Orangeville Indoor 4-Cross, BMX & MTB - Rounds 6 & 7 January 4th, Orangeville ON

Race report and results, January 05, 2009 - by- Brent "Smitty" Smith

Rounds 6 & 7 were on a brand new track, somewhat plagerized from the NBL Christmas race, but much to the delight of racers big and small. A simple U in a U design, with the first straight on the inside U and a left hand first turn. Two smaller jumps in the first straight instead of one bigger one worked good for the real little ones to build up the momentum, and worked as rhythm for the bigger riders. Even with yet another looming winter storm, attendance was up on Sunday which made for more great racing action. Great battles in many classes like Aaron Smith and Kyle Sangers ridin like pros and trading 16 & Over Expert MTB wins.

On the Pro men Mountain bike side, Alex Brancier continued his streak with a win on Saturday. More of the same great racing we've had in this class, including the underdog, Tom Kakamousias proceeding to back up his good shows at rounds 4 & 5 with a big win on Sunday. Correct me if I'm wrong, but pretty sure I called out Tommy as a guy who could win this stacked class.

On the Pro BMX side, we had a visitor from Australia. Jade Macpherson is in Ontario getting married to his Canadian fiance. Jade was a warm welcome to the Indoor and rode well, but got squeaked out by hotshoe local Greg Bidwell for the transfer to the main. We want to wish Jade and his new bride the very best of luck in the future. Bob Rowley carried on his perfect series roll, while Bob's older brother Jason traded second and thirds with Greg and his big welds !

Over to the mains we saw some more of the same great race action with the classes, BMX and MTB's mixed to make up some good competition. Saturdays stacked 7 & under bmxers had an awesome main. All 4 riders were bangin elbows over both jumps down the first straight. Not one lil guy would back off, when the dust settled Curtis Krey was down and Sheldon Tryon battled through for the win.

Even the novice classes show steady improvement and good entertainment. As usual, anything can happen with the novices and our vendors from black pony have a crew racing that is just pure fun. Great to see the riders havin such a good time.

On a more serious note, our friend Sterling Evans is going in for surgery before the next races. We are all so proud of Sterling for the way he has handled this difficult situation, so positive and cool about everything. We also want everyone to put their postive energy towards Sterling as he deals with the surgery and recovery. Please and thanks.
