Rock, soul and funk

When the quality of service matters...

The Fox Street Allstars bring their new album tour to Vail on March 8, fresh off a whirlwind tour around the country. Photo special to SneakPEAK.

Denver-based Fox Street Allstars rock Vail’s Shakedown Bar on the heels of a new album release. SneakPEAK staff report.

T

he big sounds of Denver’s Fox Street All-Stars are coming to Vail Village next week with a March 8 performance at the fittingly named Shakedown Bar on Bridge Street. The concert will come on the heels of the band’s new album, “Tough Talk,” which was just released on Feb. 26. Concertgoers will have a chance to buy the new album at the door with their ticket for an additional $7, more than half off the price of the new album in the band’s merchandise booth. Their brand of funky roots rock is something you might expect to find in New Orleans or Austin, not the Colorado mountains, but the group has amassed a dedicated following and have become known for their rollicking performances. “Tough Talk” was recorded over the summer of 2012 at Scanhope Sound in Littleton. The album features Joe Tatton of The New Mastersounds on organ, piano from Bill Mckay and pedal steel by Grammy-award-winner John Macy and The Black Swans on backup vocals. The album is a rich roller coaster of roadhouse blues with a super-sized helping of funk, rock and soul. “It’s been an incredible last two years,” says frontman Jonathan Huvard. “This second album has been a long time in the making, and we’re very proud of the results. We think it has a more mature and full sound and is a terrific reflection of where we are now as a band.” The rest of the group is rounded out by James Dumm on vocals and guitar, Eric Low on drums, Dave Solzberg on bass and vocals and Chris Speasmaker on keyboard and vocals. The group has spent the past year playing all over the

country, headlining 20 shows in a 24 day span, and Huvard says the band has been refined from the experience. “To see our New Year’s Eve show in Jackson, Wyo., at the Pink Garter Theatre sell out in advance was a great feeling going into 2013. We expect this will be a big year for us,” he says. Make no mistake; the Fox Street Allstars (FSAS) reek of the roadhouses and West Texas honky-tonks of the Deep South that inspired their signature sound. The band brings an all-out-party to every show by pouring their hearts and souls into every note. No one really has any idea where frontman Huvard channels his soulful, whiskey soaked vocals and

frenetic stage presence, but the result is a blistering powerhouse of sound. If their opening slots on multiple national tours with funk legends The New Mastersounds are any indication, the FSAS are a band that hopes to break into the mainstream at any moment.

The

half pi pe

Amazon

At nearly 30, Kelly Clark eyes gold at the nation’s longest-running pro snowboard competition. Interviewed by Phil Lindeman

K

elly Clark is nothing short of a modern-day Amazon.

For nearly 15 years, the Vermont native has consistently dominated the women’s halfpipe circuit, racking up more high-profile podium finishes than fellow American heavyweights Hannah Teter and Gretchen Bleiler combined. Clark boasts eight Winter X Games medals, four U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix titles, more than a dozen World Snowboard Tour victories and three Winter Olympics appearances, including a gold-medal run in 2002 at 18 years old.

Burton U.S. Open schedule

After three decades on the East Coast, the U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships come to Vail.

After 15 years, Kelly Clakr, the world’s most decorated female snowboarder still brings power, style and spunk to U.S. Open. See her compete in Vail this weekend. Adam Moran photo. The litany of wins aside, here’s where that Amazon part comes in: Clark has never faced a lackluster season or career-ending injury, proving beyond a doubt that women riders can go as big as the men. And it started with the Burton U.S. Open, where a pre-teen Clark grew up watching legends like Shannon Dunn, Barrett Christy and Anne Molin Kongsgaard stomp then-revolutionary backside 540s and switch 360s. Today, female competitors throw back-to-back 720s and frontside 900s with frightening regularity, but only after Clark has landed them first and moved on to the next trick. At 29 years old, her love for snowboarding is still palpable – she talks about the sport with a sort of humble yet spunky charm – and she’s now a bona fide legend in her own right. The U.S. Open celebrates its 31st birthday this year in style, moving from its longtime home of Stratton, Vt. to Golden Peak in Vail. Clark comes to reclaim gold after a secondplace finish at the 2012 event – her only defeat last season. Fresh off an FIS World Cup win in Sochi, Clark found time during a 30-hour return trip to chat with SneakPEAK about the U.S. Open’s new home, her ever-growing legacy and the simple joy of cleaning fish tanks in her free time. SneakPEAK: This year is the first time in decades the U.S. Open won’t be held in Stratton, which isn’t far from your hometown of Dover. It’s almost like the end of an era. Are you sad to see the Open change venues? Kelly Clark: I think that saying it is “the end of an era” is the best way to put it. I grew up attending the Open as a spectator long before I ever competed. It was influential in me wanting to become a competitive snowboarder. I hope that with the Open being in Vail, it continues to be that inspiration to the local youth. I will miss having it on the East Coast, but I am excited at the same time to see what new identity the event takes in Vail. SP: Colorado riders are a bit spoiled – when we don’t have powder, we get cranky. Did growing up with hit-or-miss East Coast conditions make you a better pipe athlete? KC: Yes, the conditions are different in the East than they are in Colorado, but more than anything, I think it is the terrain options you have that make it different. On the East Coast,

~„‚ÛDYafÛJlÛÝÛ<\oYj\kÛIan]joYdcÛÝÛ~‡¤ƒÛDgf¤JYlÛÝۆ„‡¤†ƒ¤„††‚


All eyes on Ayumu Hirano Catching up with one of the youngest halfpipe sensations By Melanie Wong Decorated pros such as Kelly Clark and Shaun White might be in the spotlight at Vailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Burton U.S. Open this week, but there are some serious up-and-comers who might just steal the show. One of these new, young talents is Japanese snowboarder Ayumu Hirano, who at the age of 14, is already besting much more experienced riders in the halfpipe. In fact, at Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s X Games in Aspen, he was the surprise silver medalist behind Shaun White. The pint-sized powerhouse has already been hailed as the poster child for the next generation of snowboarding, and is already going as big as the marquee riders with a style all his own. Ayumu, who comes from Murakami, Japan, began snowboarding and skateboarding before he can even remember, following in the footsteps of his brother, 17-year-old Eijyu, also a pro snowboarder. This is the younger Hiranoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut season on the elite pro circuit, and he has spent most of his winter traveling to events across the world and training in Vail with Ski and Snowboard Club Vail coaches Ben Boyd and Elijah Teter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limitless for him,â&#x20AC;? Boyd says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so young. He just loves to snowboard and loves to go big. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really good at picking up concepts with snowboarding and putting them into practice. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coach, to be honest.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been making an impression ever since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come stateside. In fact, he first got noticed when he poached the halfpipe competition at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. Open, after winning the youth jam. In competition, Ayumu is known for being completely unflappable, even after taking a big spill during a practice run at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s X Games. Instead of falling apart, he worked his way back up with each successive run. On the hits that mattered, he launched out of the pipe with pop and a precision that made him an audience favorite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just thinking about how to get amplitude and thinking about my landings,â&#x20AC;? Ayumu says through a translator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about too much when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m snowboarding.â&#x20AC;? Even with his impressive finish, Ayumu remained softspoken and cool, preferring to let his shredding do all the talking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were ecstatic,â&#x20AC;? says Boyd of the silver-medal finish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty cool competitor, but that definitely got him to smile.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I was happy with the X Games,â&#x20AC;? Ayumu adds, grinning. Fresh off a practice session in Vailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s halfpipe earlier this week, the Japanese phenom says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got big plans for this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to win,â&#x20AC;? he says earnestly, without any hint of arrogance and a small smile.

Watch for him training and competing in Vail with Ski and Snowboard Club Vail coaches this season. Zach Mahone photo. Of course, Ayumuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is no normal life for a high school freshman. When asked what one thing heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to bring from Japan, he answers simply, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A friend.â&#x20AC;? Ayumu will get a chance to catch up with friends and family later this season, when he returns home to compete in the Japanese Snowboarding Championship. That event, along with a handful of others, may catapult him into even bigger competitions next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got basically a few races to qualify him for the World Cup next year,â&#x20AC;? Boyd says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not old enough yet to compete in the Olympics, but that would be the next challenge for us to tackle.â&#x20AC;?

questions with

Hannah Teter A chat with the Olympic medalist and snowboarding golden girl. Interviewed by Melanie Wong

C

hances are youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of Hannah Teter.

The blonde haired, bright-eyed 26-year-old is a two-time Olympic medalist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including gold at Torino, Italy in 2006 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and has racked up various medals and wins at the X Games, the Burton U.S. Open and more. Growing up in a snowboarding family in Vermont, Teter seemed somewhat destined for amplitude greatness. Considered one of the seasoned pros on the circuit, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paved the way for other girls, becoming the first female snowboarder to land a 900 in competition in 2011 at the age of 15, and then becoming the youngest member of the U.S. Snowboarding team the next season. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involved in several philanthropic efforts, including her own nonprofit, Hannahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gold, which raises money for Kenyan schools and water treatment through her own Vermont maple syrup. Last season was a change for Teter, who only made one appearance at the Burton U.S. Open. However, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back in force, and will be in Vail to help christen the Openâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new location. Fans of Teter will get a chance to meet her off the slopes as well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be at the expo tent of U.S. Open sponsor Shiseido. The skincare company will be giving out free skin protection samples, and Teter will be on hand for a signing. SneakPEAK fired off some quick questions for Teter before she took to Vailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slopes for competition. SneakPEAK: How did you start snowboarding and competing? Hannah Teter: I started snowboarding because my older brothers got me into it. I would follow them around skat-

Teter will be making a signing appearance at the tent of U.S. Open sponsor Shiseido during the USO weekend.

Catch her Friday, March 1st from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so excited to hang with Shiseido this week,â&#x20AC;? Teter says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love all of their sun products, but my favorites are probably the Sun Protection Stick Foundation SPF 35 and the Sun Protection Lip Treatment SPF36 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both offer great coverage and portability.â&#x20AC;?

Hannah Teter, two time Olympic medalist, competes in Vailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s halfpipe this weekend. Adam Moran photo. SP: You took gold at the Torino Olympics. What does that feel like to win a gold medal? HT: That was an awesome feeling. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really sink in, what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done, until we were in the car flying down the mountain with a nine-vehicle police escort toward the awards ceremony. SP: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re involved with several charitable projects, including raising money for breast cancer awareness and support for villages in Kenya. Why did you get involved with these projects? HT: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had an affinity toward helping others. It was how I was raised, and I feel like we all have an obligation to help those who are less fortunate than we are. Our underwear project, Sweet Cheeks, is our latest endeavor. (Large portions of profits from the underwear line help kids in extreme poverty through the nonprofit Children International. Check it out at www.sweetcheekspanties.com.) Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing some exciting things with that. SP: Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this about you having your own Ben and Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ice cream flavor?

It got me excited to improve my skills and actually compete against other riders. My first big contest that I did well at was the U.S. Open. SP: How do you anticipate the competition to be at Vail? Who should we watch out for? HT: This event is going to be insane. Burton knows how to throw a contest and provide a setting that allows the gnarliest riding to be thrown down. Keep an eye out for young rippers like Ayumu Hirano and Arielle Gold. SP: How has the season gone for you so far, and what are your goals for the rest of the season? HT: The season has gone OK. I hurt my shoulder before SneakPEAK editor Melanie Wong can be reached at the X Games, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a slow start. I did alright in Aspen Melanie@sneakpeakvail.com and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping to pull out some good riding here in Vail.

Late Night

9:30 - Close Family and friends of Edwards resident Cindy Petrehn, 58, celebrated her life last week at a memorial ceremony held at the EagleVail Pavilion. Petrehn, who unexpectedly passed away Feb. 10, was described as an amazing woman, mother, friend, daughter, sister and artist. Her passing has brought an overwhelming amount of support and love from friends and family around the world. Cindy was born in Clinton, Iowa, to John and Jacelyn Petrehn and grew up surrounded by her nine brothers and one sister in Kansas City. Cindy completed her fine arts degree at Pittsburgh State University, and it was there she won her first photo competition. From that moment forward, she knew photography was her calling. Cindy moved to the Vail Valley in 1978 and turned her love of photography into a business. She spent many years capturing intriguing images of people, events, nature and anything that caught her creative eye. Cindy was an enthusiastic mother to her son, Michael, and daughter, Toni, both raised in the Vail Valley, and was like a second mother to all of their friends. She taught them love, kindness, compassion for others and encouraged them to follow their dreams. Cindy was a licensed hot air balloon pilot, the official photographer for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, and a member of Women in Aviation and The Balloon Federation of America. Her adventurous spirit brought her all over the world to places like Japan, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada, Switzerland, France, Ireland and more. She was always in search of her next great adventure and her next amazing photo. Through her photography, Cindy shared the beauty of the world, ballooning and the open skies with all. Her smile and radiant personality will be missed by all and memories of her will be held closely. In lieu of flowers, The Cindy Petrehn Memorial Fund has been established for those wishing to contribute: The Cindy Petrehn Memorial Fund, Firstbank of Colorado, 105 Edwards Village Blvd., P.O.

Getting girls on wheels

Foos and Brews event supports nonprofit The Cycle Effect By Phil Lindeman Local trainer and coach Brett Donelson knows that when you have a good idea, roll with it. For the past two years, Donelson and his wife, professional mountain-bike racer Tamara Donelson, have coached a mountain-bike team for underprivileged teenage girls in Eagle County. Dubbed Ellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angels, the participants were privy to professional coaching from the Donelsons, brandnew bikes from California-based Ellsworth, custom pinkand-black uniforms, and entry in the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular town series races â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all with no previous cycling experience. But nearly from the beginning, Brett Donelson knew the idea was wild enough to sustain itself and make waves beyond the Eagle River Valley. Sponsor The Youth Foundation did a pitch-perfect job of linking the program with a handful of its most in-need teens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it started with about 20 or so participants from Battle Mountain High School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yet the cool, hip mountain-bike squad quickly attracted more attention than it could handle. The program had to grow, and as with any burgeoning nonprofit, that required cash and a certain amount of cultural cache. Enter The Cycle Effect, the Donelsonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new nonprofit and a natural progression of the Ellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angels mission. The organization hopes to be bigger, better and badder than its small-time counterpart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which also included yoga, all with the goal of empowering participants through the larger â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girl PowHERâ&#x20AC;? initiative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the founders have no doubt it will catch on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be going off and doing our own thing if we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe this would work,â&#x20AC;? Brett Donelson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls have already proved the importance of the program. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the new kid on the block, and we really just need to let people know about what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. These girls deserve the attention of the public.â&#x20AC;? And now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for that public to support the fast-growing program. On March 8, The Cycle Effect holds its first fundraiser, intriguingly titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Foos and Brews,â&#x20AC;? at the Wes-

Find works from these out-ofthe-box jewelry artists in Vail. By Nell Davis.

agle County has no shortage of talented artists, and jewelry designers are no exception. From locals creating out-of-the-box designs to prominent New Yorkers bringing their celebrated work to local galleries, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to find wearable art made by masters of the craft.

(a J. Cotter favorite, some even come with feathers) to amethyst rings set in concrete, Cotter’s work is distinctive, fun and unexpected. Cotter says he feels fortunate to have his workspace in Minturn, a big space where he can work on jewelry, welding and wood pieces alike. “I have a lot of different personalities in my work, and I never know quite what’s going to happen when I walk through the door. I am so lucky that I get to go to work and play all day,” he says. In a world where true originality is a rarity, Cotter’s exotic jewelry is a result of his drive to keep his work fresh. “I don’t ever try to copy anything I see,” he says. “There was an artist who said ‘We are all visual bandits.’ It’s hard to be original. I just try not to let tradition get in the way of creativity, and be true to my own vision.” Visit Cotter’s galleries in Vail and Beaver Creek or go to www.jcottergallery.com to see his work.

Jim Cotter’s unusual pairings Diamonds and concrete, river rocks and steel, sterling silver and state quarters... these might not be combinations that immediately come to mind when you think jewelry, but for Jim Cotter, of J. Cotter Galleries in Vail and Beaver Creek, unusual materials inspire him to create beautiful, one-of-a kind pieces at his studio in Minturn. Cotter is primarily self-taught, having taken only a couple of jewelry classes in college. He has been able to make a living from his art from the start of his career. Besides jewelry, he is also a painter and sculptor. “It’s worked out extremely well,” he says. “I was very fortunate to get recognized as the guy in the 1970s who used a different approach. It was a smart move, even though I didn’t know it at the time.” Today, people all over the world seek after Cotter’s designs. He is also a local’s favorite. “I have a great audience here with the locals, and I am fortunate to have people here to be a sounding board for trying out new designs,” he says. “I think of my work as being like a scientist. You’re always experimenting, trying new approaches. Some work, and some don’t. You just have to stay motivated and keep at it.” From sterling silver rings and earrings shaped like masks

Tana Stewart’s pottery in jewelry Part time Vail resident Tana Stewart learned the craft of jewelry making in her second home, Japan, where she became Master Potter (meaning she is regarded as “grandchild apprentice of National Living Treasure Shoji Hamada”). “My Japanese mentor is a rather famous potter who uses his pottery in the making of fine jewelry. His example inspired me, and he assisted me to bring my jewelry into recognition in the Japanese market,” she says. She now splits her time between Vail with her husband Bill, and at her home studio in the Japanese mountains. Stewart uses a mix of techniques and materials to create her delicate and natural pieces. “I use high-fired porcelain and stoneware clays enhanced by China paint designs, and silver and gold over glaze painting. My designs are an extension of my pottery, based on designs from the nature I enjoy around me, particularly wild flowers,” she says. Stewart takes inspiration from outside her front door, both in Japan and in Vail. “My home studio in the Japan Alps sits in a meadow area surrounded by endless varieties of wild plants. They are equally matched with Colorado’s high country flora,” she says. “My job is to absorb what nature around me stimulates. I strive to make each piece unique from another in size and shape. The idea of embedding ceramic pieces in silver for jewelry is not unique (the Chinese have done it for centuries), but it’s not been that common in the West.” Stewart says her collections are ideal for people “who appreciate the simple quality of fine silver, joined together with easy-to-wear designs in porcelain.” To view Stewart’s work, visit her website at iriyamayaki. com.

Looking into the future of energy Vail Global Energy Forum returns, bringing top experts By Melanie Wong How do you supply affordable, sustainable and reliable energy for a growing world? Is it even possible? If so, how close are we? These are all questions that an impressive group of scientists, industry experts and politicians will tackle at the second-annual Vail Global Energy Forum this weekend. The event, hosted at Beaver Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vilar Center, features speakers such as Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, founder and CEO of C3 Energy Tom Siebel, former U.S. Department of Energy research director Arun Majumdar, New Mexico Senator Jeff Bingaman, Stanford geophysicist Mark Zoback, and Halliburtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim Brown, among others. If you find this gathering of the whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who in the energy world next to the ski slopes odd, consider this: Colorado is simultaneously one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major energy-producing states and one of the most environmentally conscious. That was why Forum founders â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which include the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director Carl Colby, Jay Precourt of the Stanford University Precourt Institute for Energy, James Sweeney of Stanford and other influential local businesspeople and leaders â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thought an energy forum might gain momentum in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought we should do a forum on a big issue that would bring powerful and intellectual dialogue to the valley,â&#x20AC;? says Colby, a documentary filmmaker and part-time local resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And not to push a point of view, but generate dialogue about some of the most important issues of the day. We thought that energy and the economy is something that is going to be with us and relevant for at least the next 25 years.â&#x20AC;?

will get the chance to hear about these topics straight from the decision makers, the inventors of tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s technology, and the most innovative minds in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic and scientific worlds. It beats reading about renewable energy in a couple paragraphs from a magazine, he says. There seems to be a growing core interest as well. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural forum brought 350 people, and this year, early sales for the event have already topped 420. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be dull and academic,â&#x20AC;? Colby says of the weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of Q and Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, lots of social events, a kick-off dinner, and packages range from $65 for a day to a full weekend for $200, including meals for two days.â&#x20AC;?

Huskies take to the field

Battle Mountain ladies soccer kicks off new season By John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill The Battle Mountain High School girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team is quick to take the elephant out of the room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boys inspired us to train hard, to be committed,â&#x20AC;? says Melinda Vickers, a junior at BMHS who plays in goal for the Huskies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team had a lot of success in their last season,â&#x20AC;? says Rosie Davies, a senior who bounces between the front and middle lines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a strong team, a really close-knit group who knew how to play together.â&#x20AC;? And, finally, Alli Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a senior outside midfielder â&#x20AC;&#x201C; chimed in, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the boys really united our school. We have a lot to live up to.â&#x20AC;? The BMHS girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team took to the field on Monday for their first official practice of the 2013 season. The squad is eyeing up some big results this year following the spectacular undefeated season and state championship the boys brought home in the fall. In the right direction The girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team, of course, is a completely different squad that comes from an entirely different mold than the boys. Head Coach Dave Cope hones in the comparative talk of the boys and girls team, assuring that the teams are different, but adding that much could be taken from the storied boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough thing to compare the two,â&#x20AC;? Cope says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, it is a great motivation and very strong inspiration. The girls could be a strong team this year.â&#x20AC;? For the girls, even on the first day of practice, there was talk of their goals: a possible league title and run in the playoffs standing out as the most desirable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won a league title since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in high school,â&#x20AC;? Vickers says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to get that under my belt.â&#x20AC;? Davies says she would like to see the team do well at playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made it to playoffs last year and my freshman year. I think it would be awesome to play out of the first round of playoffs,â&#x20AC;? she says. Indeed the girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team has been building in a positive direction. In 2011 the girls did not make playoffs and finished third in the league. In 2012 they finished second to Glenwood Springs in the league, made it to playoffs, but lost in the first round. Officially, the Huskies finished with a record of 10-5-1 last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The overall direction of the group has been improving,â&#x20AC;? says coach Cope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting back to playoffs last year was a good thing. It was a big motivation to start moving forward.â&#x20AC;? Digging out talent On Monday, despite playing on a snow-crusted field, the

The Battle Mountain High School girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team kicked off their 2013 season on snowy fields. The team has lofty goals for the coming season, including making the playoffs and maybe besting regional powerhouse Glenwood Springs. Zach Mahone photo. sun was out and the girls were in high spirits. Most of the team had been playing regularly throughout the winter at the WECMRD Field House in Edwards on indoor league teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all try to do indoor soccer every winter,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said after practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even when we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go outside, we are still playing games with each other. Even today it was cool to see how everyone has improved. Some girls have improved immensely.â&#x20AC;? The improvement that girls have made since the 2012 season will be crucial if the team hopes to find success in 2013. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead scorer in 2012, Logan Nash â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who had 19 goals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is out for the season with a knee injury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question mark really comes out on this,â&#x20AC;? Cope says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big question is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where can we replace those goals?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look into the team for some people to really step up.â&#x20AC;? Cope predicts the team will be solid on defense, as most of their defenders will return this year. Cope is also confident that their own goal will be well protected with solid keepers such as Vickers. Looking to the offense, Cope points to Davies as a leader whom he thinks can pull in some points this season. Also, sophomore Molly Phannenstiel, Morgan Croke and Allie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien are players who could find the back of the net this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like this year we have a lot of talent on the

SneakSPORTS: Making headlines

The best teams donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always get the best media coverage Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Note: Minturnbased sports fan Patrick Whitehurst writes for www. fanrag.com. Read his musings on the site or in SneakPEAK. What makes a better sports story -- steady, solid team play or drama followed by defeat in the highest degree? Leading to the buildup for Patrick Whitehurst the Daytona 500, coverage revolved around a certain rookie on the Sprint Cup circuit. Most years a feature on a driver making their debut at Daytona would be lucky to find the back pages, but Danica Patrick is no ordinary rookie. The former Indy racer and GoDaddy poster girl has appeared in Super Bowl commercials and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. And while she has won only one race in her career (the 2008 Indy Japan 300) she is an instant draw in the racing world and a network ratings superstar. After winning the pole in Daytona, Danica Patrick received the bulk of the attention centered on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Great American Race.â&#x20AC;? There was little mention of reigning Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski or the man many believe to be the greatest driver alive, five-time series champ Jimmie Johnson. Even fan favorite Dale Earnhardt, Jr., whose father Dale, Sr., was killed on Daytonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s track in 2001, took a backseat to Danica mania. When a 12-car crash on Saturday during the Nationwide Series injured 33 spectators at Daytona, Danica was out of the headlines for a short while. When Jimmie Johnson won the 500 on Sunday, he was given the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due and a brief spotlight during the trophy presentation. Almost immediately afterwards all the talk shifted back to grading Danicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance -- did she hold her own? Was this a victory for her and the sport? Is finishing eighth (Patrick entered the final lap in third place) the new first? I was immediately reminded of the scene in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Fockersâ&#x20AC;? when Robert De

Niroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character finds all of the participation ribbons Greg had earned in his youth and wonders why in the world his parents would even keep them. I had to remind myself that winning teams and top performers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always make the biggest waves -- there are several examples of this right now in the sports world. Days after the Ravens won the Super Bowl, the discussion shifted to what the 49ers could expect in return for trading backup QB Alex Smith, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even play in the game. Two non-playoff teams became the center of attention as the Jets and Cowboys dominated the headlines for doing nothing more than being really good at losing in big markets year after year. The NBA is a star-studded league and the big market teams and players get the most press. Ask anyone right now to name the top stories or issues in the NBA and the list will look something like this. LeBron James and the Heat tearing through the Eastern Conference and any number of L.A. Lakers headlines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including fighting for their playoff lives, brewing conflicts between Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, who said what on Twitter, and if the system preferred by coach Mike Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni can work. LeBron James and the Miami Heat (who as of press time had won 11 straight games) donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get as much press as the fledgling Lakers, but they find far and away more coverage than the best team in the NBA -- the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs own the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best record and have two

future Hall of Famers in Tony Parker (the one player not named LeBron capable of winning the MVP) and Tim Duncan (the best power forward ever) yet people barely know they exist in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NBA. San Antonio isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big market, the Spurs players donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t squabble with each other, the head coach doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call out his players and the team in general doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause any drama. What the Spurs do is all of the things needed to win consistently. San Antonio rebounds and plays solid defense, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take possessions off, and they get consistent production from their bench. The Spurs might not be the most exciting team to watch, but they are the classiest in the NBA. Has anyone outside of Chicago noticed how good the Blackhawks are this season?! Maybe as a sports society weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re content with the fact that hockey is back and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care too much until the Stanley Cup playoffs begin. Take the time to watch Marian Hossa, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane play on a nightly basis, and you will witness hockey at its peak. In a few short weeks, millions of Americans will be filling out March Madness brackets with 2013 frontrunners like Indiana, Kansas, Duke, Michigan State and Syracuse winning it all. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to go out on a limb and pick lesserknown teams like Gonzaga (currently ranked second behind Indiana) or Butler to cut the nets down. Remember, just because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dominate the headlines doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best.

Town’s 20/20 event lifts local spirits, looks ahead By Phil Lindeman For the first time in half a decade, the Eagle community can see light at the end of a foreboding economic tunnel. Or maybe black hole is a better metaphor. When the national economy began a steady decline in 2008, the downvalley portions of Eagle County were hit the hardest and most consistently, mirroring the financial woes of many small and mid-sized American cities. In a community built around full-time residents, foreclosure rates quadrupled and struggling construction professionals were forced to move elsewhere, while retail space in the revamped Eagle Ranch area went on the market just a few months too late. Tenants were scared by the prospect of buying in the midst of a bona fide depression, and property owners were left sitting on empty – and expensive – real estate. Eagle’s economic troubles sat in stark contrast to the relative comfort of ski-resort neighbors like Vail and, to a lesser extent, Avon. Prosperity would be an exaggeration – the transitional up-valley towns saw dwindling sales tax revenue and a slight dip in skier visits – but by and large, the heft of Vail Resorts kept locals and tourists relatively insulated from the brunt of the damage. During the course of this multi-year downturn, the nation as a whole looked inward – a necessity for overburdened families, but practically the kiss of death for a mountain community so closely linked to tourism. In Eagle, where town officials have struggled to capitalize on highly localized outdoor resources like mountain-bike trails, a newfound term in the vein of “staycation” was nearly a dirty word. Late last year, Eagle Mayor Yuri Kostick did a bit of looking inward himself – and he liked what he saw happening in Eagle. Kostick, who took office in fall, put together a list of 24 events, changes and developments the town can be proud of, most of which show how things are finally getting better. Unfortunately, when Kostick first presented the list, it was at a meeting of the town’s board of trustees, and very few people beyond the board heard it. One of the few was Chris Romer, president and chief operating officer of valley-wide advocacy group Vail Valley Partnership, and he knew the info would lift community spirits. Last Wednesday’s Eagle Vision 20/20 event, a bi-annual economic presentation and awards ceremony, seemed to Romer like the perfect outlet. For the first time, it took the feel and vibe of an old-school “town hall” meeting, with Kostick, Romer and Jim Ash of host organization Eagle Chamber of Commerce. And like Kostick with the original list, attendees liked what they heard: a growing population, a steady decline in foreclosures, a relatively low unemploy-

aware of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening, and I think they realize no one town is a micro-economy around here. We all coexist.â&#x20AC;? Fast times Before Romer made his presentation, Kostick addressed the crowd with his same list of 24-some-odd positive steps that the town is taking to emerge from the depression stronger and more economically sound. Many focused on growing town programs, such as the just-approved Eagle River Station development, $20 million worth of improvements to Eby Creek Road, a new retirement community that promises to create 60 jobs and renewed excitement about retail space in the Eagle Ranch village area. The most exciting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and most warmly received â&#x20AC;&#x201C; program is Eagle Outside. The initiative, unveiled last summer, is the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first cohesive, spirited attempt to make the most of trails and recreation areas within a short drive of downtown. For years, locals have known about the stellar, but confusing mountain bike trail system. Coupled with a lack of promotion, residents often saw the town miss out on tourism to neighbors like Fruita and Moab. Along with the town, the Eagle Chamber has played an integral role in bringing Eagle Outside to life. The main goal was building a clean, easy-to-use website with accurate trail info and a simple interface to link local recreation, lodging and dining. In some respects, the site mirrors the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own renewed vision â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it dealt with roughly $100,000 in debt during the nationwide depression â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and board president Ash was glad to see Kostick explain how successful Eagle Outside has been. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really working with the town to drive the recreation angle in Eagle,â&#x20AC;? Ash says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the next few years, I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see people turn off the highway in Eagle instead of going to those towns a few more hours down the road. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really noticed a high level of enthusiasm in the community lately. That can only be a good thing.â&#x20AC;? Another talking point for Kostick and the chamber was the promising number of new and growing businesses in Eagle. Local brewmeisters Bonfire Brewing opened a midsized production brewery last fall, purchasing an empty warehouse on the east end of town while still serving beers at their popular downtown taproom. Other recent additions (and nominees for the chamber â&#x20AC;&#x153;Business of the Yearâ&#x20AC;? award) include Drift Innovation, a GoPro camera competitor that just opened offices in Eagle Ranch, and several new day spas founded by experienced local â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think businesses are to the point where they feel comfortable going out on a limb and taking some risks again,â&#x20AC;? Ash says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see a healthy number of new businesses coming to town and setting up shop. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re even seeing new construction, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen in a few years.â&#x20AC;?

one major concern is the Eagle Airport, which has seen a steep drop in bookings and tenants in the past few years. The airport experienced a 27-percent drop in capacity, a rough blow for one of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest and most important employers. As Romer points out, the airportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downward trend reflects the air-travel industry as a whole. His talk used the airport to give a better idea of how closely linked Eagle is to the rest of the Central Rocky Mountain region and state as a whole, even as residents tend to see the town as more independent than Vail or Avon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to make sure our valley and our community are involved with the larger, wide-ranging economic efforts across the state,â&#x20AC;? Romer says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That helps us really see the locals trends and how they relate to the state as a whole.â&#x20AC;?

Not there yet Despite the positive trends, the down-valley economy hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made a complete recovery. Romer of VVP says the

HOOKED –––––––––––––––––––––––– cakes and béarnaise sauce. Romanin is also unafraid to introduce his diners to exotic fish – his wares come from vendors all over the country, flown in fresh almost daily. He also gets a bi-weekly shipment from Japan, a “mystery box” of seafood straight from the market. The shipments include things like Japanese flying fish and sea robin. Romanin admits he’s constantly receiving fish he’s never seen or heard of before, but enjoys the challenge of preparing what arrives. Ask about the specials and enjoy them while they last, as the restaurant typically sells out of specialty items within a couple days.

with a bit of added heat from a slice of Serrano chili. Then there are rolls and sashimi, all expertly crafted (no messy rolls that fall apart on your chopsticks) with crisp flavors and the freshest fish. Then there’s the “U-Call-It” menu that allows diners to choose a protein from the day’s selections, cooked a number of ways. You can get your selection panseared, steamed, prepared on the grill, baked in a parchment envelope, flame broiled and more. Up on the blackboards, you’ll also find ever-changing “Off the Hook” specials, which range from unique rolls to unusual cuts of sashimi. Even classic seafood dishes get the creative treatment at Hooked. The clam chowder is exceptional and unconventional. Forget the typical heavy, creamy version – Romanin forgoes the cream and instead uses milk and clam broth, and big mouthfuls of seafood are complimented by San Francisco sourdough bread. The calamari is fried in a crunchy buffalo-sauce batter that adds a tangy spice to the golden nuggets. As a nod to complete indulgence, the menu also features one of Romanin’s most original specialties, a dish he whipped up one day while he was “bored at the restaurant.” The Crimpster is the “turducken of the sea” – a savory combo of lobster, shrimp and crab, all wrapped in bacon and fried. Every side is tantalizing as well, with roasted acorn squash and bacon Brussels sprouts if you want a break from seafood. But why would you, when you can have a taste of the sea right here in the mountains?

Off the Hook Hooked takes a no-holds-barred approach to food presentation – seeing your dishes arrive is almost as fun as eating them. The selection of fish changes every couple of days, so your waiter will bring a slate board with the raw fish specialties (sometimes head and all) to your table to introduce the available selections. The Snapper Duo – not on the menu, but touted by the restaurant staff nonetheless – presents the fish cooked two ways. On one side of the plate is snapper sashimi, clean and frosted. The other side is half the fish (head end), flash fried so it’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The menu is a bit confounding and cluttered, but Hooked is a very hands-on experience, and the wait staff is more than happy to offer some explanation. Here’s how it breaks down: There are typical appetizers, like salads and soups. There are smaller, cold dishes, such as fresh oyster shooters or raw SneakPEAK editor Melanie Wong can be reached at slivers of snapper in a little cucumber and cilantro wrapping, Melanie@sneakpeakvail.com

lowed oil companies to tap into levels of rock never before accessible. However, the drilling could also bring environmental and health dangers, and there are concerns about the vast amounts of water used in the process. “That’s why we brought in Jim Brown of Halliburton to explain how do they do it, how do they handle water, and discuss what are the problems,” Colby says. “Hickenlooper is coming, and he’ll have to thread the needle – he’ll talk about how to create enough energy for a very environmentally aware state, and how to create strong and fair legislation to regulate these processes. Then there’s Mark Zoback, a geophysicists who has testified before Congress on this topic.” Colby thinks the conversation will go far beyond the surface pros and cons. It may also explore the possibility that fracking could be a viable alternative to fossil fuels, as well as lessen U.S. dependence on foreign oil. “Personally, my biggest overall concern (regarding this topic) is in security and independence. We used to import so much fuel, and really, any fossil fuel isn’t sustainable. We’re from across the world and buying it from people who aren’t very friendly,” Colby says. “However, if we can do this (fracking) even within 15 to 20 years from now, that’s a watershed change. It could lead to energy independence.” Other speakers are just as captivating, albeit on less hot-

button topics. Tom Siebel of C3 leads the world in the energy-software management business, essentially paving the way for how energy will be distributed in the future. Other businessmen will speak on the realities of investing in renewable energies. And what of other renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind energy? Are they still financially realistic? The speakers will address that, too. Two Stanford behavioral experts will talk about the human side of energy as well, looking at big-picture questions like how do we change people’s attitudes, how can individuals become more energy efficient and when will the tide turn to make efficiency the American norm? Colby compares current attitudes to recent shifts in cigarette smoking. “Just 30 years ago, sitting at a restaurant, everyone would be smoking cigarettes, even if they knew it was bad for you,” he says. “Today, no one really does. What happened? Why did people change? It’s a crude example, but similar. There are thousands of small things that people can do to be more energy efficient. Part of it is seeing people behave better, and what it will take to do that.” SneakPEAK editor Melanie Wong can be reached at melanie@sneakpeakvail.com

we simply donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the amount of snow or have the mountains that are found elsewhere, and in turn, their efforts can go into building pipes and parks. When kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the freeriding options, they spend most of their time in the park. I think that is why there are so many good riders that come out of the East. SP: It seems like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won every major pipe event imaginable. Has it been hard to stay at the top of a sport thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constantly evolving? KC: Yes, it is hard to remain successful over such a long period of time, but that is also one of the things that motivates me. You can never be the best snowboarder. The sport is always changing and progressing, and in order to remain on top, you have to change and progress with it. I love being continually challenged â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I think that is why I still love it after 15 years on the circuit. SP: What goes through your mind right before taking a run, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a World Cup qualifier or the U.S. Open? KC: We look like risk takers, but in reality, we are calculated risk takers. Everything is very planned out, but by the time you get to your competition run, you have done all the work. It is easy to be reactionary, but I have never been one to make decisions based on what is going on around me. I stick to the plan. Many things fight for our attention, and you can never lose focus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be dropping in think-

ing about my binding or thinking about what it will be like to win. I need to stay focused on the process and that will lead to the right outcome. SP: Along with riders like Torah Bright and Hannah Teter, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve pushed womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s halfpipe to the limits. How has the field changed for the better (or worse) over the years? KC: Thank you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is an honor to shape and lead a sport. I have always thought it is important to do things well and with excellence. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been one to take a shortcut to get ahead, and I like to let my snowboarding speak for itself. I hope in leading by that example, the sport will continue to progress and grow in an authentic way. SP: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming up on your 30th birthday. Any regrets about the way your career came together? KC: I have always had a go for it/all-or-nothing approach. I will do it well or go down trying. That has caused some hardships over the years, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that I have any regrets. I am thankful for all the experiences I have had. Looking back, I know they are what have made me the person I am today. SP: For five or six years now, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very open about your faith. How does religion mix with snowboarding culture? It seems the two can clash, at least on the surface. KC: I have always thought it best to be open and honest about what I believe and what I am about. I have a high

[From page 4]

value for integrity, and I think I should be the same person that I am at home, that I am out in public, at the top and bottom of the halfpipe, winning or losing. That is why I am so open with my faith â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I like to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;what-you-see-is-whatyou-getâ&#x20AC;? type of person. SP: When you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t competing, whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your favorite place to ride? Do you hit the backcountry much? KC: I live in Mammoth Lakes, California, and that is my favorite mountain. If I could plan a dream pow trip, it would be to Hokkaido, Japan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have had some of my best trips there. And yes, I love getting out in the backcountry. I get out there as much as my schedule allows. SP: During the competition season, you hardly have any time off. What do you enjoy doing when you find a free moment? KC: Free moment? What is that? (Laughs.) Things stay pretty busy for me in the winter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have been on the road for almost seven weeks at the moment. But when I do get downtime, I like to play guitar, watch movies, go out to dinner with friends, work on my salt-water fish tankâ&#x20AC;Ś all normal stuff, I think.

CYCLE EFFECT –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

high school teens, they’re talkative after a while – and see first-hand the effect a pro-caliber team has had on their fitness, mental stamina and sense of fun. And this meet-and-greet vibe will be vital: One of Donelson’s main goals is to expand The Cycle Effect into other mountain communities, bringing developmental bike teams to in-need teens in Summit County. With time, it’ll hopefully include areas around Aspen, Steamboat Springs and even the Front Range. “After people saw what was happening with the Ell’s Angels program, a lot of people came to us and wanted the same thing in their communities,” Donelson says. “This new program will really focus on the cycling. Once the bike community hears about what we’re doing, I think the program will really catch on.” Riding into the future As a new nonprofit, The Cycle Effect benefits from an idea that’s both inimitable and proven. Thanks to Ell’s Angels, Donelson knows demand for a larger, more focused squad is high, and he already has the support of several community members. The Cycle Effect board member Vicki Medall knew the Donelsons from training at The Westin. Her husband is a

triathlete, and when the couple heard about plans to expand the Ell’s Angels, the recent North Carolina transplants knew it could succeed. “Brett and Tam have such a strong vision for where they want this to go,” Medall says. “I’m very proud of what they’ve done, and I really know this program will be a success. I’m humble they’ve allowed me to be a part of it.” Along with Medall, The Cycle Effect has one other board member, longtime local Teresa Shay. Both Shay and Medall have experience with other nonprofits – something Donelson knew little about when he dreamt of expansion. “Right now, we don’t know what The Cycle Effect will look like in three years,” Donelson says. “We just know that it will involve high school students riding bikes, realizing there are goals they can reach through fitness they wouldn’t otherwise tackle.” That core idea will always be in place – Donelson says the success of Ell’s Angels is proof – but the most important goal now is making it sustainable and reputable. The team is already one step closer: Bike manufacturer Giant recently stepped in as a sponsor, replacing Ellsworth by promising to supply bikes to every participant. “Grabbing that sponsor was a huge boost for us,” Donelson says. “They get thousands of requests for stuff like this

[From page 9]

every year, and for them to take a chance on us was just another indicator that this could grow and be a huge program.” In terms of recognition, the cornerstone of the nonprofit – high school girls riding bikes as a team – has already made waves at the national level. Ell’s Angels was one of just 30 programs honored in January by the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, a wellness foundation started by former President Bill Clinton. For Donelson, the recognition was yet another boost for the team, which is set to begin practice this spring as soon as weather allows. The Donelsons and team have a lot to prove, but as bona fide cyclists, they’ll save it for the singletrack. “We were rubbing elbows with some of the biggest health leaders in the country,” says Donelson, still a bit awestruck more than a month later. “You hear from friends or people you know that this is a great idea, but being recognized by the initiative gave me a sense of validity, like what we’re doing really is a necessary thing. It seems like such a simple sport, but it really has an inspirational effect.”
