Let’s start with our TT crew and Silvermine, the NJ State Championship: Ric Wolf was 2nd 50+, Leo Baird 2nd Juniors 15-16, rising star DJ Toback WON Juniors 9-12, Chris Dawson 5th Masters 30+, Mark Curran 4th Masters 40+, Jesse O’Donnell 2nd and Brian Norling 6th in the Men’s Open race, Leisha Jackowiecz 3rd in Women’s 30+, and Emma Sherer having a great day with 4th in the Women’s Open race!! Glenn Hartrick CRUSHED the handcycle race!! Heavy hitting in all categories for State Champs — well done to all!!
Nick Morell rang in the ‘cross season early, taking 2nd at Cross of the Corn with an impressive gap on the field and finishing just behind 1st.
On that note, and moving over to mtbs, Nick Morell also locked up the Mid-Atlantic Super Series for Cat 1 40+, closing out a successful year of mtb racing with 1st for the series overall. Congrats Nick!! Can’t wait to see what you do in ‘cross this year!
Laura Slavin of EE.com’s Pro Factory team was 1st in the pro/open race at the Mid-Atlantic Super Series finale last weekend, rolling into the finish with a nice 5 minute gap on 2nd.
Out in Utah, Jess Robinson got a beer shower and a podium at Deer Valley Enduro, overcoming some seriously gnarly tech for a 3rd place finish in the expert class. They sent her down the pro course and she took the challenge head on… way to slay it, Jess!!
Even further west, Ben Shaklee laid a smack down at the Capital Forest XC 100, taking the win and destroying the course record by 20 minutes! Ben is on fire this year!
And reppin’ the Tri squad properly, Melissa Tallent was 1st female overall at Quantico Sprint Tri and Ken Rowe took 3rd in the VMTS Super Series. O.O
We are so proud of all of you, it’s been awesome to watch all the breakthroughs, PRs, and great races our athletes have had this year. ‘Cross is coming, and we couldn’t be more excited!
