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.
