Stephen Ferris of the Blizzard Club won the final Challenge Cup race of the 2003 season, in Beatton Park, Sunday. He won the 3-lap mountain bike event with Gilbert Bilodeau in second place and Andrew Kovacs in third. 2003 Club Champ Trevor McDonell was 4th and Richard Howes was 5th.

Twenty-three riders started the race. They did a short circuit mass start around the lot, which soon narrowed down to a single track. Stephen Ferris pulled away on the first long hill with Robert Martens in pursuit. Ferris held his lead as Martens had a mechanical problem and dropped out in the technical section. Gilbert Bilodeau worked his way up to second after briefly leading, as well.

Roger St. Jean was 6th in the 3-lap event with Pat Ferris 7th, Gary Hilderman 8th and Sam Keats in 9th.

Brad Tomlinson of Grande Prairie won the 2 lap event with Adam Currie in second and Ryan Stickel third.

Tessa Bilodeau won the 1 lapper with Ken Nix second and Tyson Carter third. Angela Ripley was 4th, Trisha Gladysz 5th, Adam Bilodeau 6th, Dayna Stickel 7th and Dawn Gladysz 8th.
