Race at Sherwood
Logan  -  July 7, 2007

Beautiful aspen, fir, maple trees. Ferns and grassy meadows. Twisting singletrack heading up and down in the trees. Yes, it was hot and dusty. But this was a challenging race in a pretty setting -- and even fun, in retrospect, after the suffering was over. Only a small core contingent of the UMB team made it to Sherwood Hills south of Logan for the 9th race of the season. First place finishes were won by Justin Griffin, Carlee Hunsaker, and Kellie Williams, with one second-place by Bruce.

backdrop as Jolene Nosack hustles to
the 5th place finish in Women 35-plus.

Right:  Sally Hutchings spins the pedals
towards a point for the team with a 7th-place

The twisting trail through the trees made this a great race. Despite the anticipation of hot 'n horrible riding, it was enjoyable, if a bit dusty. It was a bit disappointing that more UMB riders didn't get to ride here. This was our smallest turnout of the season with 17 racers. How about next week? Let's rock 'em at Snowbird! Remember: if other riders hate the race, we'll do that much better.

Thanks to Jay Griffin for making the big effort to take and process our the team photos! It's a lot of work, and much appreciated!
