Congrats to Mitch Ropelato for being the 2009 Junior X Downhill and 2009 Pro Men’s 4x National Champion!
Mitch came through his downhill run with heat and flowed through the jumps and tree sections. Mitch beat a couple of juniors who are currently on the world cup circuit. Way to show them how its done!
The 4x final was extremely tense for the crowd as JD Swanguen attempted to get ahead of the pack and nearly took out Mitch. After a hare scramble back to first place, Mitch was bike lengths ahead of second place. Congrats again to Mitch for showing the Pros how it goes.
Congrats go out to Tyler and Evan Gilsdorf. Tyler takes a podium spot in 3rd place in Cat 1:19-24 and brother Evan pulls in 14th place junior X DH.
A special thanks goes out to Kerry Ropelato from the Canfield Brothers!
