Bordertown Challenge
Pequop Ranch, Nevada, July 29, 2006

In a combined Wild Rockies and Intermountain Cup event, team UMB headed through Wendover into the wilds of Nevada. This was a tough race, but ultimately satisfying. The average temperature during the race was 91 degrees. The sport loop was long and tough, 21.3 miles with 2700 total feet of climbing.  The climbs were hot and mean, one after another. The trail was dusty and loose -- for two miles after the "shotgun start" of the sport class, only the tips of sagebrush and the head of the rider in front could be seen through the gray cloud. A worthy challenge, indeed.
