As summer drew to a close, organizers of the Alberta Triple Crown ATV Series bid farewell to the 2012 race season. The final race of the series was held in Taber, Alberta, on August 11, and approximately 67 racers showed up for the event. The winners of the season have been notified and plans have already been drawn up for next year’s program.
According to Teri Hansen, an organizer for the Alberta Triple Crown ATV Series, six races will be held in 2013 and the series may kick off in late April. Race locations have not yet been confirmed but the events will be spread out across northern, southern and central Alberta.
Currently, the Alberta Triple Crown ATV Series consists of three races, which take place throughout the summer. There are 15 separate classes for each race and each class runs two 15- to 18-minute motos. The winners are chosen at the end of the season based upon their overall points. The series is sanctioned by the Canadian Motosport Racing Corporation (CMRC) and riders must obtain a CMRC licence before they can compete, but Hansen said the series is open to everyone, including non-Albertans. It is open to all ages as well.
“We have had riders from the age of three to 52,” said Hansen, later adding, “We go right from the pro to the little guys. This year, we even had battery-operated machines for the little guys.”
