A pair of gravity veterans took home the USA Cycling 4X Pro National Championship in Angel Fire, New Mexico last weekend. Rich Houseman and Melissa Buhl took the titles in an event that was part of the Chile Challenge. With their wins, Houseman and Buhl earned spots on the US national team going to the worlds in Val di Sole, Italy in mid-June.
About 30 men tackled a revised course. Second through fourth places in the men's races went to Blake Carney, Chris Boice, and Joseph Backus while Neven Steinmetz and Jessica Vogt rounded out the top three women's places.
