CONGRATULATIONS DAVE RHODES
It’s a huge round of applause to Dave Rhodes as in late November 2018 he was inducted into The Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame, which was founded in 2006. Since then more than 130 distinguished motorcyclists and organisations have been inducted into The Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame, which is a non–profit association with charitable status governed by an independent board of volunteer directors from across Canada.
The annual Gala was held at the Burnaby Delta Hotel in Vancouver BC to recognise the Inductees for the Class of 2018. They were as follows: Peter Gagan, for his work in promoting Vintage Motorcycles; The Shanks Family, who were instrumental in forming the Victoria Motorcycle Club; Joseph and Vera Godsall, both long-time members of the Canadian Motorcycle Association and MX promoters; Al Perrett, Cross Country and ISDE competitor and a Motorcycle dealer for 50 years in British Columbia; Wally Klammer, Motorcycle enthusiast, race promoter and journalist; Dan Amor, one of the best ever Canadian Cross Country and ISDE competitors who sadly died at the age of 28; Dave Rhodes, trials enthusiast and long-time trials dealer and clerk of the course at the 1975 FIM Canadian World Round; Alan Dyck, Canadian Motocross Champion, team manager and promoter; Rick Hobbs, race mechanic for many famous teams both in Canada and the USA; and Steve Crevier, one of the most successful Canadian road racers of all time and winner of numerous Championships.
At the Saturday evening presentation the room was filled with more than 300 people from the Canadian motorcycle world.
