Russell handles Snowshoe

The Snowshoe GNCC has a unique start as riders line up on the main village city center drive, and take-off in rows of five riders spaced 10 seconds apart. Russell had a great jump, and was able to move into the lead at the first large downhill.

From that moment on he rode a mistake-free race, to stretch his lead every lap on his way to the win. At the end of the three-hour long race he took the victory by three minutes.

GNCC competitors Kailub Russell and Grant Baylor also collected wins in their respective classes at the legendary Snowshoe round in West Virginia. XC1 rider Russell needed half of the race to recover from an early crash, but he eventually caught race leader and teammate Charlie Mullins to take his third-straight win. Mullins held on for second and still leads the overall points standings.

XC2 class rider Baylor started up front, but had a battle on his hands as rival Jason Thomas took over the lead after the second lap. For several laps, the two riders checked in less than a second apart, but Baylor’s pass on the last lap allowed him to come across the finish line with his third win of the season. He now has a 19-point lead in the XC2 class standings.
