Confirmed Series Participants Just Announced

Cornwall, ON (April 8, 2016)– Just announced, Laminacorr Racing has confirmed the top six Canadian off-road series that will be involved in the 2016 ‘Ride like a Girl’ contingency program. After a rigorous process that saw numerous applications, the final six have been chosen based on their commitment and support of women off-road racers.

Hundreds of female riders will be competing in these series, including: Shelby Turner, Lexi Pichout, Melissa Harten, Felicia Robichaud, Megan Griffiths, Gemma Pope, Porche Reynolds, Veronique Chaine, among many other Canadian racers.

In the 2016 season, the Alberta Motorsports Association (AMSA) returned for a second year and will receive funding for all six of their CMRC XC for a total of $1200.00.

Off-Road Ontario (OO) will returned for a second year and will receive contingency funding for all eight XC events in Ontario for a total of $1600.00.

Federation des Motocyclistes de Sentiers du Quebec (FMSQ), is Canada’s largest XC series with six women’s moto class and more than 100 female racers. This represents the largest presence of female racers in all of Canada. The FMSW will receive funding for all nine XC events in Quebec, for a total of $1800.00.

The Pacific North West Motorcycle Association (BCORCS) from British Columbia will receive funding for five events, for a total of $1000.00.
