Revy Riders’ Holly Colwell wins Panorama Hare Scramble dirt bike race

Revelstoke women shine at Panorama Hare Scramble dirt bike race.

Revelstoke's Holly Colwell stands on top of the podium after winning a dirt bike race in Panorama last weekend.

By Eve Northmore, Revy Riders

It turns out our Revy Riders Dirtbike Club has been an awesome training ground for riders. The first annual Panorama Hare Scramble last weekend had a great showing with local Holly Colwell taking first place in advanced women’s division and Tennille Barber taking fourth.

The first event Panorama has hosted in partnership with the Windermere Valley Dirtriders proved to be a popular one with more than 300 riders from across Alberta and B.C. travelling to take part. Riders battled it out on the ski hill throughout the day on a course that featured a mix of enduro, cross country and single track trails spanning across, up and down the ski hill.

As one of the club’s strongest female riders, it is no surprise that this is not the first podium event this season for Holly Colwell who also took second at the well known Kamloops Big Kahuna race in the spring.

The ladies rides for all abilities are Wednesdays at the Revy Riders Track on Westside Rd at 6:00pm. For more info or to stay up to date check out www.revyriders.com.
