US domestic downhill national series wraps up near Lake Placid

The USA Cycling Professional Mountain Bike Gravity Tour (Pro GRT) wrapped up last weekend with Bryn Atkinson and Jill Kintner (both Transition Racing) claiming the overall wins in the five-race series. The best of the best in gravity racing converged on the Whiteface Mountain Bike Park in Lake Placid, New York, for the final which was won by Justin Leov and Tracy Moseley (both Trek World Racing).

Though not present in Lake Placid, Atkinson had accumulated 205 points over the US Pro GRT season and kept the number one spot after the final. Neethling, who made the podium in the final round, was second in the series with 195 points while Leov moved into third-place with 190 points after winning the Whiteface event.

In the women's race, Moseley's win wasn't enough to help her regain her US Pro GRT lead however, and Kintner stayed in the number spot with 335 points compared to the British rider's 240. Coming in third in the final women's Pro GRT standings was Melissa Buhl (KHS Bicycles) with 180 points.
