With beautiful weather on the mountain last Sunday, Sept. 8, racers could not resist coming to race one more time at Rim Nordic Bike Park.

The final of four races this summer, the best turnout of the season brought racers from as far away as Las Vegas and Santa Maria.

Custom-made medals by owner Kerry Brown were awarded for the day’s race, plus the overall standings for the series.

Racers had to race a minimum of two races, attend the series final, and count three of four events to earn points for the overall award. The overall also included teams, as well.

The Cyclery Bike Shop of La Mirada was the large team winners, with Bear Valley Bikes from Big Bear taking second place.

Locals placing were Garnet Vertican of Crestline, first in class and first overall; Richard Teachout, Skyforest, second in class, second overall; and Charlie Farrell of Lake Arrowhead, third in class, third overall.

There will be one more event in December: The California State Fat Bike Race on Dec. 8. Racers are hoping for a little snow, as that is why they own a fat bike.
