2015 CMA awards headed to Alberta

Congratulations to all of the 2015 Annual Award winners but an extra high five to Second Gear Club members Shane Cuthbertson and Alex Baumann.

FULVIO CALLIMACI SUPPORTERS AWARD (one time award to a person or group who has
supported or promoted the CMA and motorcycling in an exceptional way)  -
Shane Cuthbertson of Airdrie, Alberta
Shane is a Pro CMA competitor, Second Gear Club youth organizer and volunteer, an unlikely
combination. Even when competing at the highest level of cross country racing, Shane and his
family have always found time to support their local club and its events.
He is an example of expertise that the younger Pro's aspire to emulate and an exceptional
teacher and mentor for the young people in the youth programme.

(donated by the Matthews family and awarded to the current rider who demonstrates the qualities of good sportsmanship)
Alex Baumann of Thorsby, Alberta
Alex hails from Switzerland where he was a sidecar motocrosser but here in Canada, he has
competed in Hare Scrambles, Cross Country and Ice Racing.
He loves everything to do with motorcycling and competition but has more than once sacrificed a
position to help a fellow rider on the course.
Whenever organizers are waiting for the last riders to come in, they always look to see if Alex has
checked in yet. If not, they know he is out helping some novice rider back to the pits. He is always
the first one to volunteer, never misses an event, shows up with a smile and leaves with one. A
credit to his club and to motorcycling.


Congratulations to you both for the Second Gear Club!
