Historic Moment in Canadian Motorcycle Competition

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - The Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) today announced the formation of the MCC Competition Working Group to coordinate and expand motorcycle racing in Canada. The MCC, World Enduro Canada (WEC), the Canadian Motosport Racing Club (CMRC) and Parts Canada Superbike Championship (produced by Professional Motorsports Productions (PMP), as founding members agree that the formation of this working group will put Canada's competition racing on the map as a force to be reckoned with in the international racing scene.

"This is one of the most significant developments on the Canadian motorcycling scene in 25-years" says MCC President Peter Jacobs. "For years the Canadian Competition scene has been fragmented, now through this MCC working group, riders, promotional partners and industry will come together to offer events that meet the highest standards of operation and sanctioning and present fair and expanding opportunities for our riders to compete with the best."

"The recognition these various disciplines, series and riders will now receive at the national and international levels is long overdue and will allow Canadian motorcycling to be deservedly showcased worldwide," added Mark Stallybrass, President of CMRC, Canada's leading operator of competitive motocross, dirt track, SuperMoto, Cross Country, ATV and Ice racing.

"When it comes to talent, Canada's motorcycle racers are second to none," said Colin Fraser of PMP, organizer of the national road racing series for Parts Canada Superbike Championships. "By joining forces, we are creating a win-win opportunity for the individuals who choose competitive racing in Canada and at an international level."

Lawrence Hacking, one of the principals of World Enduro Canada comments that, "Canadian off road racers deserve recognition. Our FIM sanctioned WEC events have demonstrated the concept to everyone involved in the sport: our riders now know that they can indeed compete at the highest level on an international stage. The formation of the competition council will help carry this momentum to both a National Enduro and Cross Country Series."

The MCC, is the not-for-profit national advocacy organization that champions motorcycling interests throughout Canada, established in 2004, it is comprised of national, provincial and territorial organizations, regional clubs, individual riders and industry representatives.

More riders means a stronger voice...so join the over 70,000 existing MCC members across Canada and help us shape the future of motorcycling in Canada!
