Grand Charge Results

The Boise Braves Mountain Bike Team was totally PUMPED going into The Grand Charge (Race #3) at Grand Targhee on Saturday!

Ian Mullens (BBMTB), Alec Miller (C4) and Grant Gardener (Pocatello Pioneers) had an epic battle in the Varsity Boys wave. They were riding at “pro” speeds and the lead was alternating between Alec and Ian each lap with Grant hot on their heels. After averaging 24.75 minute splits for four laps, Ian came home with the win after putting it all out there on the race course.

James Roloff broke his chain 10 feet of the start line, ran ½ mile up a steep hill, replaced the chain just under five minutes, passed over 100 riders, and even with a 5-minute penalty for “outside assistance”, placed 15th in a field of 61 riders!

We had student-athletes get on the podium for the first time this season.  Congratulations Bodie and Tysen Brownlee and Cooper Wiley! With many injuries and mechanical failures this past weekend, the Braves still came in 4th overall among 22 teams, and is ranked 2nd in the League going into the Championship races!

Way to go, BBMBT!!!!
