TVR 2021 Update

The Board of Directors had a conference call meeting on Wednesday, we are working diligently to prepare TVR for racing in compliance with government restrictions. As a membership based, recreational club the board agrees that we must follow government restrictions and regulations in order to maintain compliance and safety of our members. After lengthy talks with all track owners we have a full understanding of their limitations due to the government restrictions on social gatherings. At this time, we see the best-case scenario to be a late summer, early fall schedule as the earliest possibility. We feel that if we set tentative spring and summer dates they will end in cancellations. Again, as a membership-based club, the board of directors doesn’t want to spend funds foolishly. Since being a recreational club, the members are there for the social aspect as well as the awesome racing offered, we don’t want to be wasting everyone time. During the time we have until late summer, early fall, the board of directors are working to ensure total compliance with new social distancing protocol. We will also be listing a few track jobs that we will need to fill prior to racing. If your dream is to work for little money, big expectations, and little accolades one of these jobs might be perfect for you. Update your resume and keep your eyes on the Facebook page as we will post job descriptions soon. If you have any questions please contact Dave at davelee@trvrmx.com or Judy at judyburch@tvrmx.com


It is with great appreciation and gratitude that we thank Dan Verhoeven for the years of service to Thames Valley Riders. Dan has announced his desire to retire from TVR. As club president, Dan has led the club through many changes and has grown the club to what it is today; an awesome family oriented, recreational motocross club. Dan will be missed, and has set the bar high for his successor.
I would like to announce at this time that, Dave Lee the Vice President of TVR, will be stepping into the role of President for the 2021 race season. With Dave Lee as President, the board of directors has nominated Judy Burch to fill the position of Vice President.
The Board of Directors are eager to resume racing as soon as the Covid-19 restriction and regulations allow us to safely return. Stay safe, and rest assured the BOD are working diligently to be prepared to race.
