Race Report: Pipeline Summer Series Final Round
Everett Hoath takes the final and the series while his girlfriend barely survives a cluster bomb attack by the race organizer.
Sunday Sept 23rd marked the final round in the Pipeline Summer Series. The Series was a really fun, but low key club event that was a good mix of riding with good friends, joking around, and racing your face off.
The final round was a toss up between Provincial 4x #1 – Adam Muys, and Pipeline Indoor Series Winner – Everett Hoath. With double points on the line, the series winner was determined in the pro main between these two riders. The race was tight right from the drop of the gate. Both riders were sporting flat pedals and it showed as they moto whipped and transferred lines from pro to am lines in an attempt to block each other out. The race piled down the 3rd straight with both riders side by each going into the last turn. Everett went inside berm, while Adam sprinted the outside. The last straight was a sprint finish for the win and the series title. Everett crossed the line just ahead of Adam to take the series.
The other winners of the series are Judy Garren – Pro Women, and Aiden Macdonald – Junior Men. Way to go guys!
