How was your weekend? For ITP riders at the Steele Creek GNCC in Morganton, North Carolina, it was excellent. A number of talented Team ITP riders stepped up on the podium at the end of the third round of the 2012 Grand National Cross Country Series.

Adam McGill (Hon) put on an awesome come-from-behind charge on a course notorious for its narrow, hard-to-pass nature to finish second in the XC1 Pro class and second overall. The West Virginia native has now moved into third in the point standings, despite his mechanical issues at round two.

Patrick McGuire (Yam) was on the course at the same time as McGill, on his way to fourth place in XC2 Pro Am. This was enough to easily keep him in the number one position in class points for the season.

The morning races were even more rewarding for ITP riders.

Ageless Dave Simmons (Yam) was once again the overall winner, ahead of well over 200 competitors. He captured the Super Senior 45+ win in the process, his third in three events so far in 2012.

Sixth overall in the morning wave and first in the Women’s class was Angel Atwell (Yam). The top three in this race were separated by only three seconds after nearly two hours of racing, proving how competitive these gals are. This was Atwell’s second win of the year and third consecutive podium finish, which shot her into the points lead for the group.

Glenn McConnell (Yam) climbed to the top of the Masters 50+ podium for the second consecutive time while finishing 15th overall. This moved him into fourth in class points, but since an amateur rider’s best 11 of 13 events count in the standings—and he did not participate in round one—he’s certainly in championship contention.

The series now moves to Union, South Carolina, April 14-15, for the Big Buck GNCC.
