Snowy success

Two weekends in Warwick, Rhode Island proved to be successful for the Killington Mountain School Cycling team. NBX, the Vittoria Northeastern cross series finale, races took place the first weekend of December. Despite the cold temperatures, the team enjoyed the always exciting course held at Goddard Memorial State Park. The first race of the day on Saturday for the team was the Cat 3 women in which Elli Clark and Aliza Tobias competed. Elli had a fantastic race riding in the lead group, finishing in a strong third. Sunday was an even better day for Elli as she bridged the gap to many riders in front of her and found herself in first place. What a great weekend for Elli! Also in the race, Aliza had a fun time pushing her technical skills as she was battling a sickness that weekend.

Tyler Clark's 15-18 Juniors race combined with the master men proved to be an exciting race, with the top three juniors ruling the field. On Saturday, Tyler rode in that front group through the many obstacles, beach running, barriers, and root filled turns to finish in third place. Sunday was another exciting race with a similar group of four riders controlling the field throughout the race. Tyler finished the day in a strong fourth place on Sunday.
