Summary:   25 UMB riders hit the trail for this race. Outstanding performers were Justin Griffin with our only 1st place, and Carlee Hunsaker and Bruce Argyle with 2nd place finishes. We gathered 50 team points, split among 11 riders. The kids out-rode the adults by 33 team points to 17. Hey, didn't they say we were a family-friendly team? Many of last year's beginners are now riding Sport -- we're a faster team but the points don't come as easy.
