By USA Cycling
Later in the afternoon, over one hundred riders including many notable cross-country racers contested the Super D event. The podium was exciting, with an interesting mix of talent. Taking the men's stars and stripes jersey in the Super D was yesterday's silver medalist in the pro cross-country - Adam Craig (Corinth, Maine). Ariel Lindsley (Boulder, Colo.) earned second place while the U23 National Team's Sam Schultz (Missoula, Mont.) took third. Mark Wier (Snovato, Calif.) and Spencer Paxon (Trout Lake, Wash.) were fourth and fifth respectively.
In the women's event - it was a familiar face to top the podium and chug the bottle of champagne. Marla Streb (Los Osos, Calif.) took top honors, while her teammate Alison Dunlap (Colorado Springs, Colo.) posted the second fastest time even though she had a flat tire about half way down the course. Dara Marks-Marino, who finished second to Dunlap in yesterday's cross-country, added to her success with today's Super D bronze medal, while Tonya Laffey (Longmont, Colo.) and Melissa Miller (Avery, Calif.) secured the final spots on the podium.
