Showdown at 5-Mile Pass - Lehi, Utah

5-Mile Pass - Lehi, Utah

Amanda Carey and Bryson Perry Win the Pro Categories

Extremely dry conditions formed the backdrop for the 18th annual Showdown at 5-Mile Pass. A warm, dry winter in Utah seemed to be magnified at 5-Mile as a deep layer of dust covered the 11-mile course.

The pro men completed 4 laps of the course with the women taking on 3.

Dave Harward (Plan 7) and Bryson Perry (Lifetime Fitness) were the early animators of the long XC event after breaking up the early group, which included Reed Wycoff (Contender), Shannon Boffeli (Epic Brewing/MTBRaceNews.com), and Drew Free (Revolution).

Perry and Harward traded the lead over almost 3 hours with Perry finally coming out on top after making a last lap move to drop Harward. Casey Zaugg (CocoNutz Fuel) moved into third after an early mechanical dropped him off the pace.

The women's race saw endurance racing big-hitter Amanda Carey (Kenda/Felt) powering off the front early. After a flat tire eliminated Erica Tingey (Kuhl/Rocky Mountain) from the race Carey was on her own for the entire event.

Jen Hanks (Epic Brewing/MTBRaceNews.com) rode in second and although she could see the leader all day she could not close the gap on first place. Evelyn Dong turned in a consistent performance taking third.
