As a USAian, judging from what I've heard from the Canadians, just tell them you're racing, and tell them where you're racing. That's all that seemed to be required besides the ID/birthcertificate/Passport (whichever is required now, I forget).

I'll ask next weekend and let you know for sure (if I can remember).

Stop at the Canada Customs office at the border BEFORE you go to US customs to cross. Inform the customs agent you are taking a dirtbike across and want to make sure you have no issues on return. They can fill out a form and register the VIN #, you can pretty much do this with anything that has a serial # like electronics, camera's etc if you are concerned about the return trip. When we go down to race we don't bother and have never had an issue but better safe than sorry.
