WEST MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, Pa.-- Dirt bikes rumbled into York County on Saturday for the 4th Annual White Rose Thunder at the York Expo Center in West Manchester Township.

The event typically lasts through the weekend, but this year, it's been cut down to just one day due to cleanup from the York Fair. That doesn't mean there's any shortage of entertainment though. Organizers say their focus this year is on racing, as 170-riders from across the country compete for thousands in prize money.

"We've had an exceptional turn out, we do have a number of riders who came from the west coast, a number of nationally ranked riders who are here today competing with us. We took what used to be three or four days of fun, compacting them into one. Although, in the past we had a big Saturday race day which we still have going on right now," says Jeff Rehmeyer, who organized the event.

Today's event also included a bike show, where judges gave out prizes in categories including, Best In Show and Best Paint.
