Pok-O Team Captures Bike Race

BikeRace3Pok-O-MacCready’s mountain bike class turned into its mountain bike team Sunday as a group of campers traveled to Ausable Chasm to take part Chasm Riders MTB Series.

Pok-O entered two teams into the World Famous Three Hour Spectacular of the World– one older team comprised of Advanced Section campers, and staff members, and an Intermediate-Senior team.  The younger group (Matthew S, Lucien, Andrew B, Alex B, Max, Dan, Miles) took first place in the event, with a narrow victory over camp hockey sponsor Team Cookie.

“I think it’s one of the funnest things I’ve done this summer,” said Matthew S. “You had to come in with a good attitude because the race was hard, and even if you were good, if you didn’t try you wouldn’t do well.”

Matthew, and all the riders were impressed by both the course and the competition. “The trails had ups, and downs, and straights and hooks.”

Added Alex B, “It was a unique experience.  The course presented a lot of challenges.  It’s fun going on hikes but this was different because we got to ride the bikes and do it with other people (not from camp)”
