DH Race Results #3

We were lucky again with the weather for the 3rd race in the 2016 RCA Downhill Toonie Race series presented by Flowt Bikes. After the first two, less technical races, 21 racers moved to the roots and steeps of Boondocker and Gravy Bacon.

Kate Devine also put in a strong time of 3:40:25 for a second place finish, moving to second overall in the standings, […]
