Aurora Northern Series - Edmonton

GREAT TURN OUT STONY PLAIN!!!
Was that fun or was that fun!??? 
 
Results will be up later tonight, so keep checking the website to see where we landed! https://auroranorthernbmx.com/ 

Registration for our own Aurora Race on July 12 will open next week, and we’ll have registration directions in next week’s newsletter.

Lets flood the field with Green and Black and show our sister clubs how awesome Stony is!! 
 

Helmets
This is so important we posted it on social and here. 

DO UP YOUR RACERS' HELMETS!!!!
Riders MUST wear properly buckled helmets any time they are on their bikes ANYWHERE on our property. This means from your vehicle to the start gates- if your child is on their bike they MUST have their helmets on.  

We cannot stress this enough, and it doesn't matter if your child doesn't like their strap.  It's not about comfort. 
Those straps need to be tight enough that they will not travel over your racer's chin. For our littlest racers, that means as tight as you can make it. For our bigger racers, all we can offer is the suggestion that they are never too old to double check their noggin protectors.
 
If you look closely at the photo below you will see that the racer had his helmet strap done up but very loosely for the convenience of pulling the helmet on and off. Clearly that is not good enough.
Please please please please please understand how important it is to make sure your kids’ helmets are done up.

(please note this is a photo from 2013, and while we do not know how this racer ended up after this crash, we are betting he didn't walk off the track, and very likely spent some significant time in a dark, silent room recovering)
