Standish and Gomez Villafane Take the Battle at North Fork

Eden, Utah (July 7, 2018)—Ryan Standish (Orange Seal/Merida Bikes Australia) and Sofia Gomez Villafane (Stans Pivot Protein p/b Maxxis) powered through the heat, dust and fierce competition to take top spot in the elite men’s and elite women’s respectively in the Intermountain Cup Battle at North Fork X-country MTB race.

Situated north of Pineview Dam in Ogden Valley with incredibly scenic mountain views featuring ubiquitous green scrub oak obscuring the trails and granite slabs protruding from the mountains above, the second iteration of the Battle at North Fork has become one of the more difficult X-country races of the Intermountain Cup series. Not only did the 200+ racers struggle with approximately 1,300’ of climbing in the seven-mile loop, but they also battled temperatures in the mid 90s and dry, dusty trails with respite coming only in some of the fast and flow singletrack.
