After another successful weekend of racing on singletrack, Boulder High School is now two for two in competitive mountain biking.

The school tied Salida for the team competition at this year’s Colorado High School Cycling League finals at Ridgeline Open Space in Castle Rock over the weekend. But after four strong weekends of racing, Boulder High had earned the highest points total and took the overall championship.

“We have a big team,” said coach Ben Boyer. “We have 39 kids who raced — 38 kids? It’s a big team. And we have some of the slowest riders in the state, and some of the fastest, and everything between.”

Salida’s team earned second overall, and Fairview High School took third in the team standings.

Though Boyer spoke of the team’s diversity and depth, there were individual stand-outs as well. Boulder High senior Dominique Fenichell won the overall title for varsity girls; Boyer said it’s only her second season mountain biking.

“She has been just an incredible leader for the last two years on the team,” he said. “She started off last year having never ridden a mountain bike.”

Fenichell was a student in Boyer’s AP Biology class and asked him about the team.

“She’s incredible — she was one of our team captains this year,” he said. “She’s always got a smile on her face and works hard.”

Junior varsity girls rider McCauley Smith also had a great season, Boyer said. She got stronger all season, he said, and won the finals race over the weekend, taking second overall.

Boulder High also had a crew of three junior varsity boys — Michael Dessau, Grant Ellwood and Garrett Gerchar — who often fought it out for the first three spots in every race, Boyer said.

Dessau took first overall; Ellwood, second. Fairview’s Maxx Chance took third, and Gerchar, fourth.

“In two of the races, they finished one-two-three on the podium,” said Boyer of the Boulder High boys.

“Those three boys were just awesome all year and just pushed each other.”
