Blevins Unbeatable as Whole Athlete / Specialized Lands Five Podium Finishes

Christopher Blevins led the charge at the Bonelli ProXCT #1 this weekend with a solo win in the Junior 17/18 Cross Country, followed by an impressive sprint victory in the Pro Short Track on Sunday.

Jason Rowton joined Blevins on Saturday's XC podium in 4th, a result that was nothing short of amazing after being airlifted to the hospital from a severe crash only three weeks prior. Teammate Anders Johnson also rode well, narrowly missing the podium in 6th.
