Dawson Creek gets Extreme

FMX riders Sayers, Garrett Ahlf, Destin Cantrell and Cody Elkins made jump after death defying jump over a 75 foot stretch, showing off everything from the most basic biking skills to challenging back flips. Perhaps giving Fort St. John ATV’ers some ideas, Elkins also impressed by jumping with a quad and even doing a back flip, before doing the exact same trick on his dirt bike.

Street bike veteran Shaun Ogilvie made some friendly competition with newcomer Craig Latimer, each showing off with spins and even head stands on their bikes.

Throughout the show the BMX team of Jeremiah Smith, Josh Hult, Jonesy Federson, and Benjamin Voyles displayed a dizzying aray of tricks on the quarterpipe. Fedderson later hurt his back during a jump, but was able to walk away and was seen with an ice pack after the show.

That wasn’t the only mishap as during rehearsal, Heath Frisby, the first and only snowmobile rider to land a front flip in competition, crashed through the doors of the Encana Events Centre, wrecking his sled, and was unable to perform during the show. However, Frisby came out to speak to the crowd while they got a look at his damaged machine, proving how dangerous extreme sports can be.

He and the rest of the crew made sure to stick around to meet fans young and old after the show, capping off an exciting night.
