Thank you to our amazing Okanagan Chapter and volunteers for another amazing year of mountain biking, racing, dust, fundraising and FUN!

Of course, just flying into the Okanagan Valley in BC is amazing, not to mention the fun that is about to be had!

As soon as we arrived, we were put to work to prepare the trails, organize the race packages and help out in any way we could.

Setting up the kids track was hot, back-breaking work (for those of us without muscles!) but it was so fun to see the little racers start to test their skills on the mountain!

Lots of award categories meant lots of the racers from all ages and skills were able to get a token and reminder of the great day.

Unfortunately there were a few bumps, cuts and bruises but except for one major wipeout, most left the medical tent with dry eyes and new Band-Aid’s!

A little birthday party and celebration was held after and concluded a wonderful weekend of fun and giving to those in Gindo, Ethiopia who are truly in need. Thanks to everyone for your support and we’ll see you next year!!
