Wood River Cup draws crowds

Mountain bikers at Rotarun

Rotarun Ski Area is the epicenter of competitive mountain biking in the valley.

Last Wednesday’s Wood River Cup Race was the first race of the season and many people came out to watch.

Races are run on a three-quarter mile dirt track with topographical challenges that vary week to week.

Kids under the age of 12 race in the national Shimano Youth Series, held on a separate, flatter track to help those tikes get a handle on their rides.

Races are held every Wednesday for the next four weeks and start at 6 p.m. The first event each week will be the women’s race, to be followed by junior races and finishing up with men’s races scheduled to start at 7:45.

Billy Olson is the coordinator of the series and the director of Sun Valley Road & Dirt camps. Olson was pleased with both the spectator and competitor turnouts Wednesday—22 guys raced in three categories.

Olson also wanted to congratulate Corey Bellinger on an outstanding night winning both his age category and the men’s sport class.

Finals for the Wood River Cup will be held on July 2. Call Billy Olson for any and all details at 788-9184.
