For the 2nd year running, Derek Hermon took 3rd place at the US Cup Pro Triple Crown series. The triple crown is a series of 3 events taking place at Bonelli Park, Fontanna and Santa Ynez. The Triple Crown includes three disciplines at each events-XC/SD/TT/STXC. A riders best two scores counts for his/her overall all score on the weekends event, as well as the series. This year Cat 1 riders were also allowed to compete in the series. Bear Valley Bikes Trey Jarno and Cynthia Miranda decided to give it a go and both also finished on the podium.
Running consecutively with the Triple Crown is the US Cup West series and the Endurance Series. Bear Valley Bikes has been in good attendance for the series so far with consistent podium finishes from several riders including Mark Blakeslee, Steve Engelgau, Stuart Gonzales, Rebecca Mitchell and great efforts from others including John Nobil, Scott Hyde, Alec and Zach Burton. We are excited for the rest of the Series, especially the ones held in our home town of Big Bear Lake on June 2nd, the XC State Campionships on June 16th and the State Endurance Championships which will be held on October 5th.
