VIDEO: ‘Oldtimers’ head to Agassiz for annual motocross competition

The international competition saw dirt flying at the Agassiz track over the long weekend

Felt a little revved up over the weekend?

The B.C. Oldtimers Club brought some motorcycle action to the Agassiz Speedway on Aug. 3 to 4 for the 45th annual motocross competition in the community.

The club first began in January 1974 to offer a space for veteran dirt bikers to continue racing. Officially “old timers” are 40-years of age and older, with several riders in the B.C. club hitting 80 years of age or more.
