Frisby Results and Overall DH Standings

A small but hardy group of racers and volunteers turned up for the annual Frigid Fingers DH Toonie race presented by Flowt Bikes and Skis. The rain let up before and after the timed runs, but the weather decided it had been too kind the last couple of years, and racers were treated to a cold, wet ride down, with many off the bike experiences reported but the smiles were none the smaller for it, everyone made it down in one piece, and many hot dogs were still roasted over a bonfire in celebration. A timing malfunction meant that the day’s results and the series overall could not be calculated on the day, but they can be viewed in full below.

Megan Rose was the only […]

Final Toonie DH Race – Frisby Frigid Fingers

The time is approaching for the finale! The 5th and final round of the Revelstoke Cycling Association Downhill Toonie series presented by Flowt Bikes is next Sunday, Oct 16th. This of course is the annual Frigid Fingers Frisbee DH race. After the race there will be awards and draw prizes for racers and volunteers (including the return of Stoke Roasted coffee as a draw prize). The series overall cash prizes will be awarded, and there will be a bonfire and weenie roast. 

But first, we must race! The course on Frisbee presents a unique challenge, if you go super fast at the top, will you be too tired to go fast at the bottom? Does slow and steady win the race? You might have a slip […]

Falling on Boulder!

Riders – please be aware!

Falling will begin next Tuesday Oct 11 on the 5ha fir bark beetle patch on Boulder.

Unfortunately there is another area of Fir Bark beetle attacked forest within Woodlot #0461 on Boulder.  Stella-Jones will be salvage harvesting this area this fall to limit the spread of the Fir Bark beetle.  It is estimated that harvesting will occur between Oct 15 and Nov 15, however, a more concrete start date will be determined closer to the time.  The beetle infested area is about 5ha and surrounds the lower 800m section of the “Bike Club” trail.  The lower section of the “Bike Club” trail will be closed during this time and until it has been appropriately rehabilitated.  Stella-Jones has discussed the […]

Rednecks Toonie Results

A small group of racers turned up for a beautiful day on Boulder Mountain for round 4 of the Revelstoke Cycling Association Downhill Toonie Series sponsored by Flowt Bikes. This round was raced on Redneck’s Revenge, which despite very little pedalling leaves most riders breathing hard (but still smiling) at the finish. Nathan Jecks made it all look easy though, taking the win by over 25 seconds, and increasing his lead in the overall series standings. Due to no women racing this round, the overall rankings remain the same, with Jamie Marshall topping the list. Big shout out to Alex Karpinski who pulled into the parking lot from out of town, and decided to race on the spot having never even seen the trail. He […]
