Nearly 300 riders took to the Galena Lodge trails north of Ketchum for the sixth annual Whit Henry Memorial Galena Grinder mountain bike races.
Pro winners of the July 26 cross-country races were James Williams (Sobe/Canondale) of Bend, Ore. 1.48:15 and Sarah Barber of Boise. Like Riley-Carey, Barber is a member of the Kenda/Titus/Hayes professional mountain bike team.
The races were held in memory of Whit Henry, a Bellevue resident and Wood River High graduate. He was a 20-year-old mountain biking and skiing enthusiast who died in a car accident in July 2003.
