The final two rounds of the Outlaw series took place at Scotch Creek, BC, on what could only be described as a wonderful fall weekend in the Shuswap. This event is an annual memorial to our lost buddies Adrian and Peter Brown. The competitors were there to enjoy the weekend, including the usual great sections on the loop, as well as the traditional, Saturday night cook-out of paella -- thanks to Ross and the helpers.

On the first day the weather was absolutely fantastic, with the sunshine and the coloured leaves adding to the exciting ride through the hills above Scotch Creek.

The laughter from the riders said it all -- they had a blast in all classes. As has become customary, "Mr Super Smooth" Brandon Wince took the Expert win on both days, although second-place rider Stan Bakgaard is about 20 years older, so kudoos to Stan for continuing to ride the most difficult class.

In the other classes, we saw a real battle between young 13-year upstart Kolten Morrisson, who has been winning everything over the past twelve months, and new-to-trials Shane Bridden riding the borrowed Outlaw TRS 250. In the end the younger lad won, but by only one point, which signals some great battles in the future.

The competition in all the other classes over the two days was close but was really fun, with every rider commenting on how much the enjoyed themselves. The Outlaw Series is now over for 2016, but plans are already underway for 2017. The first round next year will be at Ioco. BC
