Taming the Tetons
Jackson Hole, July 22, 2006

On a hot sunny morning in Teton Village, dominated the team competition with a solid win. The 6-mile loop has 1100 feet of climbing and is almost all singletrack. The rocks and roots make this one of the most difficult -- but most fun -- races on the Intermountain Cup circuit.

crosses the finish line in 1st place for Sport Men 
19-29. Tyler has dominated the Beginner Men 19-29 
division, so he's moved up to Sport.

Thanks to Diane Argyle and Kris Nosack for the race photography. Mike Engberson handled logistics of campground reservations and team cookout. Richard Williams (Kellie's dad) was one of our "team chefs" all three nights, and acted as general team support. And thanks, racers and families, for your sacrifices in coming to Jackson Hole. This race moved us into first place in the 2006 Intermountain Cup team competition. As this season began for our little team, who would have thought we'd be in contention for the title?

The after-race BBQ featured tons of
good stuff. Over 40 UMB racers and family
members were at this mid-season feed.

Mike cooks the burgers and dogs. Bruce
did the dutch-oven taters'n'onions.
Richard made the dutch-oven cobbler.

Mike's wife Lisa serves up the
watermelon. And after the sun went
down, s'mores.
