Each young rider is randomly chosen to participate in what has been called one of the most successful youth motorcycling experience events to date.

"The children had so much fun and we are so happy that we had the opportunity to showcase the KJSC in Canada. The KTM staff is hard at work getting prepared for the 2005 KJSC season, and we can't wait until January eighth."

Christy LaCurelle, KJSC Coordinator added, "We are so excited to be back out on the track with the kids. It's such a great feeling to successfully help the children live out their dream of being a professional Supercross athlete for a day. We'll see you out there!"
