One way I enjoy some time with my family is at the Smithers Dirt Bike track, and I'm always pleased to see many other families doing the same. I love how this track is suitable for all skill levels; though usable by beginners, just adding some speed makes the track a challenge. I like to time myself, then try beat my last lap time by accelerating harder. With many sharp corners and jumps, I always leave the track feeling like I had a good workout. I love to dig my tires into the dirt, but when I get tired I sit on the viewing bleachers to watch the local talent. Smithers also holds CMRC (Canadian Motocross Racing Corporation) races; the next one will be July 28th and 29th. People come from all over to participate and watch these races, and I'll be there racing as Alpine Alice. I am also volunteering my time to make sure everyone has a fun and safe experience.
