The 2006 US National Mountain Bike Series opened in Southern California for the season opener on May 6 & 7 and three-time world champion Alison Sydor (Rocky Mountain/Business Objects) continues to show world-class performance. In Saturday's dusty cross-country race, Sydor rode consistently to take second place behind 2005 series winner Shonny Vanlandingham of the US. The following day, Sydor would once again display her incredible prowess in short track cross country racing.
The short-track win means that Sydor has now won every US NORBA short track race that she has entered as a Rocky Mountain Business Objects racer (since 2003).
On May 14 Sydor will accompany Marie Hélène Prémont, Pia Sundstedt, Marty Lazarski and Karl Platt at the World Cup Cross Country in Madrid.
