Unlike Golf or tennis and some other sports - there was no “Rain Delay” at Malakwa yesterday for the final round of the 2018 Outlaw Series - but to be truthful, the weather was pretty ugly, more like Scotland than BC. - A stark contrast from Round #2 at Scotch Creek , when the temperatures were in the +30 range.
However, nobody was complaining, as the riders set out to tackle two loops of the ten sections that Sammy King had set up around the Carl Kuster Mountain Park, a wonderful area at the north end of the Okanagan Valley. -  Kudus to Sam for getting the degree of difficulty just about spot on allowing for the poor weather conditions.
It was great to see riders from both the Vancouver area and Alberta make the long road trip to support the event - with snow forecast for the Mountain Passes, nobody could blame anybody for staying home. - At least the rainy spell, will help postpone the worry of Forest fires.

Here is a shot of Ted McDowall (TRS) taking the win in the Senior Advanced Class, plus he clinched the #1 plate for the Series.
