BMX racers from all over Northern California flocked to Manteca for the Regional District Double Points race at Spreckels Park on Saturday.

Manteca locals Jeffery Silva and Justin Dias took home big wins in the 11-year-old Novice and Intermediate divisions, respectively. 

Meghan Matthews brought home the gold in the 17-27 Girls division, with strong wins in all qualifying rounds. 

The 5-under divisions had more local victories. Manteca’s Gage Delong won an action packed main event in the Novice division, going from third to first in the last corner.  Sage Schmidt of Oakdale made a skillful pass in the “rhythm section” third straightaway for an impressive win in the Intermediate division.
