***ATTENTION – IMPORTANT***
FISHER BRANCH WORK PARTY IS THIS WEEKEND SATURDAY JUNE 21ST & SUNDAY JUNE 22ND. Camping will be available for the weekend starting Friday night. We will be getting started in the morning on Saturday. If you or anyone you know can make it, please contact Richard Baril for more information. If you have a chainsaw, brush cutter or any other equipment that you feel would help cut trail feel free to bring it!
Never been to a work party before??? Not to worry, come on out!!! It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, learn the track to get the edge on your competition while putting in some work to help your club out! We can’t stress enough how important volunteerism is to the operation of our club! We had a great turn out for the Oaklake & Miniota work parties, and we look forward to seeing another great turnout at the Fisher Branch work party this weekend!
Coming from Winnipeg head North on provincial highway #7 to Arborg. From Arborg head west on provincial highway #68 until you hit Poplarfield. Then head North on provincial highway #17 to Fisher Branch. Track is located 2 miles south of Fisher Branch on PR #139 and 1-mile West off of highway #17 which is just south of the Fisher Branch golf course, MDR sign will be up on the highway!
NEXT WORK PARTY WILL BE IN MORDEN!!! STAY TUNED FOR THE DATE!!! There will probably be more than one work party throughout our summer break to get the track dialed in and give it a whole new look for this season! If you need any more information please contact Ryan Krause!
*** MINIOTA – DEVILS DROP POST RACE REPORT ***
Well folks, round #2 of the 2019 Manitoba Dirt Riders Wheat City Cycle Manitoba Cup is in the books!
We can’t thank our volunteers enough, especially our volunteer coordinator Lauraine Berard for streamlining all our volunteering, Paul Swiscoski & Marshall Askew for busting their butts and coordinating the work party to get the track prepped for the race and of course our race weekend sponsor The Pitts Paintball and ATV Park LTD for all their support and making this weekend possible!
We had a good turn out with 144 bikes for the Saturday fun race and 160 bikes for the Sunday points race! We battled a few injuries throughout the weekend but thanks to our medic sponsor Fouillard Steel Supplies Ltd., Gerry D and his crew kept us safe out there! We’d like to extend well wishes and a fast recovery to our Vice President Paul Swiscoski and Tanner Huotari!
We would like to thank GWB Auto Sales for supplying the water this weekend and keeping us hydrated as well as being our community meal sponsor!! Brent MacDonald did a killer job on and off the track this weekend, participating in the team race and preparing the pulled pork that melted in your mouth even though the smoker did almost catch on fire Friday night lol there was lots of variety at the community meal and more than enough food to go around for everyone including seconds thanks to everyone participating!! Keep up the fantastic work MDR community!!
Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate for us on Friday night and into Saturday morning, so we weren’t able to run the pro loop on Saturday. We did however end up having a team relay race on the sportsman loop which was awesome! Especially when #TeamKrause took the win, must have been the captains coaching lol Sunday’s weather turned out beautiful and made for a great day of racing!
Congratulations to all the riders that picked up hardware this weekend! Results will be up tonight, you can also sign up for email notification at the bottom of the results page to receive the latest results/points updates after every race! We look forward to seeing everyone at round #3 on July 6th & 7th at Fisher Branch Rocks N Logs!

*** COMMUNITY MEAL - IMPORTANT ***
A big thanks goes out to GWB Auto Sales for stepping up and not only being our Community meal sponsor and keeping our bellies full but our water sponsor keeping us hydrated for the 2019 season as well! For all you newcomers every Saturday night we have a community potluck. Thanks to GWB Auto Sales generosity MDR can provide the main course and non-alcoholic beverages! It is VERY IMPORTANT that you bring a side dish, salad or dessert equivalent to how many people are in your party so that there is enough food for everyone to enjoy. This has been a serious issue in past seasons, and we cannot stress this enough!!! Everyone do their part so we can continue to enjoy the community meal for seasons to come!
*** VOLUNTEERS – IMPORTANT ***
Yes, we need you!!! The entire MDR organization needs you!!! Please contact our volunteer coordinator Lauraine Berard for more information, we still have lots of spots to fill for the race season! Without adequate volunteer’s safety becomes a factor and the races can’t go on, so please do your part to help your club out!!!
MDR would also like to thank Fouillard Steel for stepping up as our medic sponsor for the 2019 season and keeping us safe out there!!
