Suburban Rush: Post Ride Recap

Post Race Re-cap

Race day has come and gone with so many fun stories to tell. A great team effort by all volunteers, sponsors and racers made the 7th instalment of Suburban RUSH an amazing success. The weather forecast stayed true and no rain fell, on the chilly April day in Port Moody.

Long-time SR friend Fiona Lim sang us Oh Canada and the race started from Suter Brook Village and went into the mountains. Eventually at over 400 meters the racers hit Checkpoint 3 on their bikes and started the descent of great single track trails. This is where skilled mountain bikers could make up some time! CP4 mystery challenge had the racers naming the highest mountains. At CP5 they were on foot again to collect 7 navigation markers in over 4km of forested trails – marker 4 was the toughest behind a tree stump! Back on their bikes they rode to the finish line for one more challenge at Rocky Point Park. First racers came in over a span of 2 ½ hours through the gates. As always there was a tight finish for first, and some hard decisions needed to be made by the referees.  Congratulations to all that finished the race!

While the adults were finishing their race the kids were as well. The inaugural Suburban RUSH Kids Race was a smashing success with so many proud parents, kids and cheers from the crowd.  I think we found some future Suburban RUSH champions!

Good friends, music, weather plus some friendly competition, between young and old made race day one to remember.  Well done everyone!
