It wasn’t long ago that the only way for racers, sponsors, fans and your competition to see how a rider did over the season was to randomly search a number of club and organization web sites around North America. Even then it was difficult to gauge where a rider ranked, how many classes they went in, where they finished, how many parts, accessories, fuel, they used and what exposure they received for all their effort.
This edition of the racer news is dedicated to an 11 year old young lady from Laval, QC named Eve Brodeur. Eve competes in the Girls, Women and 85cc classes around the country. Highlights for Eve’s 2011 season include two podium finishes and a third place overall at this year’s Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Championship in the 9-11. Eve also finished first overall in the Women’s Junior class for the CMRC Competition’s West Provincial Championship and wrapped up her phenomenal season with a 10th overall in Supermini at this year’s Montreal Supercross.
To be at the top of the National Ranking System a rider has to compete and do well at events that have a high level of competition and they also have to race regularly. In Eve’s case though, there is nothing regular about her 2011 racing season! This young lady lined up at the gate an astonishing 70 times so far this season and it isn’t over yet. These seventy races weren’t just local either. Eve did the complete CMRC Competition Provincial Series, Loretta Lynn’s area and regional qualifiers and the Grand National; she traveled Walton, New York, Florida, and Ontario. Even that though is not unheard of for a top amateur racer. What separates Eve from the majority of the top amateur riders is that when she did show up at a race, she entered an incredible average of 4 classes at most events, and sometimes it was five. You can check out Eve’s full results by clicking here.
This brings me to the last point. Lining up at the gate seventy different times in one season offered Eve’s sponsors and supporters a great deal of exposure and they should be applauded for helping make it possible. The bad news is that it also means that there where a ton of companies that benefited from Eve’s commitment
and dedication that couldn’t have known how much each one actually benefited from the young motocross rider from Laval, QC. Every company’s product Eve and her family used from the time they left the house to the time they returned could have been a candidate for some kind of support. The National Ranking System helps expose the benefit of supporting racers to companies outside of the traditional industry sponsors that no other club, organization or website in North America has done. The National Ranking System was created to help you the racer and your family continue you dreams. Please help us continue making MXRanking a valuable tool for racers everywhere by telling your fellow riders, fans and competitors to about us. The more racers we have like Eve the more support our favorite sport will receive in the future!
See you at the races!
