Standings tighten with one round remaining

The Subaru-Trek squad dominated the penultimate stop on the 2012 USA Cycling Pro Cross Country Tour (Pro XCT) last weekend, winning both the elite men's and women's events at the Missoula XC. With their wins, Sam Schultz (Subaru-Trek) and Heather Irmiger (Subaru-Trek) tightened up the top of the Pro XCT overall standings with only Wisconsin's Subaru Cup remaining.

Colin Cares (Kenda/Felt) holds a slight lead over Schultz and Todd Wells (Specialized) in the men's standings headed into the series' final event, the Subaru Cup, on August 18. On the women's side, Pua Mata (ShoAir), who also leads the USA Cycling Pro Ultra-Endurance Calendar (Pro UET), has 40 points on Irmiger and 50 on Erin Huck (Tokyo Joe's) with only one event remaining.

With another solid team performance in Missoula, Subaru-Trek has a firm grip on the team overall, 51 points ahead of Kenda/Felt Pro MTB Team and 61 on third-placed Specialized racing.

The 2012 Pro XCT will wrap up with the Subaru Cup in Mt. Morris, Wisconsin on August 18.
