Championship points were given for best five (5) results and those racers with fewer than five races, do not qualify. Additionally, two (2) points were earned by a few competitors for volunteering during a MORS event.
The winner of MORS Team Competition is GAS/ Intrinsik by a landslide with 406 points. Runner up in the team competition is Montana Junior Cycling Federation with 216 points. Nice work Juniors! The team competition award is a team dinner compliments of Montana Ale Works in Bozeman. Sorry there’s no second place award for runner up.
A bright spot for MORS in 2007 was five downhill events. There were 70 DH competitors at this years Lone Peak Revenge. If we can convince downhill racers to join MBRA, we can strive for a championship series.
If the MORS series provided you with a thrill and some satisfaction, please tell your buddies or pass the word about your racing experience. Our attendance was down this year and we must work together to promote our sport.
Thanks to Charla Carter and her team of volunteers in Red Lodge for running a successful event with multiple races and activities on the weekend of September 15 and 16.
I want to express my appreciation to all of MBRA board members, race officials, MORS sponsors and race volunteers for their support in making MORS successful and in particular thanks to John Coulthard (statistician), Al Prendergrass (web master) and Don Russell (chief offical).
