Trans-Sylvania Epic Day 7 Report and Results

Posted by: Shannon Boffeli |June 5, 2010 6:59 PM
Jeremiah Bishop and Selene Yaeger win the inaugural Trans-Sylvania Epic

On the final stage of the first mountain bike stage in Pennsylvania the Trans-Sylvania Epic has come to a close after 7 tough days of riding.

The open women used today's stage as a fun tour of the Pennsylvania countryside. With large gaps between the first 3 women they collectively decided to have fun on the final day and finished the stage in order of their GC placing with Selene Yaeger taking first followed by Karen Potter and Rebecca Rusch finishing third.

The men on the other hand were forced to battle it out despite Jeremiah Bishop (Cannondale) holding on to an almost insurmountable lead in the GC.

Alex Grant (Cannondale), Brandon Draugelis, and Christian Tanguy (Team CF) were separated by just 5 sceonds. 

In the end Bishop would take another win and the overall title of TSE champion. Drew Edsall (Yeti) turned in another strong performance taking second on the final day followed by Alex Grant who broke his tie for second place locking the spot up after suffering through the first two stages of the race and falling well down in the GC.

Edsall leapfrogged over Tanguy and Evan Plews to finish in 4th on the GC while Draugelis (PAValleys.com) held on for third.
