2nd Overall 2010 Intermountain Cup Ex-40+

There was 13 races in this series. Starting in March and ending in August. Starting in the deserts of southern Utah before heading north to the alpine ski resorts of northern Utah. The fastest field outside of the Pros leaves many reluctant to compete in our class. Made up of mostly former Pros with children and like me are faster in there 40's than in there 30's or 20's. A few mechanicals held me back, but I'm sure the fastest man won the series. That's 2 years in a row taking second place overall.

2nd @ Basin Bash XC 7-31-10

Renovated for the 2002 winter olympics, Snow Basin ski resort served as yet another perfect venue. Updated and renovated for the olympics the resort was totally awesome for summer events as well. I've had bronchitis for 2 weeks, had untested tires, and absolutely no preride. The Snow Basin venue plays host to weekly training series, so I new the locals would have the home court advantage. For racing the course blind I did really well, holding the lead for the first lap. The new tires where a huge stumbling block of resistance and control and in this class you need to keep things as seamless as possible. Stuck in second overall for the series I plan on making a statement at the finals this weekend.

5th Stan Crane Memorial 5.31.10

This venue is very unique. The trail system, also Known as " Corner Canyon" is built in, around and through the surrounding neighborhood. 3000+ ft of climbing and single track so complex that I could not memorize the course to any real benefit. The turn out is huge do to the whole neighborhood showin up to defend there turf. I finished 5th which was great for me. I made no mistakes though my fitness is as slow in coming as spring it's self. I now move deep into second overall for the series.

4th Hammer Fest @ Soldier Hollow 5.22.10

The truth is in the title. "Soldier Hollow" was a cross country ski course designed and raced in the 2002 Olympics. In the spring however its simply grass roads wandering up and across the mountain side. The course was shortened by 1 mile of the ONLY single track involved in the course, leaving 8 miles of hilly grass roads. It was snowing all night and the morning before the race. The rained stopped an hour before the start and the course being all grass was only slightly effected. Anxiety was still high with the riders over the rain. Now that " Twitter" updates are live from the course the races have higher attendance when rain is in the area instead of assuming it's muddy.

4th Sundance Spin 2010

Home of the "Sundance Film Festival" this ski resort course is one of the most difficult in the series. Hard enough just to finish, let alone place. With a back drop like something out of " Lord of the Rings" the race starts with at least 20 minutes of climbing at full effort to the top. This is some of the first singl...e track offered is the series and the first out of the deserts and up in the mountains. I led the climb 2/3 of the way up. Catching first at the bottom, starting the second lap. After that I battled inside the top 6 until pulling ahead to secure a hard fought 4th.

I'll sit before I lay
I'll stand before I sit
I'll walk before I stand
I'll jog before I walk
I'll run before I jog
I'll sprint until I'm forced to quite
I'll ride before all of these
and drive if there no other way.

7th Desert Rampage 3-6-10

Desert Rampage is the season opener for the - Intermountain Cup- cross country race series. The series starts here the first weekend in March because of the warm weather conditions in southern Utah year round. The series works it's self northward as the season gets warmer. Many come from Arizona, Nevada, Colorado eager to race this soon in the year. Many having been stuck working out indoors and have new equipment to try out. From the Pro field to the beginner class the fields where packed, the weather was great as usual. The course is technically friendly for all. Can't ask for more
