One week after winning the US short track national championships, Georgia Gould (Luna) won the Catamount Classic short track in Vermont.

"That's what I call a streak!" Gould told Cyclingnews after her win. "It was a great race. The course was pretty technical - there was a hill and some singletrack."

Gould won in a sprint finish ahead of her teammate Katerina Nash and Lea Davison (Specialized), who won yesterday's cross country.
