Red Rock Rampage
Green Valley Race Loop, St. George. March 1, 2014

The weather forecast said heavy rain. Yes, there was an overnight storm, but the morning sun rapidly dried the mud. The race went on schedule and the riding was superb. The first wave went at 10 a.m. for Beginner categories, kids, and Women 40-plus. Temperatures were into the upper 50s by the second race for Sport and Expert classes. It was a great day of racing. UMB's only first-place finish was Dallin Hatch, with Sally Reynders taking our only 2nd.

Cactus Hugger
Green Valley, St. George. April 5, 2014

For the second race of the 2014 ICup season, storm clouds surrounded the race course yet things remained dry for the riders. Sunshine peeked through the clouds for most of the race. A few gusts of wind and a couple of raindrops hit during the awards but overall it was a perfect day. The Cactus Hugger course served up plenty of rough rock on the technical south side of the loop. Overall the tough course knocked about 10% of our riders to trailside with flats and mechanicals. Dallin Hatch and Phil Blair took 1st place wins, with second-place finishes by Draeden Jensen, Steven Bonney, and Sally Reynders.

Rumble at 18 Road
Fruita, Colorado.  April 19, 2014

Our riders will remember this race for a long time. It may take electroshock therapy to ease the memories. For racers who were staged later in the first wave, this ride was a mud-slog extraordinaire.

Showdown at Five Mile Pass
Five Mile Pass, west of Lehi.  April 26, 2014 rescheduled to May 3, 2014

The scheduled date for the Five Mile Pass race was rained out, so the race was put off a week. For those who weren't totally hosed by the date change (pause for gnashing of teeth by your UMB website editor), Saturday offered great weather for the rocky rollers of the Pass. The UtahMountainBiking team missed many of our usual stalwarts, who had committed to other activities.

Lambert Park
Alpine. May 10, 2014

The morning dawned cool, with ominous low clouds over Lone Peak. The trails were damp and slimy from the rain. Hazy sunshine broke through, and the trails became just the right type of grip-damp for a terrific race. UMB has first-place finishes by Hunter Ransom, Kellye Potter, Richard Ewell, Mitt Stewart, Rick Morris, and Meghan Sheridan, with second-places by Sally Reynders, Geno Smith, Tim Wagstaff, Katy Nafus, Jason Cowley, and Bentley Vanderwel.
