Here is a quick update from Mountain Bike National Championships in Winter Park Colorado where Gavin Hlady, Charles Rausch, Justin Peck, and Chris Peck are racing. In the Junior 17/18 cross country on Friday we had Gavin put in an amazing ride for 12th place with Justin in 57th. Due to the size of the junior field this year, Gavin and Justin also had to race in qualifier heats the day before to assure their start positions, and Gavin was 10th with Justin in 23rd.
Also on Thursday Chris got the LGBRC jersey on the podium in 3rd place in the Men 50-54 XC, after battling mountain bike legend Travis Brown for much of the race.
There is lots of racing still to come with Charles in the Under 23 XC and short track, and Gavin competing in the 17/18 short track. We will also try to send detailed race reports when the racers recover from the effort at over 9000 feet of elevation.
