Due to Mother Nature's unpredictable ways, in 2014 we were forced to alter our course slightly.  This resulted in a few added K's but a much safer and smoother road crossing at the top end of the course.  Based on very postive survey feedback, we decided to make the change permanent!

For those of you who weren't here for the inaugural event, come join us this year and see for yourself!

Some thoughts about the 2014  BMT from 3 time

Champion Sylvan Ellefson.

First, thanks again for putting on such an amazing event! 
This town and this race is really cool and it's really 
something to be proud of.

The new start was great I thought. It did a good job at
kind of breaking up the group a little bit, stringing it
out. Up Hawk Hill, we tried to put another push in to
string it out again. We had about 14 with us at that point.
Colin, Matt, Mike, and Miles moved to the front which made
me nervous for some reason but it probably was just their
intimidating matching fights. We worked as a group for 
awhile pushing fairly hard on the uphills until we reached
Prairie Creek where our group had shrunk to 7. I heard
that Colin had broken a pole and Brent Knight had given
his to Colin. Nice guy! 

A little while after this while taking some of our feeds,
Patrick Johnson got quite a lead by the first preem. We
chased him down and the group got back together about 3k
later. A little tired from chasing, Patrick continued to
lead until Frostbite Flats where I took over and led the
group to the next preem. At the preem, Matt Gelso and I were
together and decided we should go for it. We switched off
leads for the next 5km and then with 500m to go I thought I
better not chance it with the 2005 Junior National Skate
Sprint Champion and went for it early. It was enough to hold
him off.

I'm very happy with the result. I've been feeling really good
this year. I love coming back to Sun Valley because of the
people and the Nordic culture that surrounds the town. It is
something I'd love to see in my hometown of Vail someday.

Thanks again for putting on such a stellar race and helping
keep athletes like myself and SVSEF athletes out on the trails
by putting cash in our pockets. It really makes THE difference!
