June 13th, 1992 — Larry Wear, president of the BC oldtimers motocross club attempting to drain a section of track before the start of the club’s national motocross race at Mission Raceway. He didn’t succeed and the race was probably the worst mud race of all time. More pictures can be found HERE or by clicking on the above picture.
Motocross in the Mud
October 21st, 2007 — Another motocross in the mud picture from Mission. It’s a long push back to the pits when the bike quits during a mud race because nobody, I mean nobody, will help. #724
Circa 1986 — Another gem found while going through my archives looking for pictures to make up a book about motocross racing in the mud. Again the picture is at Mission but this time from 1986 and an illustration why motocross bikes really need front fenders. #048

May 2nd, 2010 — While looking though my thousands of motocross pictures for a possible book project I came across this gem of a young rider at Agassiz who has had enough mud, rain, crashes, and stalled bikes and is waiting patiently at the side of the track for it all to end. It’s one of those pictures that might not make a lot of sense unless you were at the track that day but it was one of those days. More pictures like this will be posted over the next few weeks as they are discovered.
