Bart Jarmula and Melanie Bernier took top spots in the first 2012 Arrow Helicopters Twoonie Mountain Bike Race on Wednesday at Mt. Macpherson.
Jarmula fended off a tough challenge from Tim Auger and Don Robertson, who finished 23 and 34 seconds back of Jarmula’s winning time of 48:05.
Bernier ran away with the women’s race, finishing in 50:22. Sarah Newton and Jamie Kraus took the other podium spots.
The race saw the cyclists pedal down the road, up the Yew R Here trail, down Hemlock Grove, back along the road, back up Yew Are Here, and down Quarry trail – twice.
