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.

Binggeli (KHS Bicycle) won the men's race to catapult himself from ninth place on June 27 to second place in the final men's Pro GRT standings.

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.
