Mountain bikers came from several states to participate in the 10th annual Appalachian Bike Classic.

Cassie Smith of Morgantown and TJ Platt of Kensington PA were the top winners in the 10th annual Appalachian Bike Class this past weekend.

They won the prized hand-carved wooden bowls for the fastest expert times.

Laurie Johnston of Fairmont and Jason McDaniel of Beckley won the Ace Adventure Rafting Trips for the fastest two-lap "sport times."

The race drew a wide array of mountain bikers from West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, to the Calhoun County Park, a two-day event that featured a family fun ride, kids events and a pond jump.
