6 Hours of Frog Hollow 
Hurricane, Utah

Written By: Shannon Boffeli

In it’s fifth year the 6 Hours of Frog Hollow was all about changes. The most notable being the new spring race date, the race is typically held in late fall.

The new date proved to be a huge success as this year’s race sold out quickly and generated much excitement from the crowd on hand.

The second big change was a redesigned racecourse. The new course eliminated some of the toughest sections of rocky climbing and replaced them with smooth singletrack and the added bonus of spending more time on the world-class Jem Trail.

"We had a lot of kids and first-timers who wanted to race this event,” said race director Cimarron Chacon. "That’s why we used the new singletrack around the rocks. We’ll keep the rocky section for the 25 hour race though.” Referring to the 25 Hours of Frog Hollow, a race held in the same location in the fall.

Overall the race seemed to be a great success and generated much excitement on course.

The race starts with a short run to the bikes followed by an all out sprint for 50 minutes. As is his habit Kuhl/Rocky Mountain rider Chris Holley put in the fastest first lap and fastest lap of the day crossing the line in 47 minutes 15 seconds for round one. Chris was part of a coed duo team with his wife KC. Along with being teammates they are also new parents and would pass their 7-month-old baby girl off between laps.

While the Holleys were out front the coed team favorites of Amanda Carey and Cary Smith were suffering some misfortune as Smith had flatted toward the end of lap one and was forced to run to the finish line. That flat left Liv/Giant rider Amanda Carey with an almost 4 minute deficit to overcome and she did so by throwing down the fastest women’s lap time of the day at 53 minutes 10 seconds. Once out front these two could not be caught taking the win and completing 6 laps on the roughly 14-mile course.

Chris and KC Holley finished second followed by Shannon Boffeli and Jen Hanks (Epic Brewing/MTBRaceNews.com) in third.

The duo categories were some of the fastest on the day as the lead men’s duo group of Ryan Blaney and Stewart Goodwin (Kuhl/Rocky Mountain) were at the very front of the race after passing solo leader Dave Harward (Plan 7) Blaney and Goodwin won their category with the fastest time of the day completing 6 laps in just 5 hours 11 minutes, almost a full hour in front of their closest competition Mad Doggers 4Life.

Dave Harward had an impressive ride and held the front of the race for over half of the 6 hours. The sometimes roadie sometimes mountain biker proved he’s nearly unbeatable on any bike he rides. Harward logged lap after lap at the front of the race and finished the day second on course besting all the teams except one.

Sam Sweetser (Cole Sport) gave Harward some trouble early on until finally popping on lap three. Sweetser stayed in second place until flatting with just a few miles left in his final lap. The flat would cost him two spots dropping him into fourth at the finish. Matt Woodruff (Kuhl) overtook Sweetser for second crossing the line just 3 minutes in front of Matt Mangen who took third.

Women’s solo winner Joey Lythgoe (Kuhl) broke her competition right out of the gate, logging the 2nd and 3rdfastest women’s lap times on lap one and two. From there it was smooth consistency that carried her to a race win and being the only solo female rider to complete 6 laps.

The race included 12 singlepseeders crazy enough to take on 6 Hours of Frog Hollow with just one gear. Singlespeed superstar AJ Linnell (Fitzgerald’s/Pivot) out classed all the one speeders taking the win by over 20 minutes while SoCal Endurance rider Heidi Volpe made the trip out from California to take the women’s race. Volpe logged 5 laps in 5 hours 33 minutes.
