Our 2nd annual RPR PeachDuro took place on August 13th. This year we saw a slight reduction in the number of racers who took part. That said, we still had over 80 racers hit the Three Blind Mice trail Network in an effort to claim the title and hoist the new, coveted Trophies made by James Spain here in Penticton. If you have not had the chance to see this beauty, stop by the shop and feast your eyes!
Race day brought perfect Okanagan summer temps and clear skies. The weather gods were truly on our side this year. The trails were exactly as one could expect in the Okanagan in August. Dry, dusty, fast and loose. Perfection.
This years event saw our E-bike category racer numbers more than double as we had 8 people take part. Did you know that the PeachDuro is the ONLY enduro style race event in B.C. that welcomes E-bikes to take part? Got an E-bike and want to race it for fun? Make sure you come join us for next years event!
Although we saw plenty of riders come from around B.C. and even Alberta, this years event was dominated by the locals. Knowing the trails and being used to riding in the hot, dry conditions really paid off. Congrats to all of this years winners!
Freedom Bike Shop would like to thank all of our incredible sponsors who helped to make this years RPR PeachDuro such a MASSIVE success.
