Big weekend coming up for the Kona Factory Team. Three days of racing that will determine who is the best mountain bike racer in their respective countries. Representing the American corner: Ryan Trebon, Barry Wicks and Erik Tonkin. Will Ryan prove his latest results to be a force to recon with? Will Barry become the champ he is known to be? Will Erik’s time in his shop prove worthy of National Champion status? All this will be going down at the USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships which return to the Sol Vista Bike Park at Granby Ranch, Colorado.

In Canada, Canmore, Alberta to be exact, Kris Sneddon will battle for the Canadian title in XC and our new kid on the block, Cory Wallace will attempt a crack at Marathon domination. It’s a big weekend with hopefully big results. Stay tuned to the Cog for all the action.
