Grotts wins Whiskey 50

Howard Grotts (Specialized), the U23 Pan American Champion, proved again that on the right course nobody can climb with him, winning a highly animated 12th edition of the Whiskey 50. Grotts topped Canadian Derek Zandstra (Scott 3Rox Racing)and Keegan Swenson (Sho-Air Cannondale). Fernando Paez (Raleigh-Clement) clearly had designs on winning the race, but ended up fourth again this year after a valiant effort, while former World Champion Christoph Sauser (Specialized) finished fifth.
