Phenomenal Fontana for Whole Athlete/Specialized

The second stop of the ProXCT series and first US Junior UCI event for 2016 in Fontana, CA saw the Whole Athlete/Specialized Team come away with six podium finishes among nine top-10 results. Christopher Blevins went two for two with the win in the Junior UCI cross country amid a highly competitive international field. Anders Johnson and Jason Rowton both hit the top-10 as well, earning critical UCI points toward their international rankings. Kelsey Urban followed suit in the Junior Women's UCI race with a strong 2nd place finish, while at only 14 years of age, Quinn Simmons landed on the Junior 15/16 podium in 3rd.

In the short track races on Sunday, Blevins followed his win the week prior with another impressive result in the Pro field with 3rd. Rowton and Simmons landed on the Junior podium in 2nd and 5th followed by Johnson in 6th, while Urban finished out a solid weekend with a top-10 in the Pro Women's race.
