FAQs

Entry processing (6)

As soon as the website is open to accept entries, sign up on-line. Watch for announcements. We recommend that you send entries as soon as possible. You do not have to wait until ANQs are started or completed. Date of entry can be a deciding factor in entry status.


Use your bank account, MasterCard/Visa/Amex etc cards or PayPal account for payment when you sign up on-line . Mailed payments must be accompanied by a cheque or money order payable in Canadian funds to be valid. Cheques post dated are not acceptable. Race entries will be processed when funds are received. NSF or post dated cheques and improper funds will result in the entry being denied until funds are received.


Confirmations will be emailed out following completion of regional qualifiers and compilation of national results. After that on an as received basis. This will include a complete participants information. The order of preference for first moto gate position, resolution of number conflicts and the order of standby entries are determined by qualifier position and date of entry. Your confirmation email letter should be available at sign in if there are any problems with registration, so hang on to it.


Yes. If you enter on-line through motoregistry.ca simply log into your account and cancel the entry. The PayPal transaction will be automatically reversed. Otherwise a written refund request must be received by Aug 1 with a copy of the original confirmation mailing received by mail/email Refunds less handling charges will be mailed out following the event. Riders that are denied entry into the GNC must submit written confirmation before the event starts.

This is a limited entry event with up to a full gate of 42 in each class. (Note exceptions above for MX2 Junior and MX3 GP Junior) Date received will be the deciding factor in determining order of entry after seeding qualifier positions. Pre-­entries for riders who rode their qualifiers must be received no later than June 19. Gate positions allocated to each region (quantity based on regional membership) will be assigned at that time. After June 19 qualified entries will be accepted on a first come basis for standby or open positions. After June 30 all entries will be accepted on a first come basis for standby or open positions.


When the gate is full for a given class, we maintain a list of riders who want to ride in that particular class. If there are cancellations or no-shows, the gate will be filled from the standby list in the order entries are ranked.

Many people have been asking about travel to Canada and back from the United States. The following is information that covers much more than is really required, but if they follow this, it’ll make the crossing easy, (in both directions).

i) They need a valid passport, that obviously means that it can’t be expired. A drivers license is no longer an acceptable border crossing document.

ii) If the child’s last name differs from the parent or guardian, they need to have a notarized document, or court decree that can be used as proof of guardianship. In circumstances such as these, the border agent will question the child directly. DO NOT interrupt the child or border agent! They are making a determination whether child trafficking may be occurring.

iii) Have vehicle registrations ready, including the trailer. If the trailer is registered in a different name to the driver, they will likely run a stolen plate check.

iv) Have a bill of sale, lien agreement or a receipt of sale for your bikes. They are tracking stolen bikes and quads going each way.

v) Do not resist the requirements of a border agent to search your vehicle and or trailer. No, they don’t need a warrant.

vi) Coming back into The United States of America; do not bring any food in with you. Only sealed items in original packaging and bottled water.

Because we have gone up and down so many times, we are rarely at the border patrol for much more than a minute or so. Once you clear successfully a few times, your past history is stored on the computer and you recharacterized as a lower threat.

Lately, the US Customs and Border Patrol has been much friendlier than I can ever remember. I think the technology is getting better.
