This past weekend Stephen Exley and Silver Star Bike Park kicked off the Dunbar Cycles Summer Series at Silver Star Bike Park for the 2013 Provincial DH Champs.  This years track saw over 260 riders charge down Dag’s Downhill – a technical track  packed with rock gardens, tight trees, loose berms, and heckling fans!

“Stephen’s Exley’s Whip Off Comp was a great addition. The crowd was super supportive and they really added to the fun.  I liked competing against all age categories.  The race course was pretty beat up and it was hard to know where to be aggressive because it was so loose and dry, so there a fair bit of risk.  The lines kept changing during training, but I felt my race went well.” – U15 Provincial Champion, Finn Iles
