CVRG - AHRMA - Dublin, CA
|WCBR has been racing in vintage motocross since the beginning of the vintage movement. It was Dick Mann, along with Mike Green, J. McClinton, and Fred Mork, in Fred’s kitchen, that the (CVRG/AHRMA) MX rules you have today were first written in 1984. The first event to use these rules was Dick Mann’s 1st Annual Vintage Dirt Bike Rally (1984); this would be the start of vintage motocross and trails, as we know it today. (Mike Green would miss the 1st Annual event to race a BoTT AFM event at Riverside, only to have it be cancelled on race day!).Thinking back on it all… those involved with WCBRs motocross program have always raced “vintage” bikes, meaning; those with limited wheel travel and built prior to 1974.
It was Dick Mann’s event that sparked Eric Tucker into building a BSA C15 Scrambler for the 1985 event, finishing it the day before. It also sparked Rob Whitaker to donate his beloved Honda SL100 to WCBR; Mike Green would ride the SL100 and a B50 in the 2nd Annual Vintage Dirt Bike Rally. Thus the beginning of the WCBR-MX Team.
In addition to competing, both Mike Green and Eric Tucker would help operate the new CVRG MX series (in addition to the road racing), including establishing and operating Tech Inspection. Kay Mann would be in charge of scoring & registration, while Dick organized the MX schedule.
Since 1985, WCBR has won numerous CVRG & AHRMA Motocross races and Championships.
