Albrecht on his way to winning the Madera Stage Race.
In only two months of road racing since making the transition from the mountain bike, Jacob Albrecht capped off his rise from Category 4 to 2 with the overall win at the Madera Stage Race in Central California.
Powless took the lead and never looked back.
Meanwhile just a few hours north of Madera, Neilson Powless opened his 2014 XC account with a win at the NorCal High School Varsity race at Granite Bay. Powless will be joined by teammate Sean Bennett later this month to represent the US at the Pan American Continental Championships in Brazil.
Williams airmails it in.
And while Albrecht and Powless were topping podiums in NorCal, Casey Williams landed a Pro podium in SoCal with 2nd place at the Southridge Winter Series XC race in Fontana.
Next stop, ProXCT rounds 2 and 3 at Bonelli Park on March 15 and Fontana, CA on March 22.
