Race Report: Quebec Cup Round 4 Vallée-du-Parc30 septembre
The last race of the season was upon us and the Lamas were more than ready for the task at hand. Phil Ricard had a chance at the Elite Men's series overall and Lucas Rey-Sierro was in the same predicament for U17. Our Junior Expert rider, Liam Rourke, was looking to end on a high note as he struggled a few times this season to nail the power down.
Phil Ricard was easily one of the top contenders over the weekend pinning every section and fine-tuning his lines. A mechanical in finals left him with a close second place but the times and points were close enough to bump him into first place overall in the series! Congratulations buddy!
Much the same success was experienced by Lucas. "Rey-Rey" was fastest down the hill on Sunday and that placed him on top of the U17/Cadets for the series! The youngster has a huge career ahead of him. Exciting things to come next year as he moves up joining the Juniors.
Bad luck struck Liam during his finals, going over the bars in the last section before the rock drop. That corner had been giving many riders trouble and finally took a bite out of his front wheel. Keep your head up, buddy! You'll get them in the spring.
