Beshano riders wow crowd at Expo in Barriere

“Wow”, was an exclamation heard frequently during the Rural Living Expo when nationally acclaimed Beshano Bike Trials riders were performing

With amazing feats of athletic ability

“Wow”, was an exclamation heard frequently inside the North Thompson Agriplex during the Rural Living Expo and Trade Show when the nationally acclaimed Beshano Bike Trials riders were performing.

With amazing feats of athletic ability, strength and control, the riders gave three performances each day that were exciting to watch and in some instances downright amazing.   Balancing their mountain bikes on the rear wheel,  on cubes strategically placed at various heights, the riders leapt the bikes into the air across great distances to land onto another cube, and then strived to cover even more distance the next time.

The show was fun, fast paced, and a crowd pleaser.  So much so, that the team from the Lower Mainland will be back in Barriere this fall to perform at the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo, Aug. 30 – Sept. 1.
