Craftsbury Juniors Ellis and Sweet at Mountain Bike Nationals

Last Updated: 25.Jul.2017

Two Craftsbury juniors made the trip to Snowshoe, West Virginia over the weekend to compete in the 2017 USA Mountain Bike Nationals. After standout results at the Julbo Eastern Grind a week ago, Finn Sweet and Avery Ellis decided to make the trip down south to see how they would stack up nationally.

Finn competed in the Junior Men 15-16 Cat 1/2 division. He placed 30th out of 73 in the cross country race, which had one of the largest field sizes on the day.

Avery raced the next day in the U23 Women's division, and had an awesome 8th place finish in the cross country race. Avery is a long time Craftsbury junior, and will join the Middlebury panthers next year as a freshman on the nordic team.

Congrats to both Avery and Finn!
