Orangeville indoor series final weekend

11 12 2009

I’ve been hitting the Orangeville indoor race series the past few weekends and I have to say, if you’re in the Orangeville, Ontario area this weekend you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Both BMX and MTB riders can race and the mood is  laidback with a big emphasis on  having a good time.  Hardly anyone runs clips and there’s a lot of good-natured ribbing and shit-talking.

I think what makes this race series so much fun is the variety of riders that come out for it…trail riders, serious racers, MTBers, old school and new school.  It’s just people who like riding their bikes.

Hats of to Brent “Smitty” Smith (the guy in the picture with the red hoodie) who, with the help of a lot of volunteers, put this race series together and gave Southern Ontario riders somewhere to get their riding fix during the cold weather.*

*We’re all rocking the hoodies in this picture because the facility isn’t heated…dressing in layers is the rule of the day in O’ville.
