Vermaerke and Johnson Earn XC and Xterra Victories

The season ain't over yet! With the XC World Championships just over a week away, newly crowned National Champ Kevin Vermaerke honed his race form with a win this past week at the Over the Hump XC in Orange County, CA. Vermaerke will represent the US in Cairns, Australia in both the World Championship Team Relay and Cross Country events.

Meanwhile, Anders Johnson switched gears from XC to Xterra this month as he prepares for the National Championships in Snowbasin, UT in just a few weeks time. His first-ever Xterra at the Wild Ride Off-road Triathlon in McCall, Idaho this past weekend resulted in a victory that stunned his veteran competitors. Johnson's Xterra Nationals prep appears to be right on track!
