9/20 Results - Green Mountain Sports Cross #1
The CLIF BAR Development Team and TEAM CLIF BAR posted strong early season results last weekend, at the first race in the Green Mountain Sports series.
In the Cat. 4 race, new CLIF Devo team member Zane Godby rode to a great 3rd place result, and teammate Zack Gould took a break from Middle School football to race as well.
In the Cat. 3 race, 15-yr old Yannick Eckmann won his second race in a row, and rookie Dave Kessler impressed with 13th place.
In the Open race, CLIF Devo team alum and current TEAM CLIF BAR rider Brady Kappius tuned up for Cross Vegas with an awesome 5th place. Devo team U23 rookies Mitch Hoke and Colin Cares traded in the wide knobbies they're used to and punched in for their first 'cross race - and did just fine with a solid 12th and 13th place respectively.
