ECCC: UVM takes top honors as season concludes

UNH/RIT hosted the ECCC championships this past weekend. The University of Vermont won the team overall ahead of the University of New Hampshire and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. UVM goes into Nationals a favorite for the overall win in the club division.

Nick LANDO (UVM) added 2 more wins this season in the STXC and XC races and goes into Nationals as a strong contender in the Endurance races. Kathryn LAWRENCE (MIT) and Hazel BREWSTER (UVM) split the endurance races with wins in the STXC and XC, respectively. BREWSTER’s margin of victory of almost 9 minutes was impressive and means she is hitting top form for Nationals in two weeks. UVM also took the team relay about 1 minute ahead of UNH, with RPI another minute back in 3rd.

The weekend included Enduro and Downhill events for the gravity riders. Although Enduro doesn’t translate well to predictions regarding the Nationals events of DS and DH, Hazel BREWSTER (UVM) and Brad TASIK (UVM) took the wins in that multi-stage event combining aspects of both Endurance and Gravity.

Lisa Chamberland (UVM) and Jimmy Leslie (UVM) won their respective Downhill events by substantial margins. Both riders are strong contenders for the title at Nationals and will be key to their team’s battle for the overall team title.
