Riders braved the Mount Fernie Provincial Park’s Dem Bones trail during the Dem Bones 2Knee ride last Tuesday.

The friendly race, hosted by the Fernie Mountain Biking Club (FMBC) and sponsored by Straightline, drew a large crowd, with mountain bikers racing down the steep terrain.

“I think it’s a great event,” participant Megan Kelly said.

“It gets a bunch of people in the community together. It’s just two bucks and we all just have fun.”

Each participant paid $2 to participate in the race, that money going towards a social gathering and a friendly beer afterwards.

Luke Stevens had the lowest time, completing the trail in five minutes and five seconds.

But the racers mentality is to simply have fun and enjoy the outdoors, Kelly said.

“We’re all winners,” she said.
