English, Bernier win fourth Wednesday night bike race

After a short mid season break Wednesday Night Racing presented by Arrow Helicopters returned with the fourth race of the season this past week.

After a short mid season break Wednesday Night Racing presented by Arrow Helicopters returned with the fourth race of the season this past week.

The unsettled weather scared some riders away but the rain held off long enough to get the race in. The 25 racers got plenty wet and muddy. The course had some tough climbs and I am sure plenty of racers were cursing course designer Bart Jarmula as they struggled up the View trail for the second time. Hopefully the descent down Buff Enuff made up for it.

The men’s race saw Lee English return to the top spot on the podium as he barely held off Brendan MacIntosh by one second at the line. Don Robertson finished third. Sixteen-year-old Dominic Unterberger was fourth just a minute back.

Melanie Bernier continued her domination of the women’s field with her fourth straight win. Laura Dyer was second and Atsuko Knight made it onto the podium in third.

Thanks again to our sponsors for the awesome draw prizes.

The fifth race of the season is on August 3rd. Only two more chances to race so make sure you come out and join us.
