Urban and Johnson Show Rising Form at Eastern Grind US Cup-ProXCT

With the US National Championships just a few days away, first-year U23s Kelsey Urban and Anders Johnson tuned their peak fitness at the Eastern Grind US Cup-ProXCT in Catamount, VT this past weekend. Urban came away with 5th place podium finishes in both the XC and STXC, while Johnson had his best Elite ProXCT finishes to date with 13th in the XC and 7th in the STXC.

After battling with the country's top pros in the ProXCTs for much of the season, Urban and Johnson will have the rare US opportunity to race an under-23-only field as they compete for the U23 National Title in West Virginia this weekend.
