2016 Salmon Arm Secondary Enduro MTB Race – Rubberhead

May 5, 2016.  Today was the SAS Enduro MTB race.  A couple of Kamloops racers from Valleyview High School joined our team for the enduro.  The enduro had 2 downhill sections that were timed.  The uphill sections are not timed.  The times were combined for the overall results.  Our SAS riders didn’t disappoint with Seth VanVarseveld posting the overall fastest time.  Valleyview High’s riders showed us they know a thing or two about Enduro racing – both of them posted the fastest times in their categories.

One more race in a couple of weeks at South Canoe and then it’s off to the BC high school provincials in Coquitlam, BC.  SAS riders will be hoping to claim the top spot again for BC.

Race results from today posted below.

President’s Report – 2015

2015 was a great summer to be a mountain biker in the Shuswap. Our trails were in fine shape due to little rain and the work of many dedicated volunteers and trail maintenance crew from the Trail Alliance. I hope you all agree that it has been great to ride well maintained trails. Thanks to funding from Singletrack Six and revenue from the Annual Shuswap Cycling Society (SCS) bike swap at the Salty Street Fest, Shuswap Cross – Cyclocross Race, map sales, and various fundraising activities the SCS is off to a fine start for 2016.
