CuthbertsonWay to go Shane!  So proud to have one of our many worthy Alberta riders make the list.  Shane is definitely one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. There is an absolute respect towards this man who is focused and has trained so hard for his many accomplishments.  Keep an eye out for him as he is making new waves in both endurocross and trials.

CMA Award of Merit Given to Siggi Pechout

Siggi could never be criticized for not speaking his mind and he has certainly done so as a staunch supporter of the CMA and his club, Second Gear, for many years. His energy and persistence has lead the club through a steady expansion of CMA organized activity including Cross Country, Hare Scrambles, Trials, and Ice Racing and we are sure there is more to come as he is always exploring new possibilities.
He is very active in the off road community in Alberta working to keep riding areas open, and has established strong relationships with all the partners involved in motorcycling; dealers, sponsors, participants and the Provincial Government.
Siggi is truly the backbone of our motorcycling fraternity in that province.
