This is Dirtbiker.ca's top 22 B.C. offroad trail racers for the 2011 season!
These rankings are based on racers race results from The Canadian Enduro Championships, PNWMA offroad racing series, The VIHSS, The OHSS, Xtinction, and some American races.
A racer like Cory Graffunder may not have raced in B.C. this year but is born and raised here, so he deserves to be recognized for his accomplishments south of the border.
Why 22? Well, I just couldn't leave out Canada's top 2 women racers off this list. They both have done amazing things this year. They are both racing with A racers now, and show that they have the skill and determination to be contenders against the boys.
So here we go, the top 22!

You could throw the likes of Brock Hoyer into the mix, but he only raced a few races. He would Definitely be in the top 10, most likely top 5 if he raced off road some more.
