Aaron keeps getting better with a third place finish in what was called an 'old school mountain biker' course with tons of rock gardens, hair-raising descents and ridge-top riding.
Two more stages to go and Aaron is within 2 minutes of third place overall. he's feeling better as the race goes on!
Today's stage (stage 6) is at Rothrock Tussey Mountain and has been described as the "Queen Stage". It's 38 miles and 4100' of climbing with some of the best trails of the entire week, hitting the State College trails of Rothrock, including Tussey Mountain trail, one of the best ridge line trails in the east.
