On June 17, the Libby Millpond MX Association held it’s tenth annual MotoX event, with almost 400 people coming through the gate to see the 74 races held on the day. Along with local competitors, participants came from as far away as Nelson, British Columbia and Great Falls.

“Spectator numbers were up by a lot this year,” said board member Jenn Remp. “We had 40 volunteers help on the day, and we are so thankful and appreciative to everyone who donated their time and money to make the event so successful.”

Remp said there were some fun new races this year, including parents riding their kids tiny bikes.

“We are also grateful to Libby volunteer ambulance, who made a few runs for broken bones on the day,” Remp said.
