A trio of local siblings, Alison, Alex and Aiden Grecht, left their competition in the dust at the Canadian National BMX Championships in Drummondville, Quebec.

All three riders rode away with the number two ranking in their age groups (Alison, age 15, Alex, 14, and Aiden, 12) for the Factory Team Squared/Answer/Canada team.

The siblings have all been selected to be part of the B.C. Cycling Development team as well.

Upon their return home, the Grecht’s then went out and competed at the B.C. championships in Surrey, with all three bringing home the B.C. Champion #1 plate for their age groups.

All three riders are part of the Oceanside BMX Club, having raced for the last nine years together.

Alison, the oldest of the bunch, will now be travelling on August 28 for the Canada Cup final in the Junior Development Class (14-16 year olds).
