“This will be a cool addition for the WMX series, these Ladies will be ‘The Show’ come Saturday for their Series Finale of the West Coast. On top of that, all WMX riders can go Coast to Coast and race every round of the Series, just not collecting points on their opposite region.” – Kyle Thompson, Jetwerx.
“ I’m excited with what they have come up with for the 2019 season. Thanks to Jetwerx, the series keeps getting better and bigger every year and I can’t wait to see what this year will bring!” – 4 time Champion Eve Brodeur
“We are very excited for the 2019 season. The WMX is always a nice addition of the Rockstar Triple crown Series and we are thankful for the opportunities they are giving the women’s racers.” – Eastern WMX Ambassador Sylvain Brodeur
“The changes made for 2019 are in my opinion a big step in the right direction for our series. We’ve gone from having to band together to organize things ourselves, to have a group of promoters that want to see our series grow and do all of the grunt work for us. Streamlining our series and following stricter guidelines will gain us more exposure and support moving forward. Although we aren’t necessarily racing for a team pay cheque, signing up for a National is the next level that up and coming ladies should look forward to, and current WMX riders should be proud of.” – Western WMX Ambassador Dominique Daffe
“This is a thrilling time for WMX because the core group doing what’s best for the women willing to chase a series and expand their goals. Breaking grassroots into national is never easy but the Jetwerx crew along with the ambassadors above have put together an attractive 2019 with so many options for all women racers.” – Ryan Gauld, MRC
