San Dimas, CA – Reigning U23 National Champion, Danny Summerhill, had a successful weekend at Krosstoberfest, taking 5th on Day 1 of and winning Day 2 aboard his Felt F15X. The win on Day 2 marked his UCI C2 win after being a dominant force in UCI U23 races in previous years.
The racing on Day 1 was brutal from the start, with a fast pace set by the world class field. After morning rains saturated the course, the 1/2 race was a muddy affair. Summerhill was in contention for the podium the entire race until an incident in the final turn left him with a 5th place finish.
Day 2 racing was on a drier, more open course and suited Summerhill's strengths. Staying at the front of the race the entire day, Danny was able to break away with another rider after a serious of vicious attacks. In the final laps, Summerhill was able to get a gap over his break away companioin and rode to victory.
