Wolverine Ridge
North Slope Uinta Mountains, August 12, 2006
2006 Intermountain Cup Season Finale

UtahMountainBiking came out in force to Wolverine Ridge, determined to win the season championship. We generated the highest point production ever under the new scoring system, 103 points. In this double-points race, that's 206. There was blood on more than one UMB rider (but only one broken bone), as every rider gave their best and got across the finish line.

Left to right:  Sally Hutchings, Ben Hutchings, Jay Griffin, Justin Griffin, and Dan Hutchings.

place in the 10-12 category. Going right
back onto the trail, a crash held Justin to
8th place in Sport Men 13-15.

Dan Hutchings sprints out from the
starting gate in a mob of Beginner 
Men 19-29. Dan grabbed a 2nd 
place finish.

for this race. Riding a long 28 miles, he
took 1st in Expert Men 16-18, becoming

As the season began, who would have thought that UtahMountainBiking, the team known for "family values," would take the championship?  A lot of dedication, sacrificed weekends, and hard riding made it happen.

Dave Larsen takes 1st place for the 
season in Sport Men 16-18. By winning
Wolverine as an expert rider, he also had
top points in Expert Men 16-18.

Kellie Williams (far left) is the 2nd
place racer for the season in Sport 16-18.

Mike Engberson (at left in photo
on the right) nailed 2nd place for
the season in Sport Men 30-39. 

Dallin Searle finishes the season with the championship in 9-and-under. Dallin finished first place in every race he attended.

Audrey Searle was the 1st place female 9-and-under for the season. When Audrey raced, only Dallin could beat her. 

Jolene Nosack wins the 2nd-place position
for the season in Women 35-plus.

Justin Griffin dominated the 10-12 category
to overwhelmingly capture 1st place for the
2006 season.  2006 Season Champions

We're now a little stronger and a little faster. Some of us have moved up to new, harder categories. We have the right to be a little proud of ourselves. It was a great season.
