A Few Pics from Friday Morning at Penticton AX
By Billy Rainford
I am currently typing from the lobby of the hotel right next door to the South Okanogan Events Centre where the racing is about to take place…literally. I can here the bikes revving right now. I headed over to catch some practice earlier. Here are a few shots:
This is actually the view from the balcony of my hotel room here in Penticton.
I just paid $.86 back in Ontario. I guess you pay for the view out here…
The pits here in Penticton. I wouldn’t say there are a ton of riders here, but there is definitely some talent!
Whose likeness will be on the 2016 posters?

I did NOT have arenacross experience at this age. Did you?
Not only did they have to cover the ice and build the track, all the glass had to be removed too. Sounds like a lot of work to me.
Hey, Austin Watling, do you have a name for that look you’re giving us?
OK, it’s time to find your seats. See you in here tonight!
