Brian Marsh has just completed a very successful year of cycling, culminating in him being awarded the B.C. Master’s Cycling overall men’s points trophy. “A good part of this award belongs to the Grand Forks Cycling Club,” said Marsh. This is the first year the award has been won from a rider from the Interior. Bill Yearwood (on the left), president of the BC Master’s Cycling program presented the trophy to Marsh in Victoria.  Marsh always wears the black and gold of the Grand Forks Cycling Club while racing.  “Over the years with terrific support and encouragement of club members I have learned how to race and ultimately win a race,” said Marsh. “Without these words of advice and encouragement I would never have had the confidence and drive to complete a year such as 2013.”He said it takes a whole club to develop a competitive rider and encourage the recreational rider. “Thanks again for putting me and the GFCC on the podium,” Marsh said.
