Like every June, it was busy across all cycling disciplines and true to their skill levels, Felt athletes made an impact in every event they entered.
Beginning in MTB, it was XTERRA champion Josiah Middaugh (USA, above) who prevailed at the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, CO. Josiah won the muliti-sport event know as the “Ultimate Mountain Challenge” which was comprised of kayaking, mountain biking and mountain running. It was a big win as Josiah now gets ready for the heart of the XTERRA season. Not far away, in Reno, NV, Felt’s enduro team gathered for the Battle Born Enduro which was first event of this year’s California Enduro Series and Casey Coffman (USA), aboard his Compulsion took a quality 3rd.

And in St. Wendel, GER, it was Team Feenstra’s Blaza Klemencic (SLO, below) who raced to a very prestigious silver medal in the 2015 European MTB XC Championships. Blaza continues to bloom as an athlete and impress the MTB world with her racing prowess and results.
In triathlon we were very excited to see new Felt athlete Tim Reed (AUS) race to second place in a highly competitive Ironman 70.3 Cairns. Tim finished with a 3.51.22, just 28sec down on the winning time. Meanwhile, Josh Amberger (AUS) overcame mechanical issues to still finish in a very solid 4th at Ironman 70.3 Boise. Josh continues to climb the ladder and be a one-to-watch in his young career.
In road action, Team TWENTY16 added two more wins to their quiver as Allie Drago (USA) won the overall at Le Tour de Mont Pleasant in Michigan and Alison Tetrick (USA) took top honors in the 17th annual Pescadero Road Race in California. At the same time, Lex Albrecht (CAN), who continues to make her presence known in every race she enters, grabbed a very strong 4th in the prestigious UCI GP Cycliste Gatineau in Quebec, Canada. This was a major international event and Lex is now primed for a strong ride at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later next month.
Finally, it was budding sprint star Missy Erickson who got her 2014-15 US track season officially kicked off with a big Keirin win at the famed Trexlertown Velodrome in the World Series of Bicycle Racing.
