Montrail® Ultra Cup Winners Announced

Winners Announced Based on Cumulative Results after Fires Cancel Western States 100, the Last Race in the Series

Richmond, CA (July 15, 2008) – Montrail, a leader in high-performance trail running footwear, announces the winners of the 2007-2008 Montrail Ultra Cup series without the results of the Western States 100. The final race in the series was cancelled due to the wildfires in California. Ultimately the winners for this year's Ultra Cup were determined based upon cumulative results after finishing at least three races.

Men
1st – Erik Skaden (Folsom, CA)
2nd – Jean Pommier (Cupertino, CA)
3rd – No qualifying third place winner

Women
1st – Nikki Kimball (Livingston, MT)
2nd - Caren Spore (Davis, CA)
3rd – Leslie Antonis (Modesto, CA)

Since this year's Start List for the WS 100 was determined by lottery or earned by a top three finish in an Ultra Cup race, each person on the 2008 WS 100 final Start List will be granted an automatic entry to the 2009 event. With no lottery for 2009, the only way to gain entry into one of the oldest ultra trail events in the world is to earn it with a top three finish in a 08-09 Ultra Cup race.
