he Rockstar Energy Motocross Nationals, Canada's largest powersports series, is set to open at the Wastelands in Nanaimo on May 31, 2014.


This year, Chilliwack-born rider Danny Mathe will be competing.

Having been given his first dirt bike as a Christmas present in 2000, Mathe hasn't stopped riding since.

He's won several championships as he worked his way up from the 50cc to the Junior class, but it wasn't until he turned 13 that he began to take his training seriously. At the age of 16, he went intermediate and has been competing in the pro national rounds for the past two years.

After a string of bad luck and crashes, Mathe earned national number 59 and is looking forward to kicking off the season with a bang and some top 10 finishes.
