Tree Hugger takes off this Sunday

Season finale at Bombi

  • Sep. 29, 2011 12:00 p.m.

It was all thrills and chills at the Cones and Corners Motocross Race Day for Kids on Sunday.

Closing out the season for the West Kootenay Recreational Dirtbbike and ATV Society is this Sunday’s TreeHugger – the annual harescramble course held at our Bombi Summit facility.

The course is held on singletrack and double track trails through the forest on our land tenure. The race is an annual event and included in the PNWMA race calendar.

The PNWMA is a collection of 20 clubs throughout B.C. and Washington that holds a points series race calender. We typically have 100 plus riders coming from B.C. and Alberta to compete in this event.

Race categories include Amateur racers to Pro racers, all riders complete the same course, however, Pro riders compete for three hours while amateur racers will be two hours.

The race is locally hosted by West Kootenay Dirtbike and ATV society, a non-profit group that encourages the responsible use of land in support of this family oriented sport and encourages  participants of all ages.

WKRDAS has a motocross facility located near the top of the Bombi summit. Turn on Beavervale Creek Forest Service Road. It is located approx four km from the Salmo side of the Bombi Pass (Hwy 3) on the right hand side of the road. The track is groomed and watered.
