Geoff Kabush (Team Maxxis-Rocky Mountain) earned a convincing win in the men's cross country race this past weekend at Mount Snow's Mountain Bike Festival, the fifth stop on the American ProXCT series presented by Sho-air. Another Canadian, Catherine Pendrel (Luna) took the women's victory.

The results of round five mixed up the men's series standings. With all but the finals completed, Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (Subaru-Gary Fisher) took over the series lead from Max Plaxton (Sho-air-Specialized), and Sid Taberlay (Sho-air-Specialized) moved into second position.

In the women's standings, Catherine Pendrel (Luna) continues to lead the women with Georgia Gould (Luna) hot on her heels.

The Mount Snow race weekend also featured a short track contest. Specialized's Todd Wells finished second and held onto his short track series lead. And although Katerina Nash (Luna) won the women's race, Heather Irmiger (Subaru-Gary Fisher) holds the women's series lead.

The US ProXCT will conclude this weekend at the Yankee Clipper at Windham Mountain in New York on August 15.
