Thirty one riders came out in spring-like conditions to race the muddy course at the Dieppe Mud Cross in the Rotary Park, St. Anselme. Highlights of the day included: the three young local riders, Julien Rousell, Marc Evers and Frederic Landry who all came out to ride. and the riders who came from as far away as Halifax to race.

Series leader Stuart Wight was there to defend his lead despite having had four wisdom teeth removed on Friday - he was seen sporting a very swollen face and was overhead to have said "Well, you don't pedal with your face!" Apparently he was correct since he again took second place in the race and was the only rider in the field who managed to avoid being lapped even once by race winner Ryan Belliveau. The top junior men's rider for the day was Lucas McCulloch from Pictou County Freeriders.

The course was soaked and slow going from the heavy rains the previous day but all riders were sporting big grins under the mud cake. Big thanks go out to the Park staff who provided a hose for post race bike and rider clean up. The series wraps up next week - Nov 16th in Island View, NB with the inaugural Pie Cross Race there are strong rumours of delicious pies for prizes - details at
