Phat Wednesday - July 31st & Enduro Results
2 races last week!
PHAT WEDNESDAY Race #7 - July 31st Results presented by Bud Light
We started off with the 2nd to last Phat Wednesday presented by Bud Light. This is the last race before Crankworx and in an effort to give those locals racing at Crankworx a “home court advantage” we increased the difficulty and raced on Joyride to the Canadian Open. (the Canadian Open track will be used in Crankworx).
Chris Kovarik was once again on top of the Podium with the fastest time of the night of 2:09.07. Claire Buchar stayed in her usual spot as the leader of the Open Female Category with a time of 2:41.41. Adam Dagg made made his first appearance on the top of the podium in the Master Male category at 2:35.13 and Bowen Irvine was our 1st place Junior Male at 2:38.13.
All the fun was wrapped up with a thunderstorm on the GLC patio and some cold Bud Lights along with draw prizes thanks to our sponsors.
