Revelstoke’s Skyller Archer has graduated to the Pro class in the Canadian Arenacross series.

Archer finished first overall in his class in the 2015 Canadian Arenacross Championship this fall. Archer won the Intermediate MX3 class, and the Youth class in the eight-round series. With the results, he was promoted to Pro status for next year.

Two other Revelstoke motocross racers competed in the race series this fall. 15-year-old Seth Chevrier finished third overall in the Supermini class, sixth overall in the Junior MX3 class, and eighth in Junior MX2, where he was the youngest of 29 competitors.

Skyller’s brother Devin also competed, finishing fifth overall in the open beginner class.

The Future West Canadian Arenacross Championships is an eight-round series that takes place in Armstrong, Cloverdale and Chilliwack.
