The sun was warm, the beach was packed and we were fast in practice. We drew the second last qualifying spot and had our plan set. That is about the same time the wind picked up. Tents, chairs, coolers and small animals (not really) went flying by. Then the rain came and put a damper on everyone. Maybe next time. See you at Flamboro, rain or shine.

After weeks of rain and another off weekend we went back to our roots. Racing motocross at the Trans Canada Nationals. I know race car drivers are not supposed to be able to ride on two wheels, let alone win. With the support of apprentice search we tested well and set some very good lap times. A holeshot and the lead of every lap. The toughest competition was my brother Tom Norris. He was jumping the huge double (I was chicken) and gaining ground on me pretty fast. I made it past the lapped riders better and held on for the win. Yeah I know it was the Heritage class, but a win is a win. See you at the beach for 50 laps. I hope I remember to keep it out of the dirt.
