CNSC and GRP at the VT3

Last Updated: 27.Aug.2019

The one-day VT3 extravaganza took place last Sunday at the Outdoor Center. Nearly a dozen current CNSC and GRP athletes or alums put the pedal to the metal for either 15 or 30 miles of racing fun. The course covered much of the COC trail system, including fast flowy trails and tricky technical sections, with some dirt road grinding bits to get from one trail to another. In the long course (30 mile) U20 men’s division, Finn Sweet was 4th followed by Makail Tipton in 5th. In the men’s 21+ division, Ben Lustgarten was 2nd (and 2nd overall) followed by GRP alum Pat O’Brien in 4th. In the U20 men’s short course (15 miles), Leo Circosta was 2nd followed by Orion Cenkl in 5th. In the men’s 21+ short course, CNSC alum and summer bike shop maestro Xav Koontz-Miller was 3rd. In the U20 women’s long course, CNSC alum Callie Young was 1st and her buddy and CNSC alum Phoebe Sweet was 2nd in the U20 women’s short course. In the 21+ women’s long course, GRP alum Ida Sargent was 2nd (behind a mountain bike Olympian!) and GRP’er Kaitlynn Miller was 1st in the 21+ short course. Congrats to all! See full results here
