Race Report: B-Maaxx Round 1 2015

June 23, 2015

The first of five B-Maaxx series rounds was held last weekend in Bromont on what ended up being a gorgeous day at the hill. The riders were greeted with a freshly refurbished Lower 51 as their chosen race course. The track featured a number of new gap jumps and mulchy wooded sections to keep the racing interesting. Chicken lines were also present, reinforcing the 'introduction to racing' aspect of the event.

Some really tight racing went down in the Pro class and the short course leaves no margin for error. Hugo Langevin (Cycles Performance) took the win on Saturday with Phil Ricard (Lama Cycles) and Samuel Thibault (Banshee/Major Cycles) biting at his heels in second and third.
