There were doubles everywhere at the NORBA stop in Brian Head, Utah last weekend. Melissa Buhl (KHS) went two-for-two in Downhill and Dual Slalom, Sue Haywood (Trek/VW) doubled up in Super D and Short Track and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (Subaru/Gary Fisher) took cross-country and short track.

But the most newsworthy double of the weekend was Horgan-Kobelski and wife Heather Irmiger's victories in cross-country. Horgan-Kobelski scored first, finishing more than three minutes ahead of chasers Geoff Kabush (Team Maxxis), Jeremiah Bishop (Trek/VW) and Todd Wells (GT/Hyundai). Irmiger came in next, with a pat on the back from her husband as she crossed the finish line, in front of Luna Chix teammates Katerina Nash and Shonny Vanlandingham.

It was the couple's second double-victory. The pair claimed double first-place finishes at the 2005 Brian Head NORBA when Irmiger picked up her first career NMBS win.
