Welcome to summer! The team has been active all across the state racing and riding together, and we're just getting started. Keep reading to see what we've been up to and the exciting plans we have coming up, and stay up to date by following along with @teamboogerfanpage on Instagram.
23 Booger riders, 6 teams and 1 solo effort, lined up to test themselves against the long night during the 24 Hours of Riverside. We are incredibly proud to have three teams finish on their category podiums, two of which were open age-categories!
Teams worked together to complete a relay around a 12-mile course through hot sun, cold rain, thunder and lightning, and the dark of night.
Though sleep was hard to find, the Booger camp was kept warm and positive through rider and volunteer (thanks parents!) energy. Each team used a different strategy to share the workload throughout the race, but everyone was excited to see the pancake griddles get fired up on Sunday morning after racing through the night.
This race was also an opportunity for Boogers from across Washington to meet up and race together- we now have riders in Wenatchee, Spokane, Winthrop and beyond!
And coming up...
