For those unaware, I will give you the Coles Notes version of the difference between DTX and ‘framer’ flat track bikes. A DTX machine is a motocross motorcycle that has been turned into a flat tracker via suspension changes and the addition of 19-inch wheels and tires, whereas a framer utilizes a purpose-built racing frame fitted with a motor, wheels, tank, etc.

Most fans (and likely most racers) are a little naïve as to what it takes to put on a race. The average fan shows up about half an hour before race time, while many racers get to the track just in time to sign in, unpack the trailer and head out for practice. Few, if any, give any thought to the dedicated group that has been there hours—and in some cases even days—before them.

Inside Motorcycles attended both celebrations and, while the similarities were many, the differences showed the uniqueness of each of these flourishing organizations on the Canadian race landscape.

A few of the more recent are the legendary Hayden brothers and Jason DiSalvo. The Canadian flat track scene has seen a reversal of this trend in the past month, however, as four former and current pro road racers have shown up to have some fun in the dirt.

The new riders of today have no idea how good they have it. With cellphones, laptops, texting, Facebook and so on, communication before, during and after the races is amazing compared to what it was like a couple of decades ago. I’m sure if youngsters Adrian St. Amand or Jordan Molnar could gather around the rocking chairs of grizzled veterans Chris Evans or John Parker, they would hear tales of how it was in the ‘old’ days.

Canada has Victoria Day, and the following weekend, the US has Memorial Day. One perk that the US has over us is that Memorial Day weekend also happens to coincide with the running of the legendary Springfield Mile at the fairgrounds in Springfield, IL. Since the majority of the flat trackers here in the great white north will never get the opportunity to run the mile, I talked to a couple of Canucks who recently did and got their take on what it is like to go 135 mph on a flat track bike.
