Ten bikers and seven runners competed in this year’s Bobby Johnson Summer Bay Classic, now in its 20th year. The route for this annual half marathon race begins at the Community Center parking lot on East Broadway, follows Overland Drive up and over the pass to Summer Bay Road, and finally to the finish line just past 4th Street.
Though 20 tires left the starting line, only 14 crossed the finish line. Liam Andersen got off his bike 20 yards before line and carried it across with a dramatic flare. Two bikes fell to breakdowns on the trail: Beatriz Dietrick had a flat tire and ran the last 5 miles and Jeff Dickrell's bike broke at the top of Summer Bay Pass forcing him to forfeit the race.

Second place went to Team Matson at 6 under par and third place to Harbor Welding’s Grey Team at 5 under par.
