Pomerelle Bike Pounder hosts large group of out-of-state bike racers
ALBION, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) -Saturday marked the beginning of the Pomerelle Pounder Bike Race, with a large turnout of out-of-state bike racers.
What some Idahoans recognize as a snowy ski resort in the winter, has transformed this weekend into the playground of adrenaline seeking downhill bike racers. Several of the racers and attendees KMVT spoke with said they are delighted to compete after seeing several of their events cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
KMVT spoke with sibling bike racing duo Jonny and Abby Aldrid from Utah.
“It’s just so fun, the adrenaline that you get when come down the course, just like chilling at the bottom with your friends,” said Jonny Aldris. “It’s a super fun environment.”
“I think that just the progression like trying new things and feeling like you can actually be fast and competitive on things that used to be scary to you are super fun,” said Abby Aldrid.
The Pomerelle Mountain will be open to all guests from 12 p.m. till 6 p.m. on Sunday for a chance to witness racers competing at three different levels.
