The final race and final Skookum Youth Ride took place this past Tuesday. 16 kids lined up at the top of Flying Nun and had a rip against the clock. Afterwards they were treated to some burgers, lemonaide and draw prizes courtesy of Skookum.

Congrats to all the kids for a great season, it has been amazing to see the growth over the season and watch everyone get more confident and have more fun on the trails.

Thanks to all the kids for their great attitudes, the coaches for their encouragement and mentorship, and to the parents for keeping the bikes tip-top and helping herd kids.

Here is a link to all the results on Google Drive: Skookum Race Series Results.

Looking forward to next year, until then see you on the trails!
