Fort Lewis and Brevard claim overall wins at Collegiate Nationals

Division 1 and 2 invididual ominums also awarded

Fort Lewis College and Brevard College clinched the Divisions I and II team omniums as the 2009 USA Cycling Collegiate Mountain Bike National Championships came to a close on Sunday. Both teams had commanding leads going into the final day of racing - leads which were strengthened even more with some very solid efforts in the downhill finales.

Fort Lewis earned a total of 671 points over the weekend to best the 589 earned by its closest rival, the University of Colorado. Rotem Ishay played a significant role in the domination of Fort Lewis thanks to his win in the men's cross country and short track races. Also, on the gravity side, the school's Emma Millar won the women's four cross while Sage Wilderman posted the fastest result in Sunday's downhill race.

In Division II, Brevard scored 663 points to beat out Union College of Kentucky, which accumulated a total of 533 points. A big factor in Brevard's victory was rider Johanne Tuttle, who won the Division II Women's four cross and placed second in the downhill contest on Sunday. Julia Tellman and Tristan Cowie also put in several podium performances.

In addition to the team omniums, individual omniums were awarded to men and women in each division after the downhill races concluded. In Division I, the top honors went to Mitchell Peterson (University of Utah) and Sage Wilderman (Fort Lewis College). Zach Winn (Union College of Kentucky) and Johanne Tuttle (Brevard College) grabbed the overall prizes in Division II.
