Coal Hills BMX riders took to the track for some fun and competition under overcast skies on June 13.

Racing got underway with our little ones, the Striders, hitting the track for some hard-fought but fun times. There were only two of them but they showed the big kids they mean business by racing hard and fast.

Results are as follows:

4-year old Strider – 1st place was 3-year old Maxim Lefebvre, 2nd place was 4-year Noah Kerluck

26-30 Cruiser 1st place Andrew Templer, 2nd Aleasha “Duchess of Dirt” Wiebe, 3rd Paul Simard

5+ under Novice – 1st Brailyn Webster, 2nd Jeremy Purich, 3rd Arron Mottishaw, 4th Liam Pys, 5th Cohen Beaton

6 Novice – 1st Austin Salt, 2nd Brayden Dixon, 3rd Dane Kerluck, 4th Reid Watson, 5th Nathan Cox

10 Novice – 1st Eric Blamire, 2nd Cole Bernard, 3rd Arland Berry “Blaster”

7 Intermediate – 1st Sean Queenan, 2nd Justin Yaretz, 3rd Macklin Johnson, 4th Isaac Templer

9 Intermediate – 1st Evan Yaretz, 2nd Aiden Kearns, 3rd Hayley “The Hammer” Tufts, 4th Mathew Simard

12 Expert – 1st Yuriah Kaska, 2nd Aleasha “Duchess of Dirt” Wiebe, 3rd Hayden Fieret, 4th Tyson Tufts, 5th Nathan Simard.

If you and your family are looking for a fun way to spend a few hours together come out to Cumberland and the Coal Hills BMX track (right beside the park on main street). Visitors are always welcome and our volunteers will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the exciting sport of BMX racing.

Monday nights are gate practise and riders clinic under the tutelage of our older riders; anyone can participate. Racing takes place Thursday nights; once school goes back it runs Saturday mornings.

We offer a one free race membership for all new riders so they can see what its like to be on the track with other kids. Ages for BMXing is unlimited, from youngest rider age two to oldest in their 30s at our track.

It is truly a family sport. I have witnessed three generations out on the track: grandpa in his 70s with son and grandson racing. If you decide on a full membership it entitles you to race all over North America and on the Island in Victoria, Nanaimo, Qualicum Beach and Cumberland.

Riders accumulate local points all season and are rewarded at the end of the season awards banquet.

The track has been running now for 15 years and is open to the public 24/7 except on race day and practise night. More info is available on our web page www.coalhills.com or on Facebook at CoalHills BMX and also by phone 250-338-3892 Mike or 250-400-1816 Tony.
