Summerhill on first UCI podium, Kappius gets first UCI points of season

Mountaineer Cross (UCI Cat. 2), Gunnison, CO - Saturday November 9

CLIF BAR Development 'Cross Team captains Brady Kappius and Danny Summerhill road tripped this weekend to a small pair of UCI-category 2 races in Western Colorado.

In Saturday's race on the Western State College campus, Summerhill used a great start to separate himself early with two of the strongest riders, Todd Wells and Joachim Parbo (Danish National Champ). While he couldn't match their pace, Summerhill rode a steady race to hold 3rd, the first time he's been on the podium at a UCI-ranked event.

Kappius also enjoyed a great start and rode to a strong 9th-place finish, gaining his first UCI points of the season.
