The dynamic duo of Haley Batten and Kelsey Urban showed they're ready for their Spring European race campaign this month after a fourth consecutive 1-2 race performance of 2015 - this time at the Sea Otter Classic.
A focused Batten leads through the singletrack in cool, foggy conditions.
Currently ranked the 1st and 4th Junior Women in the world, Batten and Urban will face top international talent in Europe over the next two weekends, including the current Junior World Champion. Also joining the duo in Haiming, Austria and Heubach, Germany are teammates Christopher Blevins and Carson Beckett, who are also highly ranked at 4th and 11th among Junior Men worldwide. Thanks to their international ranking, all four riders will have the advantage of high starting call-ups at these key UCI events.
Urban heads to Europe with good form.
