It was a beautiful day out to go biking on Saturday, and in Harrison County, bikers from all over the country came out to test their skills on two wheels at the Clarksburg Grand Prix.

Nearly 150 bikers from several different colleges like WVU, Duke, and Virginia Tech zoomed down Main Street to test their skills on their bikes. Before the big public race, kids of all ages also got to see how fast they could go.

Organizers say the grand prix helps bring business to the local economy, and most importantly, it helps everyone get in their exercise.

We have 150 racers here, and probably 15 are locals, so we're bringing 130 racers into the area so they can shop at local businesses and help out the economy," said J.R. Petsko, Executive Director of the Appalachian Bicycle Racing Association.

Even though the kids didn't win anything, most of them had a good time getting some exercise in.
