Monday, December 07, 2009
Portland - Danny Summerhill of the Holowesko Partners-Felt team, the Under-23 arm of the Garmin-Slipstream organization, had an impressive weekend of cyclocross racing in Portland, winning the U-23 category in both events of the December 5-6 Portland Stanley Cup.
Racing at the final weekend of the U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross, an eight-race series that started in September, Summerhill piloted his Felt F15X to two top-10 finishes against the nation’s top pros. He was seventh in Saturday’s race and ninth in Sunday’s race (despite crashing and rolling a tire).
Summerhill, the Silver Medalist in the Junior category at the 2007 Cyclocross World Championships, is gunning for the U-23 National Championship in Bend, Oregon, next weekend.
