Craig kicks off Nats with a win

Pruitt makes it her own

Beijing Olympics mountain bike representative Adam Craig blew away the competition in front of his hometown crowd to earn the first-ever singlespeed national title.

Third-place finisher Aaron Bradford rode out front for the first couple of laps before Craig was able to create a gap and grab his first 'cross Stars-and-Stripes jersey in style. J.T. Fountain gradually surged late in the race to earn the silver medal.

Another mountain biker, Kathy Pruitt, used her technical skills to pull away from the women’s singlespeed field following a pileup on the first lap. In only her fourth ‘cross race ever, the 2009 world championship downhill bronze medalist seemed rejuvenated in her quest for a different type of Stars-and-Stripes after suffering injury at this summer’s USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships.

“This is fun for me right now,” said Pruitt. “It’s a hoot - all muddy, slippery and crazy. It’s just such a fun sport." Just over a minute later Stella Carey (Felton, Calf./Velo Bella) crossed the line to earn the silver.
