The hills will be hum­ming with the buzz of mo­tocross this long week­end as the Drumheller Out­door Ve­hi­cle As­so­ci­a­tion hosts the DORVAMX Cham­pi­onship from July 30 to Au­gust 1.

The sixth and sev­enth races of the Al­berta Mo­tor­sports As­so­ci­a­tion Cham­pi­onship series will be played out Sunday and Mon­day at DORVA’s track af­ter a day of prac­tice Satur­day.

Or­ga­nizer Brad Peake said mo­tocross rac­ers from Al­berta, BC, and Saskatchewan will com­pete in the two com­pe­ti­tions and par­tic­i­pants will be itch­ing to hit the dirt af­ter a rainy cou­ple of weeks.

“We had a lot of guys come out this last week with the weather. The num­bers for the week­end are look­ing good,” said Peake.

He says the track will be closed this week as vol­un­teers pre­pare for the week­end, which has a favourable fore­cast.

Af­ter prac­tice Satur­day, July 30, some of the AMSA pro rid­ers will be putting on a race school. To qual­ify you need to sign in for the morn­ing prac­tice and a draw will be made at in­ter­mis­sion. The rid­ers will be grouped with oth­ers in their re­spec­tive classes.

Prac­tice starts 9:30 am Satur­day and 8:00 am Sunday and Mon­day, with races be­gin­ning those days at 9:00 am.
