Finishing second at Northstar Cody Warren (DRD X-Fusion Intense) earned the men's overall title, while Jill Kintner (Transition Racing) topped the women's standings despite not contesting the series finale.

Aaron Gwin (Trek World Racing) finished the season tied with Curtis Keene (Specialized-SRAM) for third in the rankings while Justin Leov (Trek World Racing) was fifth.

In the series finale at Northstar, Binggeli was the only professional rider to complete the 1.97-mile course in under four minutes, finishing in 3:59.6 to win the men's contest. Warren finished second, 2.5 seconds ahead of Keene in the Northstar downhill's final results.

The course for the professional men and women started at 7,638 feet of elevation and covered 1,096 feet, finishing at mid-mountain of Northstar-at-Tahoe's Mountain Bike Park - 6,542 feet of elevation.

Jill Kintner (Transition Racing) topped the final women's Pro GRT standings after winning each of the three races she entered.
