Fall Century Ride
Riding against fierce headwinds on one section of the High Sierra Fall Century route and battling equipment problems along the way, the kids of Mammoth Mountain Ski Team all completed the High Sierra Fall Century bike ride last Saturday.
"We had a great, great time," said one of the teams' coaches, Kevin Francis. "One of them had a flat tire but got help from a couple of women riders, and one of them bonked, but we got some food into him and he finished the ride."
Having little sense of the difference between, say, the â€śPistolâ€ť offense of the Nevada Wolf Pack and the Pro Set of Fresno State, Mammoth photographer Brandon Russell has found himself in a most improbable spot.
That would be the College Football Hall of Fame.
â€śCrazy, huh?â€ť said the 28-year-old Russell, a University of Nevada-Reno graduate and a noted action sports photographer.
Russell said he really doesnâ€™t know the intricacies of the sport he photographs so well, but last season, Nevada hit gold, er, silver, and Russell was there to capture it.

in season opener
The Mammoth Huskies havenâ€™t had this kind of momentum since Head Coach Tom Gault can remember.
In winning a stirring, 6-3 come-from-behind victory over the L.A. Baptist Knights last Saturday at Gault-McClure Stadium, the Huskies pulled off one of the biggest victories that the 64-year old coach could remember.
