CEN­TRE­VILLE — The an­nual tri­cy­cle race at the Queen Anne’s County Fair Thurs­day, Aug. 9, did not dis­ap­point with its usual hair­pin turns and even­tual spills.

This year’s com­pe­ti­tion in­cluded eight teams com­prised of four mem­bers in a track in the main show ring for a re­lay race. Or­ga­niz­ers also un­veiled new tri­cy­cles as apt at the tell-tale drift­ing that makes the race en­ter­tain­ing.

Teams In­cluded the “Of­fi­cial Chicks,” “FDIC,” Team Autism,” “Team Trike,” “In­gle­side Hot Wheels,” “2020,” “Coastin’ Bike” and “Goat Getters.”

Af­ter a series of three heats with three teams each, it was “In­gle­side Hot Wheels” cross­ing for the check­ered flag and taking the over­all ti­tle and grand prize of a gift cer­tifi­cate.
