COS Racing Team Podiums at 2019 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Nationals

WINTER PARK, CO – On July 26, 2019, three COS Racing riders competed for national honors at the 2019 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Nationals in the Winter Park, Colorado. Two COS Racing riders took 5th place in their respective categories, while COS Racing member, sponsor, mentor, and coach, Daniel Matheny placed 6th overall.  This year’s event was hosted by Winter Park Ski Resort

Competing in the XC Women 25-29 Cat 1/2 event, Lacey Rivette raced to 5th.  Relatively new to endurance sports, Lacey wrote “I can’t describe how it feels to know that after only a year of consistent training and hard work, a girl who never did any type of racing or endurance sports was able to stand on the podium next to some insanely talented and fast ladies!”  This performance marked a notable improvement over her 7th place finish at this year’s 2019 Marathon Nationals at Palo Duro Canyon, Texas.

In the XC Mens 35-39 Cat 1/2 race, Peter Tonn took the 5th step of the podium, matching his recent performance at Marathon Nationals.  Peter finished just 15 seconds off the lead group of four riders and a minute or so in front of former National Champion and COS Racing rider Daniel Matheny.

This year’s event took place on a climby, 5-mile singletrack loop that started at 9,000 feet above sea-level and topped out at over 9,600 feet.
