Chloe Woodruff (Crankbrothers Race Club) extended her lead in the USA Cycling Pro Cross Country Tour (Pro XCT) women's standings, while Todd Wells (Specialized Racing) saw his advantage reduced in the men's standings after a thrilling day of racing at the Missoula XC on June 22 in Missoula, Montana.

Women

Woodruff finished second in the elite women's race behind Monique "Pua" Mata (Sho-Air Cannondale) in Missoula and extended her cushion in the Pro XCT women's standings, from 50 to 218 points, with three races remaining on the calendar. Erica Tingey (Jamis), 23rd in Missoula, remains in second place in the standings with 487 points. Ascending to third place by virtue of a fifth-place showing over the weekend was Judy Freeman (Crankbrothers Race Club), who now has a season total of 461 points. The top five in the women's standings are rounded out by Emily Batty (Trek Factory Racing) in fourth with 445 points, and Erin Huck (Tokyo Joe's) who enters the top five with 440 points after crossing the line in fourth place in Missoula.

Men

In the elite men's race, Wells recorded a sixth-place finish in Missoula but saw his Pro XCT men's standings lead over Jeremiah Bishop (Sho-Air/Cannondale) shrink to just 15 points after Bishop finished ahead of him in fourth place. It's shaping up for an exciting final three races on the calendar with Wells holding a slim 960-945 edge on Bishop. Benjamin Sonntag (American Interbanc) remains in third place with 433 points and Ryan Woodall (Top Gear Bicycles) maintains his fourth-place position with 375 points. A seventh-place finish in Missoula by Mitchell Hoke (Kenda-Felt) propels him into fifth place in the standings with 365 points.

Team

The performances by Mata and Bishop in Missoula helped Sho-Air/Cannondale take over the top spot in the Pro XCT team standings. With three races remaining on the calendar, Sho-Air Cannondale holds a 1626-1450 advantage over Specialized Racing. Trek Factory Racing remains in third place with 1165 points, followed by Kenda/Felt in fourth place with 549 points and BMC Development in fifth place with 480 points.
