MTF Tin Cup

Top Rough Road Riding Event Participants

The inspiration for the Tin Cup award comes from a Colorado mining town named (surprise) Tin Cup.
Here is a recent picture of Tin Cup:

Tincup lies three miles due west of the continental divide in a high mountain valley called Taylor Park.
Legend has it that prospector Jim Taylor discovered a rich deposit.

In October 1859, prospector Jim Taylor panned some gold from Willow Creek, and carried it back to camp in a tin cup; he named the valley “Tin Cup Gulch.”. For years the area was the site of seasonal placer mining, but no year-round communities were established, partly because of the danger of Indian attack. In 1878, lode deposits were discovered in the area, and the town of Virginia City was laid out in March 1879. By the 1880 census, the town had a population of 1,495. Virginia City was incorporated in August 1880, but confusion with the Virginia City in Nevada and Montana caused the residents to change the name. The town was reincorporated in July 1882 as Tin Cup.

Tin Cup has become a mecca for outdoor recreation. The 2006 WMR Rough Road Riders passed through Tin Cup several times as they rode over various mountain passes in the area. Frenchy's in Tin Cup is a good resturant and the general store sells actual tin cups.
