Soft conditions
Strong Results for the Scott Pro Mountain bike team in a stacked 35+ rider open/elite field.  Cam and Aaron (Aaron rode 60 miles to the race venue that morning in preparation for the Transylvania Epic later this month) rode away from the field, finishing 1/2 and about 3 minutes up on third place. Aaron and Cam dueled it out with Cam winning by 20-30 seconds. This was Cam's first overall win in the open/elite class!

Jay also rode away from the master's field, winning by more than 3 minutes.

Dylan Johnson raced the open/elite category too but after a strong start he suffered a mechanical early in the first lap (rock strike onto a derailleur) that ended his race... Bummer as he likely would have joined the others in the top 10.

Full Results are available here.

Next weekend is the continuation of the MASS series at On the Rocks @ French Creek in Elverson, PA.
