On Sunday July 29th, Royal Mountain Ski Area will host it's final CNYMRA (Central New York Motocross Racing Association) of 2018. The first two double headers brought lots of exciting bar to bar racing action. The Saturday of Memorial Day weekend brought Sunshine and clear skis and the Sunday brought us rain and muddy bogs.

Moving on to July 4th weekend, riders returned for another weekend of fun in the sun; however, Mother Nature played her role in making the day quite warm. Heat and humidity would plague the atmosphere and make conditions extremely uncomfortable for riders but they toughed it out and we saw some awesome racing in many of the classes across the board.

After weeks of rain, riders return to Royal Mountain Ski Area for one more shot at the hill. Some riders coming to redeem themselves; others coming to prove themselves.
