Middaugh Top-5 at XTERRA Worlds

Monday, October 24, 2011
Kapalua, Maui Felt-sponsored multisport athlete Josiah Middaugh posted a strong top-five finish at the XTERRA World Championships in Maui, Sunday. Middaugh, a 33-year-old from Vail, Colorado, was the top American finisher in fourth, just over two minutes behind Austrian winner Michael Weiss.

Middaugh, who won the XTERRA Mountain Championship earlier this summer in Beaver Creek, Colorado, used his Felt Edict full-suspension XC bike to conquer the Kapalua course, which featured a number of power climbs and tricky descents. It was a new course for the field of 675 racers.

Middaugh was the only American to finish in the top-10. His fellow American and seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong finished 23rd.
