Still In First After Thompson Park Race

The standings were just released today and even with a flat and a third place finish in the Thompson Park Mtn Bike Race I am still barely squeaking by at the top of Montana Cycling’s  MORS Standings.  I am hoping to come on strong in the last half of the season to defend this position and can only feel lucky enough to be defending it.  It has been a great season so far. Here are the top five as of today:

# Name Club Age Cat Points
6 William Martin R.O.A.R. 41 Expert 78.5
3 John Curry GAS/Intrinsik Architecture 26 Semi-Pro 75
Matt Butterfield Sportsman Ski Haus/Cannondale 26 Expert 51
12 Daniel Jenkins GAS/Intrinsik Architecture 18 Expert 44
4 Alexandre Lussier GAS/Intrinsik Architecture 35 Expert 39

I plan on traveling to Ketchum Idaho for this weekends Galena Grinder XC and Marathon.  According to the Knobby Tires website,

“Come experience some of the greatest high altitude mountain bike racing in southern Idaho.  This course is an old favorite!  Galena hosted a NORBA National race in 1988, when John Tomac beat Ned Overend. 

This course consists of one 22.5 mile loop with 50% singletrack.  Start/Finish is at 7,000 feet, with a total elevation gain of 3,200 in one loop.  An “Open” category (for any racers who choose to NOT purchase an annual license) will be held for the Marathon, which is two 22.5 mile loops (45 miles).  Winning Marathon time will be approximately 4 to 4 1/2 hours.”

Next weekend is the Butte 100 so stay tuned!
