This week's Intermountain Cup race at Deer Valley, Utah, was originally scheduled for last Saturday but heavy rains forced race officials to push it to Wednesday night start.
Conditions tonight were only slightly better than Saturday. Although the trail was dry and featured Deer Valleys signature buff singletrack the temperatures remained unseasonably low and rain was always threatening.
Here to heat things up were the Cannondale Factory riders including some of the most accomplished mountain bike racers in the world including Roel Paulisen, Marco Fontana, Manuel Furis, Jeremiah Bishop, and Alex Grant.
Cannondale is holding their annual sales and marketing meeting in Park City this week and they let the boys out to play on Wednesday night.
