Rather than being timed or judged, the winner of the event was voted for by the riders.

In an Instagram post, Proulx Royds said she couldn’t describe how stoked she was to take home the Dark Horse title.

“This means the world to me and I couldn’t be more proud of every single person who came to this legit event! Best event I’ve ever been to.”

Other riders at the event included: Georgia Astle, Micayla Gatto, Bailey Goldstone, Jordy Scott, Natasha Miller, Miranda Miller, CJ Selig, Lily Boucher, Sarah Walter, Lucy Van Eastern and Brown.
