Cloverdale’s Rob Kielesinski can go home knowing his team continues to be the team to beat at the annual bed races.
The bed races, a kick-off to the Cloverdale Rodeo that has been going on since the 1970s, saw a number of teams compete by racing bed frames down 176A Street on May 17.
Kielensinki, better known as Turkey, saw his team from Turkey’s Party Makers take home the coveted ‘Bed Pan’ trophy for the men’s division at this year’s races. The high school boys’ division trophy was awarded to senior varsity football team from Lord Tweedsmuir. The high school girls’ division was won by Fit For Life.
The mixed division, who took home the Bill Reid Centre of the Universe trophy, was taken by staff at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary.
The women’s division was won by the Surrey Beavers soccer team, who not only took home the ‘Chamber Pot’ trophy, but also the award for best dressed team.
The bed races weren’t only a feat of speed and fun costumes however. It was also host to the annual bike parade, and a demonstration from world-renowned skateboarders who will be competing at the World Freestyle Roundup.
