Fort St. John riders win 24 Hours of Light Relay

If biking non-stop for 24 hours sounds difficult, well, it is. That's what the four members of the Fort St. John team at the 24 Hours of Light Relay in Whitehorse did this weekend. Not only that, but they rode the farthest as well.

Overall, the team cycled the 12.3 kilometre track 31 times, just one loop more than the second place team.

"We snuck in one last lap there at the very end that put us ahead," explains Gary Hilderman, one of the riders. "It was a close race."

During those 24 hours, Hilderman, Stephen Ferris, Jay Morrison and Denny Morrison took turn riding one or two laps, without any sleep. Hilderman said at times it was tough, but their bodies gave them that extra push when they needed it.

"The whole time you're awake, so your adrenaline kicks in and that helps. There was definitely a few times in the morning that everybody was very tired, and it was a little hard, but you're all excited so your adrenaline kicks in."

The team was put together by Hilderman, who has participated in a few 24 hour relays before but never been far north. The relay is considered more of a festival than a competitive race, as participants get to experience the "Midnight Sun" of the Yukon.That means there are no artificial lights, as it stays light enough all night for riders to see.

Along with being an entertaining race, Hilderman says it's also been a fun road trip with a good group of guys. They're taking today to rest, and will make their way back to the Energetic City on Wednesday.
