The axe will go to another rider this year. However, Sam Schultz can still win when he wants. At Wednesday #5 he showed the field who was the top dog. He was in a big pack until riders started disappearing. Some were saving their legs for the big show and others had mechanicals. In the end Jessie Doll was the only man left. He took a strong 2nd on the evening.

Last year the UM drum line came out.
Always an interesting array of fans. Matt Shryock shown here uses his vocal cords for the National Anthem and holding down his #1 fan crown.

Zach Guy - 2009
Bruce Johnson - 2010
Mark Knockey - 2010
Anna Dingman - 2010
Justin Cloute - 2010
Travis Monroe - 2010
Chance Cooke 2009 - One of the best two man battles we've seen with Frank and Chance locking horns.
Mike Beltz 2006 - Hopping barriers to victory, Mike was on fire that day and fought from behind to take the win
Lucca Scariano 2008 - The best junior race we've ever had. Scariano and Daniel Sullivan went back and forth all race long.
Amy Frykman 2008 - Epic battle with Krumpleman and Curry. First year we gave away a bike to the ladies. Amy still rides it.
Travis Monroe 2010 - Came out of nowhere to win the category 3 race and was taking lines that the 1,2 men couldn't find.
Besides the Rolling Thunder Champions there's has to be something said for consistency at one of the most un-predictable races in Montana. Toby Meierbachtol and John Curry have the most top tens with 4. Curry was 12th in 2006 and Toby was 15th in 2009.
24 champions, only 6 champions in the elite fields (Curry, Wicks, Frykman, Krieg, Muhlfeld, Schultz)
Add your name to the list.
