Whole Athlete-Specialized Team Continues Its Spring Success

The Whole Athlete-Specialized Cycling Team continued its whirlwind Spring with three wins, ten podium placings and 13 top-10 finishes over the weekend.

At the final round of the NorCal High School Series at Boggs Mountain, Lucas Newcomb (Drake High School) and Josie Nordrum (Redwood High School) completed perfect sweeps, winning all four events and the overall titles in Junior Varsity. Confirming his consistency throughout the series as well, Jonny Kaufman (San Rafael High School) took 2nd behind Newcomb in JV boys.

In the ever-competitive Varisty Divisions, Max Houtzager (Redwood) and Sofia Hamilton (Drake) each completed the series in 2nd place overall, with Taylor Smith (Marin Catholic High School) and Kate Courtney (Branson High School) each 4th and Mackinzie Stanley (Drake) taking 5th, less than a year after recovering from hip surgery.

Perhaps more impressive than any of the top results was Bobby Zidek's ride at Boggs. While he didn't win or even place on the podium, he sacrificed his chances of a high finish by stopping to help a rider who crashed hard in front of him. This selfless act is one we can all aspire to.

Meanwhile in the mountain states, Keegan Swenson continued his superb Spring with victories at the Utah State Championship Series #1 last weekend - against the pros no less - and again at the Rabbit Valley Rally in Fruita, CO this weekend. Swenson already has six wins this season, including all the Junior ProXCT races in the series thus far.
