Terrific weather and even better racing drew spectators out to watch competitors of all ages push their bikes to the limit in hopes of winning glory.
Fans braved the dust and the heat at the track on Oval Road this past Saturday and Sunday (April 28-29) and were rewarded for their tolerance with impressive performances from local riders.
Quesnel racers logged five first-place finishes, with Blake Neville, Adam Smith, Dayne Cutrell, Kassee Morrison and Jackson Nickolet all picking up victories on the weekend.
Denise Smith, Quesnel Motocross Association’s secretary, says the event as a whole was great.
“Everyone had fun,” she says.
“It showed what MX is: people from all over coming together to share their passion for a sport.”
Riders from all over the province showed up, as well as some from the Peace Motocross Association, who race in Northern B.C. and Alberta.
