After intense racing in Colorado this weekend, Geoff Kabush (Scott-3Rox) and Katerina Nash (Luna Pro Team) took the overall titles in the season-long series that kicked off in Texas back in early Spring.
Katerina Nash took the Colorado win and cemented her overall victory on Saturday, showing that she’s nowhere near ready for retirement. Behind her, Canadian National Champion Catharine Pendrel took second overall in the series, followed by fellow Canadian Emily Batty—between the men’s and women’s podium positions in the overall, four of the six riders were Canadian. Much loved ’crosser Georgia Gould took fourth overall, and won the short track in Colorado after taking second in the cross country race behind her teammate, Nash.
In the men’s field, while Todd Wells (Specialized) won the race on Saturday, Kabush managed to hold on to his overall standing in top spot, while Wells ended in second. Behind him, Max Plaxton rounded out the series’ podium in third.
