Red Rock Desert Rampage
Green Valley Race Loop, St. George. March 3, 2012

While northern Utah was digging out from 8 inches of snow, the weather was sunny and dry in St. George. After a cool early morning, temperatures rose into the low 60s. The trail was in great shape for racing. The Rampage saw a good racer turnout as the cold-weather refugees came to southern Utah for some pedaling and sunshine. UMB had 45 racers in the competition. We had first-place wins by Adam Lee, Rachel Hutchings, David Sheeran, Ben Schmalz, Justin Griffin, and Jay Griffin, with 2nd-place finishes by Christian Burrell, Eric Ellis, and Chanda Jeppson.

USCS Lambert Park
Lambert Park, Alpine.  April 28, 2012

The USCS circuit race at Lambert Park was blessed with sunny weather. The trail was tacky from Thursday's rains, so dust wasn't a problem. The 3.4-mile race loop was fun and fast. Morning check-in temperature for the beginners was 33 degrees, but things had warmed up by race time. UMB had 24 team racers at the event, part of a large crowd of 300-plus racers. We saw first-place wins by Ben Becker, Ben Schmalz, Bruce Argyle, and Meghan Sheridan. Joel Quinn took a 2nd place, and 3rd-place podium finishers were Adam Lee, Tim Martindale, John Higgins, and Nate Drozd.

Showdown at Five Mile Pass
Five Mile Pass, west of Lehi.  May 5, 2012 was represented by 42 racers at Five Mile Pass. The trail was dry and dusty, with plenty of room to pass on the 10.7-mile doubletrack loop. The morning started out with a chilly wind, but it stopped just in time for pleasant racing temperatures and a warm barbeque afterwards. UMB had first place wins by Christian Burrell, Adam Lee, Stephan Bergen, and Jake VanWagoner.  Second-place finishers were Chase Vallejo and Tim Martindale.

Sundance Spin
Sundance Resort, North Fork, Provo Canyon. May 12, 2012

The 34-degree early morning chill quickly gave way to pleasant temperatures before the start of the Sundance Spin in Provo Canyon. UMB was represented by 45 racers, which is close to record turnout for our team. The trails were dry and even a little dusty on Sundance's twisty singletrack. First place spots for UMB were Dallin Hatch, Rachel Hutchings, and Jay Griffin. There were many second-place wins, including Ryan Margetts, Tim Martindale, Adam Lee, Steve Bonney, Denmark Jensen, Casey Gibbs, and Bruce Argyle.

Hammerfest at the Hollow
Soldier Hollow, Midway.  May 19, 2012

At Soldier Hollow, 35 racers represented the UMB team for the 5th race of the 2012 Intermountain Cup season. The day before the race, a rainstorm dampened the trails to make the surface absolutely perfect for riding. On raceday the weather was perfect with sunshine and cool racing temperatures. UMB had first-place wins by Dallin Hatch and Lee Nitchman, plus second-place finishes by Draeden Jensen, Ryan Margetts, Michael Dodge, Tim Martindale, Jake Van Wagoner, Ian Beaty, Jay Griffin, and Joel Quinn.

Stan Crane Memorial
Draper's Corner Canyon, Monday May 28 (Memorial Day), 2012

The weather was sunny and clear for the Memorial Day race at Corner Canyon. The rains of the past two days gave time for the trail surface to dry, leaving just enough moisture for the tire tread to get a firm grip on the trail. UMB fielded 44 racers for this 6th race of the 2012 Intermountain Cup season. Our first place winners were Adam Lee and Jay Griffin. Sawyer Ransom, Ryan Margetts, Jake Van Wagoner, Ian Beaty, Stephan Bergen, Rick Morris, and Meghan Sheridan won second place ribbons.

Deer Valley Pedalfest
Deer Valley, June 9, 2012
(non-ICup event, USAC Qualifier)

The Deer Valley Pedalfest for 2012 was a USA Cycling event and was not part of the Intermountain Cup Series. Because age categories are different and racers must qualify to ride Cat 1, it's hard to combine ICup with USAC into the same race. UMB had 16 racers at Deer Valley, with first place wins going to John Higgins, Dallin Hatch, and Rachel Hutchings, and second places to Jason Sparks, Jay Griffin, and Mike Engberson.

Wimmer's Race at Sherwood
Sherwood Hills, Logan, June 30, 2012

The singletrack at Sherwood Hills was in beautiful shape, but dry and dusty. Because the race loop is short, racers are staged into three separate races. By the Expert race at 1:30, it was plenty toasty. UMB had quite a few empty categories in this race, but still came away with a good team showing. We had first-place finishes by Devin Spencer, Eric Jensen, Jake Van Wagoner, Casey Gibbs, Jay Griffin, and Joel Quinn plus second-places by David Ressa, Ian Beaty, Jack Gage, Jeff Kingsford, John Twitchell, Meghan Sheridan, and Casey Zaugg.

Snowbird Mountain Bout
Snowbird Resort, Little Cottonwood Canyon, July 7, 2012

The weather was cool but humid at Snowbird, as two days of rain had drenched the mountainside. Things were a bit slippery for the first race, but the trail was drying by the second. The new singletrack descent was a hit with riders, increasing both the distance and the fun. UMB had first-place finishes by Adam Lee, Dallin Hatch, Stephan Bergen, and Dave Benson. David Ressa, Rachel Hutchings, Hayden Sampson, Ian Beaty, Cat Kalwies, John Twitchell, and Meghan Sheridan were second-place winners.
