Grand Prix de Mud - this weekend in Campbellville, ON!

@LHOverland • @themohawkinn • Grand Prix de Mud Media Release - June 23, 2015 - Final preparations for Saturday’s first ever Grand Prix de Mud, sponsored by Husqvarna Canada, are nearing completion. Stakes have been pounded into the soft turf of the Mohawk Inn lawn, snow fencing rolled out and trophies, t-shirts and caps have been delivered.

The GPdM volunteer crew has made Herculean efforts to re-create an old school motorcycle event down to the smallest detail.

The news of the special guest is now confirmed: Eight–time AMA National Enduro Champion Dick Burleson will be the guest of honour. Dick is a long time Husqvarna rider who holds eight consecutive US national titles! Alongside Dick, many other luminaries in the off-road racing world will attend the event in order to celebrate Canada’s rich history in the motocross, scrambles, trials and enduro competition realm.

One of the most notable Canadian competitors who will be at the GPdM is former World Champion hill climber John Williams. John will also have his one-off, hand-built hill climb bike on display.

One can expect ISDT Gold Medal winner Helmut Classen to not only ride in the various events but display many of his beautiful and rare collector motorcycles.

The Legends of Canadian Motocross: LOCMX (website: www.locmx.com) is an initiative celebrating the past glory of Canadian motocross. LOCMX is founded by renowned photographer Bill Petro. Bill has shot photos of the stars of Canadian motorcycle racing since 1972. His photographs and photo presentation will be one of the highlights of the GPdM.

Many past champions will be attending the GPdM either as a spectator or a racer. Former Ontario provincial motocross champion Glen Nicholson is scheduled to make an appearance as well as past 125cc national motocross champion Doug Hoover. Former Kawasaki factory rider Jay Kimber will also be in attendance.

Other racers who have indicated they will attend include Jorma Rautanien, Pat Bastedo, Jim Bryne, Jeff Sutherland and many others.

The efforts of the Sasquatch Vintage Racing crew and the Southwestern Ontario Vintage Trials Association have been instrumental in realizing this significant event. Various riding events will include a grass track scrambles, trials, and a cross country race featuring vintage and modern bikes in all disciplines.

The rider’s meeting starts at 9:45 am. Sign-up opens at 8:00 am. Spectators are admitted free of charge.

There are many prizes to be won including the grand prize of a set of Mefo knobby tires donated by Motonation Canada.

42 winner’s plaques are up for grabs including some special achievement awards and the concours d’elegance awards for the many exotic off-road motorcycles that will be on display.

This is a unique opportunity to see and hear some of the most iconic & rare motorcycles of our time.
