The spring session of XC Races, hosted by Arrow Helicopters, concluded last week with a challenging circuit on the trails at RMR.

The evening’s overall winner was Seth Van Varseveld, seen above exiting the North Loop from Fault Line, he completed the circuit in 49:12. Kellen Viznaugh led the race up until a flat tire took him out of contention for the podium. Brendan MacIntosh traded places with Van Varseveld on the final descent to cross the line one second behind the leader. In third place was Brad (Cookie) Christie, comfortably ahead of the rest of the riders. Click here for detailed results.

In the women’s field the two Emilys put on a strong show with Emily Unterberger taking top spot with a time of 1:02:13 and Emily Suchy crossing the line in second. Not far behind Suchy was Meghan Tabor who bested her regular rival Marcy Bennett by 11 seconds.

Thanks to all who participated and to all the volunteers who helped make these events possible. We’ll see you in the fall for the next round of XC Racing presented by Arrow Helicopters!
