Youth DH Race and Overall Results

Tuesday was the final night of the Skookum Youth Rides for 2018 and the last race of the series, the prestigious DH!

20 kids lined up at the top of Flying Nun and had a rip in all time conditions on a beautiful night. Ella Mills set the pace with a 3:31 that would sit pretty well on the strava board! Traeden, Marika, Aida, and Trent also posted sub 4 minute times for the older kids. They also showed great leadership in hanging around the finish line and cheering on the rest of the crew as the crossed. Keegan, Dreyson, Dane, Ryder, and Austin also posted some serious times, nice work fellas!

For the B group, Max Calkins posted a 4:27 for the top time. Reese, Jayda, Peyton, and Karis were all close behind with great times and props to them for making all of the races!

Group C our were our youngest shredders and Brantley took top spot there with a blistering 6:14. Ya Brantley! Brodie, Tye, Annabel and Nicola also tamed the nun so congrats to all of you.

Skookum Youth Ride Team Results

Beautiful evening and great turnout for the third race in the Skookum Youth Race Series. This one was the team event where kids partnered up and took turns completing as many laps as they could over 45min. Tremendous enthusiasm from all the kids cheering on their teammates and great effort all around as usual.

Looking forward to the last race of the season, the prestigious DH! Have a rip down Flying Nun and then stick around for a BBQ to celebrate a great season of riding.

Here are the results for the Team/Enduro race. They are divided into the various combos of rider categories and the loop length they rode: Category 1 were teams with riders in group A and B that rode the long and short loop. Category 2 were riders in Group A and C that rode the long and short loops, and Category 3 were the A and B riders that both rode the long loop. The first rider in the team name completed the odd numbered laps and the second rider did the even numbered laps.

Skookum Youth Race – XC Results

Another great night of mountain biking at Tuesday’s XC Race!

Kids were divided into categories and did a mass start loop starting at the party pit. The C category hit the Troll Bridge to Blizzard Hill, then half-way down PPT and back up the Climb Trail. The B category did the same loop but went up to the top of Banjoo first. The A category went even farther and added KC Connector, a short road climb, and Paranoia Right to the loop.

There were a few wrong turns and a couple small mechanicals, but all the racers demonstrated awesome effort and sportsmanship, helping others along the way. Great to see them all sprinting to the finish line!

Congrats to the stage winners Ella in category A, Reese in category B, and Nicole for category C!

Here are the full results:

Racer name Category Finish time Difference Place
Ella A 18:00.5 1
Trent A 20:10.3 2:9.8 2
Marika A 20:16.5 2:16.01 3
Aida A 20:43.3 2:42.8 4

Skookum Youth Ride – Poker Ride This Tuesday

Skookum Youth Rides are getting back into high gear.

This Tuesday, Sept 28th, will be the Youth Poker Ride. It is kind of like orienteering – kids are broken into groups and they use a map to find 5 cards hidden along the trails. The cards are used to make a poker hand at the end, prizes for top hands!

Also stay tuned for details on the Fall Youth Race Series, beginning September 4th.

See you on the Trails!
