Olympic team members prove why they made the cut at cross country nationals

The Super D, a six-mile course which drops more than 2,000 feet in elevation, was also among Sundayʼs races. Adam Craig (Rabobank-Giant Offroad Team) won the menʼs pro race in 21:26.11, beating out Carl Decker (Giant Factory) by just 1.32 seconds to earn his seventh national downhill title. Third place went to Macky Franklin (Orbea-Tuff Shed), who finished fifth in the race last year.

The womenʼs Super D pro race saw last yearʼs runner-up Kelli Emmett (Giant Mountain Bike Team) take home the title with a decisive 18-second win over second-place Elizabeth English (Whitefish, Mont.). Davidson, the defending national champion, finished third on the day.
