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.
