Pro GRT Tahoe Recap
Escondido, California (June 29, 2010) - The 3rd round of the Pro GRT took place this past weekend at the Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort in the picturesque town of Truckee, California. In what has been described as “one of the most exciting races in the United States in recent years,” the Pro GRT Tahoe event exceeded expectations! Many thanks to everyone involved (promoters, trail crew, athletes, industry, media & spectators alike) making this one of the best events on the Pro GRT schedule! Congratulations to Greg Minnaar (Santa Cruz Syndicate), and Jill Kintner (Transition Racing) on their victories. Congratulations also go out to Bryn Atkinson (Transition Racing) on retaining his series points lead and Jill Kintner for capturing the series points lead.
This event was also used as a US Worlds team selection for Junior Cat 1 racers, as well Pro GRT points leaders.
Next, the Pro GRT series moves to Trestle Bike Park within the Rocky Mountains of Winterpark, Colorado on July 29 – August 1, 2010, in conjunction with Crankworx Colorado.
See you there!
