TERRA ALTA -

The McKee's Sky Ranch All Brand Motorcycle Event began on Thursday and continued throughout the weekend.

This was the third year for the event which gives riders a chance to come out and race, while enjoying the beautiful scenery.

Organizers said this event really helps the economy in Preston County.

"We've been able to fill most of the hotel rooms the restaurant owners like it, and I'm sure the service station owners like it with all the motor homes that come in here. We really love West Virginia and so we're just hoping to introduce it to a lot of people that would maybe not find it," said McKee's Ranch landowner, Tom McKee.

The event is a vintage show with old bikes that can't be bought anymore.

Over the four day period several events took place including: a vintage cross country ride, vintage motocross, and a trail ride.

100 riders competed in each event and about 1,000 people came out to the McKee's Ranch.

Racers came from places such as Alaska, Quebec, Texas, and Pennsylvania to compete.

McKee said his favorite part of an event like this is to see all the people and socialize with friends you don't get to see very often.

Unfortunately, Sunday's race was canceled due to weather. Organizers said they plan to continue this tradition next summer.
