The cycling event consisted of different race lengths in which riders could choose to participate. Each could choose between a 7.5, 25 or 60 km race.

In the 60 km Beatton Loop, Stephen Ferris emerged victorious through the tough and hilly race with a time of 1:53:30. Les Elliot placed second with a time of 1:59:20 and George Gamble finished in third place with a time of 2:03:39.

As the 60 km race proceeded and the riders took on the steep, windy and hilly road conditions, Stephen Ferris began to pull away from the pack with Les Elliot in pursuit. Both riders maintained their positions all the way to the finish line.

In the 25 km race, Pieter de Bruyn came in first with a time of 48:12 min. Dean Lowry placed second with a time of 48:45 and Quentin Dupreez came in third at 50:53.

On this coming Sunday, there will be a 45 km road race taking place from the Kal-Tire in Fort St. John to the Montney store and back. There will also be a 25 km race for other participants.


For more information or to participate in either of the races, contact Pat from Ferris Fast Cycles at 250-785-3711.
