About: Legends of Canadian Motocross

LEGENDS OF CANADIAN MOTOCROSS (LOCMX) is a project that came out of the need to record the history of Motocross in Canada. With each generation a little more information gets left behind. Before long some individuals that excelled to their highest potential will be forgotten.

LOCMX was put together by Bill Petro, one of Canada’s top photojournalists and motorcycle specialist. By matching legendary stories with pictures captured, he hopes the memory of the past legends live on.

 These photos bring the history of Canadian motocross to life for younger fans, while triggering memories of excitement, drama, and fierce competition for spectators and participants of the actual events.

 Although most of the LOCMX images were from Bill Petro’s photo archive, many more images captured by fellow photographers across Canada have been borrowed from the Canadian Motor Sport Archive (CMSA).

 It may be a while before the actual photo display is exhibited for a live audience, so for now we will try to bring you the pictures and information through this website.

Your support can go a long way to keeping this website growing with information.  Visit the store to see how you can help the Legends of Canadian Motocross can keep their stories alive for generations to come.
