Local rider Tory Nyhaug competed today in the qualifying rounds of Olympic BMX and narrowly missed making it through to the semi-finals.
After a great first round Tory ended up in a crash in the second round that put him well back in the points but he put in an incredible effort in the remaining three rounds and won the final moto. Unfortunately he came up one point short of moving through to the semi-finals.
While I am sure that Tory will be disappointed in not having moved on to the semi-finals we want him to know that everyone at Ridge Meadows BMX is proud of him and how courageous he has been in the face of adversity this season. He has done a fantastic job of representing our country and our sport.
