Recipients can be individuals or groups who have supported motorcycling and the CMA in an exceptional manner during the past year. They are chosen by the Board of Directors based on nominations from members.
Neil Carter of Burlington, Ontario, is the honouree for 2020.
Neil has been involved in the motorcycle trials community from his boyhood to the present. This past year, as in previous years, he has tirelessly worked with exceptional efficiency in maintaining observed motorcycle trials with the Canadian Motorcycle Association and the affiliated club, Amateur Trials Association.
He has especially gone to great lengths this year to ensure that the trials community had the opportunity to participate in observed trials in spite of the Covid 19 pandemic. He ensured that all competitors and organizers were Covid compliant which included but not limited to: online preregistration and payment; ensuring Covid 19 protocols and social distancing were followed at all five Amateur Trials Association events; and, online distribution of results and prizes.
Neil accomplished all of this and still had the time and energy to compete and reach his well-deserved 1st place finish in his class. The CMA Board of Directors is very pleased to congratulate Neil and award him the 2020 Fulvio Callimaci Memorial Supporters Award.
