled a newly-built, Pioneer Log Homes race tower and announcers stand and starting booth and presented it to the WLDRA on the grounds.

Some filming was also going on for the company’s TV show.

André Chevigny, of Pioneer Log Homes, said himself, Beat Schwaller, Tom Gebauer, Blaine Williams, and Brodie Glover worked on the project and were happy with the end result and to help out the local organization.

Riders, meanwhile, raced two motos on Saturday and two more motos on Sunday to determine overall standings in rounds seven and eight.
