Phil Ricard wins the B-Maaxx Overall!
Last weekend marked the two last races of 2015 for most of the team LamaCycles / NS Bikes Downhill Team. Bromont hosted the last round of the B-Maaxx Cup as well as its first Enduro event. Phil, Liam, Lucas as well as Lama Cycles co-owner Justin Macknish were in attendance.
On Saturday, Lucas Rey-Sierro finished 6th in the Expert category, which made him finish 4th in the overall. In the Pro category, Liam finished a respectful 12th while Phil Ricard once again won the race with an impressive 2.5 seconds advance over second-place finisher Jonathan Lefrancois. After winning 4 out of 5 rounds this year, Phil certainly finished on the top step of the overall podium. Congratulations Phil!
On Sunday, all the boys switched to their small bike (read All-Mountain/Enduro) for the first ever Enduro race happening on Bromont's playground. The three stage-race proposed some classic segments as well as a brand new loamy track. Lucas Rey-Sierro was the first Lama to come down and eventually finished 8th.
In the Pro category, Liam Rourke stole the first half of the show by showing up on a 2001 XC bike and going through the three stages without any mechanical issue (well done Liam). On a more serious note, Justin Macknish finished right outside the top 5 in all three stages end eventually finished 6th. As for Phil Ricard, a top three in all stages enabled him to win the race, another sign that he's Quebec's top contender when it comes to gravity racing. What a great end to the 2015 season!
While most of our riders will slowly start their off-season training, Lucas will head down to Platekill, NY for the ESC Finals happening next weekend. We'll keep you posted on his results.
