Hey Motocross Enthusiasts

Remember my Facebook post from Tuesday evening??

I have been working on a challenge for all you motocross fanatics that might be at home during this time, or your kids at home that are running out of things to do or focus on. Maybe you are trying to do something educational but feel it needs a bit more passion?

I know this is a hard time for a lot of us, and I along with others across our great country have come together to see if we can help fill some of your time with something positive, fun, and slightly educational to challenge YOU with.

The challenge will be divided into three age groups, and to be submitted to your respective area, or region. Your region submissions will be graded using a rubric that will be provided to both you, your child or family member as well the amazing people taking in the submissions. The goal of the regions is to then choose the top submission from each of the age categories to submit to a national panel to then pick winners nationally.

This challenge will be at least one topic that will be discussed on the new weekly talk show called InsideX which was announced by Jetwerx earlier this week. The first episode will drop on April 8th at 8:00 PM EST, live on MavTV Canada / TwoWheel Tv app, and will continue each week on Wednesday.

The deadline for submissions into your perspective regions will be Monday, April 20th. We will allow 1 full week to then go through all submissions with the top submissions from each of the age categories to be submitted for the national panel. We will then allow at least a week to give to the panel grade and decide the national winners. We would set a tentative date of Wednesday, April 29th to announce the winners on InsideX

Prizing nationally will be announced before to April 20th

Thank you for participating, and I cannot wait to see the passion shine through your submissions. Much Love in Racing and Sport!
