Muddy Mission Motocross

Circa 1990 — A very muddy CMA motocross race at Mission Raceway shot with very grainy colour film which seems to make the mud look even worse than it actually was. Another picture discovered while searching for pictures to include in my book about motocross. #020

Pit stop

Oct 1987 — Aldergrove, BC — A rider repairs a flat during the annual hare and hound at the long gone Little Rock Motocross Track in Aldergrove. A good rider could do it in five minutes. A bad rider would pack up, go home, and take the wheel to his local motorcycle shop. #043

It rained, a lot.

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.

Push bike

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

Anything for a fender

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
