Trevor McDonell won a hot and difficult 15th edition of the Blizzard Club Mountain Bike Championship, Sunday. His time for the 3 lap, 10.5 km Beatton Cactus long course circuit was 1:07:12 hours. Pat Ferris was second at 1:22:52. It was so tough a circuit that all others failed to finish.
Sam Keats won the lap ‘short course’ with a time of 57:59. Adam Currie was second at 1:01:47 and Ken Nix third at 1:04:50.
Connor McDonell won the kids course with 11:57 minutes. Daric McDonell was second at 14:35.
Conditions were hot and dry on the side hill where the race was held. Many riders were away at other events so the numbers were low. Trevor McDonell got an early lead in the very hilly long course event and rode away from the competition. This is Trevors’ second club mountain bike championship as he won it back in 2002.
