Beti Bike Bash Race Report

On Sunday, June 4, the SMBA race girls headed down to Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood to participate in the 2017 Beti Bike Bash.

We all really like how the race is so supportive of getting girls on bikes in a fun environment. Another highlight is definitely wearing glitter and tutus.

Overall, the team did really well. We had no crashes or mechanicals.

Results:

Ashley – 9th in beginner 15-18

Maddie – 4th in sport 15-18

Elliote – 5th in sport 15-18

Camille – 2nd in expert 15-18
