    Men's Race Missoula Pro XCT 2012


    Video size

    Sam Schultz lived up to the expectations and won his second consecutive Missoula XC here in his hometown. One week after the ride of his life at the USA National Championships in Sun Valley, ID, Schultz was back on the start line for a rematch with Olympic partner Todd Wells. Wearing his new Stars and Stripes Subaru/ Trek kit, Sam rode away from Wells and the rest on lap one and never looked back. Behind, Wells had trouble with another young shredder, this time from his own Specialized teammate, and first year pro, Howard Grotts. Grotts rode out of his skin both up and down the mountain, dropping the veterans Wells and JHK like a sack of Idaho potatoes. Australia's Jack Haig, also a U23, had an equally impressive showing, nailing a huge podium ride here in the US.
