It was another banner day of mountain bike racing in Nebraska May 5 at the Psycowpath Platte River Battle Royale. The trail and race promotion were excellent and the team performed well with several podium finishes and good efforts all around.

Brad Auen made good in his first official race with EVCCX-Monster, winning the Cat 1 19-29 class. Whitney Porn also won her class out-sprinting Evie Johnson in the last section of trail before the finish. Jerry Hoff took second in the Cat 2 50+ and Clayton Spray was third in the Junior men 13-15 class. New club member Sean Moore was fifth in the Cat 2 19-29 class. Sean hasn’t committed to being a part of the team just yet but we’re hoping he will soon.
