Whole Athlete-Specialized Riders Continue to Impress at Howell Mountain Challenge

Fresh off a strong top-10 finish at U23 Nationals, Will Curtis showed his late-season form by winning the Howell Mountain Challenge Pro race, setting one of the fastest-ever recorded times on the technical, twisty course.

Tony Smith and Taylor Smith followed just behind Curtis to take 1st and 2nd in the Junior race, beating the rest of the pro field. Max Houtzager made it an all-Whole Athlete-Specialized Junior sweep of the podium, while newly crowned 15/16 National Champion Lucas Newcomb took 4th.

Not to be outdone by the boys, two-time current 15/16 National Champion Kate Courtney won the Junior Women's race as well!
