US Pro XCT #5: Sand Creek International Classic, Colorado Springs, United States, 3 July 9-11 2010
Ryan battled it out with some of the best this weekend getting 5th in the XC and 4th in the short track.
In the short track…
Ryan Trebon (Kona), always aggressive in these types of races, finished fourth as Sam Schultz (Subaru-Gary Fisher) rode the first few laps with the leaders but could not hold their pace and eventually took the last spot on the podium.
It was no surprise to anyone that Trebon quickly went to the front of the race and tried to blow it apart. Often sprinting out of the saddle, it quickly became apparent that only JHK, Kabush and Wells could hang with him. During the middle of the race, virtually everyone in this group could be seen leading at one time or another.
With four laps to go, both Trebon and Schultz had slipped off the back and a gap emerged between the two of them. Kabush led JHK and Wells and was not going to give up the lead voluntarily.
