Race Report: B-Maaxx, Round 2 2015

July 27, 2015

The second edition of the B-Maaxx series took place at Ski Bromont this past weekend. A little more than 150 participants lined up at the start gate which was pointed towards the bottom half of The 7, a track packed with berms and high speed sections. To much of the excitement of the riders, the finish line was moved just after the infamous bridge double, allowing for style points to be thrown into the mix. Also, and as an added bonus for the crowds, a few World Cup level contenders were on course with the locals elevating the playing field. Teagan Molloy and her teamates, Connor Fearon and Andrew Crimmins, Marcelo Gutierrez, Luca Shaw, and Jackon Frew made the trip to Canada early before the Mont Saint Anne World Cup to get some laps in. Why not race a B-Maaxx while you're at it?

There are very few places on this track were riders have options for lines. Some opted to hop the rocks to the left while others trucked straight across.

Some of the fastest riders in the world joined us on course in the Pro category. Their presence helped create a fantastic ambiance and energy during the event. (Left to Right) Andrew Crimmins (Kona Factory Team), Connor Fearon (Kona Factory Team), Marcelo Gutierrez (Giant Factory Team), and Luca Shaw (SRAM/Troy Lee Design) all smashing corners and getting low on their way to the finish, or so they thought until...

Local boy Phil Ricard (Lama Cycles/NS Bikes) came through with an impressive time to edge out any threats from the pros, claiming the top step once all the dust had settled. Thumbs way up!
