Earning her second international victory, Kate Courtney won the Pan American Junior Women's title today in Tucuman, Argentina with a dominant ride that saw her take the early lead and never look back.

Teammate Lucas Newcomb also rode well with a solid 5th place finish in the Junior Men, even after an early race crash required him to overtake the majority of the field by the finish. Both Courtney and Newcomb will be heading to Europe next month to race the first two rounds of the World Cup in Abstadt, Germany and Nove Mesto, Czech Republic. 

In the meantime, the next stop for the Whole Athlete/Specialized Team is the Sea Otter Classic on April 18-21. Stay tuned for more exciting news!
