More than 200 people came out to rev their engines and hit the track and trails for the third annual Papa John Classic, hosted by the Revy Riders last weekend.

The two-day event saw 193 people register for Saturday’s poker ride, which was followed by a party at Glacier House Resort.

On Sunday, the club hosted a race around the motocross track, endurocross track and a new loop trail. Local Seth Chevrier won the junior race, while Ian McKill from Vernon won the A class. Ryan Montgomery was the top local, finishing fourth.

Revy Riders president Chris Pawlitsky was ecstatic about the success of the weekend, saying it might be the biggest dirt bike event in Western Canada.
