Poley Thanks

Velo NB and the Kings County Wheelers would like to thank all the enthusiastic riders and teams who participated in New Brunswick's first Canada Cup MTB event at Poley Mt. this past weekend. A special thanks goes to all those who travelled from locations all across Canada. The positive attitude and good humour demonstrated by the racers, teams and fans helped make the event a joyful occasion.

In NB speak, it was some good party. Let's do it again soon. Good luck, good riding and good times to all those participating in next week's Hardwood Hills event and the rest of the 1999 Canada Cup Series.

P.S. Thankyou to the training riders who pointed out my Sooby-doo's flying hubcap loss on one of the many dashes down the Poley access road. I finally figured out what you were trying to tell me and picked it up an the way back. Merci Beaucoups.
