Deer Valley Pedalfest
Deer Valley  -  June 9, 2007

Deer Valley had perfect conditions, as a recent soaking rain left just the right amount of grip in the soil with no slippery spots. UMB fielded 25 racers, with 13 scoring team points. The weather was a sunny but cool "just right" for fast riding. We had first place finishes by Justin Griffin, Carlee Hunsaker, and Dave Larsen, with second-places by Todd Neumarker and Kellie Williams.

The Deer Valley race tied our smallest turnout in the 7 races of this season. We especially missed our young beginning riders -- but so did all the other teams, as these categories had only one or two participants. Must be the call of summer... We took a close 2nd in the team competition. A big thanks to all who were able to make it to Deer Valley. It was a beautiful day on a great trail.

A big "thank you" to Jay Griffin for the awesome race photos!
