First round completed at Port Angeles

The USA Cycling Professional Mountain Bike Gravity Tour (Pro GRT) kicked off on Sunday with Northwest Cup #2 on the trails at Dry Hill in Port Angeles, Washington. Both the elite men's and women's fields were stacked with world-class talent as the weekend's on-and-off rain made for a slick, fast course.

In the men's event, Bryn Atkinson (Transition Racing) descended to the win with a time of 2:34.39 compared to the 2:35.20 posted by second place finisher Justin Leov (Trek World Racing).

In the women's race, Tracy Moseley (Trek World Racing) clocked a 2:50.82 on the slippery course to beat runner-up Rachel Atherton (Commencal) by three seconds.

With the first of five events on the Pro GRT now complete, Atkinson and Moseley have the early leads in the standings. The Pro GRT will continue at Plattekill Bike Park in Roxbury, NY, May 22-23. Click here for more information.
