Dickson, McGeragle win final Revelstoke downhill race and overall titles

Stu Dickson and Theresa McGeragle were the overall winners in the Revelstoke Downhill Toonie Race Series.

Stu Dickson and Theresa McGeragle were winners of the Downhill Toonie Race series, with each of them taking the final race of the year on Frisby downhill trail on Sunday.

The youngster Dickson won three of four races this year and finished second in the other one to win the men’s series with a total of 760 points. Nathan Jecks, who finished runner-up to Dickson in the last three races, came in second with 575 points. Callum McLeary rounded out the top three with 545 points.

On the women’s side, McGeragle won with 685 points thanks to two victories and second and fourth place finishes. Danielle Backman finished second with 550 points and Canadian downhill champion Casey Brown finished third after winning both races she showed up for.

Conditions for the final race of the season – the Frisby Frigid Fingers – were less than ideal, with pouring rain making for muddy and slippery conditions down the already challenging trail on Sunday.

The conditions also impacted the turnout, with only 17 racers coming out, down from an average of 30 competitors in the first three races of the downhill series.

In the end, Dickson’s time of 8:12.50 proved victorious, with Jecks finished 8.19 seconds back and McLeary ending up third in a time of 8:27.14.

On the women’s side, McGeragle finished in 10:44.96, with Backman only 3.53 behind her. Rianne Mariash was third in a time of 12:46.15.

The race series was presented by the Revelstoke Cycling Association and Flowt Bikes.
