Langford’s Brosius family brings home hardware

The three Brosius siblings brought home top spots for their provincial BMX age divisions

It was a miserable rainy day at the Langley BMX track last weekend where this years BMX provincial finals were held. The track was out of power due to a big wind storm that came through the day before, but the show still went on as the volunteers gathered generators and worked hard to make it a successful race.

The gate dropped for eight 12-year-old expert boys coming from all over B.C. to qualify for the main event where one would be eliminated.

Some of the riders were from Prince George, Garibaldi Highlands, Vernon, Nanaimo, Surrey, to name just a few.

West Shore resident Riely Brosius pushed hard on his cranks to get out of the gate to take a early lead down the first straight and rode hard to the finish line which landed him first to qualify for the main event.

Main event time, there were seven in the gate all going for first. The gate dropped and all the boy’s were tight going down the first straight but “Rippin” Riely pedaled hard and flew high, jumping, pumping and maneuvering to take the win against Jakob Plank from Vernon who he was tied with going into the finals.

Riely’s sisters brought home some top spots too. Sister Makayla brought home the #2 plate for 10-year-old girls in B.C. and little sister Tiffany followed in her brother’s footsteps also bringing home the #1 plate for six-year-old girls.
