Clyde River Motocross Track and Trails (CRMX) is a family-oriented, non-profit club committed to promoting the sport of motocross in our region of Nova Scotia and providing a healthy, family-oriented sport that appeals to a broad base of people and teaches great lessons of standing up to, and overcoming, adversity. CRMX is also a central part of our community, working with, and helping, other local organizations. We focus on family memberships, and providing a challenging, fun and safe environment for riders/members of all ages and skill levels so they may enjoy the sport of motocross with their families and friends.
CRMX was founded in 2007 by Arthur Smith of Barrington, Nova Scotia. Arthur Smith introduced the Nickerson family to the sport of motocross, for that, they are forever grateful. “Thank you Art!”
This year (2017) will mark the beginning of the first full-on, organized CRMX membership, and weekly pre-scheduled ride days. To add to the excitement, we will be holding our Season Opening Race on April 22! We look forward to seeing you there!
What Makes Motocross at CRMX such a great sport?
- It’s a highly active and physical sport with many health benefits
- The entire family can participate and share in the experience
- It supports the community - a win-win for everyone
Our number one goal in opening Clyde River Motocross (CRMX) to the public is to grow the sport of motocross in our local area. We want to bring recognition to the sport we love and the best way to do that is to get families involved and see for themselves the good times and benefits motocross can provide. It really starts with the children in our communities and our, “Learn to Ride Motocross Program”, the goal being to introduce kids at a very young age to the world of motocross. Nothing would make us happier than to see young people out on the track and trails with grins from ear-to-ear.
The CRMX facility is by definition a, “sand track.” Sand is arguably the most difficult type of soil to ride on. It is a momentum robber, and motocross is all about keeping your momentum. Track conditions are best from March to June, and September to November. CRMX is working hard to improve its watering system to make for better track conditions during the dry summer months. At present there are only a few trails at CRMX, but new trails will soon be under construction to challenge and thrill riders.
