Dirty Knobby rides at Bull Mountain for another successful event

Families and friends are gathering Saturday at the Williams Lake Off Road Motorcycle Association’s Dirty Knobby.

Held on multiple courses, riders are given the option to ride an A, B, C or mini course to collect cards for the poker run. The best five-card hand will be awarded the winner.

Sasha Kokesch, president of the WLORMA, said Saturday’s turnout was above average. Sunday, riders will meet at Tim Hortons at 9:30 a.m. where guided rides will be booked.

“The weather co-operated, the trails are in good shape and thanks to our club members for helping out with that. We had a lot of blow down this year,” Kokesch said.

He also noted the city donated a $2,000 grant, which was matched by the Cariboo Regional District, for work on the road and trails leading into the staging area at Bull Mountain, where the event was housed.

“Have fun out there today,” he said, and encouraged everyone attending to become a WLORA member.

“Part of being a club member isn’t always fun. It’s a small core group who make sure this stuff is available to people.”

The Dirty Knobby also had a well-received concession where burgers and hot dogs were served courtesy of the Ramada Hotel.

Tons of donations were made by local businesses to ensure everyone went home with a prize.

Results are as follows:


1.) Steve Mckeown, 9

2.) Jasper Kokesch, 7

3.) Keeley Kokesch, 5


1.) Brad Bulow

2.) Allen Hare.

3.) Steven Porter
