BMXers Earn State Plates

Twenty riders from the Port Angeles BMX group participated in the Washington State Championship finals on Sept. 29 at River Valley BMX Track in Orting.


It was quite the mudfest, says Geri Thompson, but local riders survived the flood of water to bring home some state plates and championships in their respective age groups and different bikes.


Port Angeles BMX track closed this weekend until April, Thompson says, but there are indoor opportunities starting in November when the track reopens.
