Two current Junior National Champions are returning to defend their titles in Kate Courtney and Keegan Swenson. Both riders are fresh off strong race performances in the last two weeks, with Courtney winning both the Peavine Challenge and Downieville XC, and Swenson taking top-5 finishes in both North American World Cups in Mont Sainte Anne and Windham, NY.
The team comes to Nationals well prepared after a three-week high altitude training camp. Eight Cat 1 Junior Men (six 17/18 and two 15/16 riders), five Cat 1 Junior Women (three 17/18 and two 15/16 riders) and four U23s will line up for a shot at the title starting tomorrow.
