Race 2 - August 19: Four-cross

Australians take men's and women's four-cross

Australian gravity riders Mick Hannah and Katrina Miller rode to wins in the four-cross race at Snowshoe, Friday as Brian Schmith (Lancaster, Pa.) came within a whisker of his first pro NORBA national win. Schmith took an early lead in the final heat ahead of the top-seeded Hannah, Ross Milan (Arvada, Colo.) and Jared Graves (Aus) and held an advantage for most of the run before being overtaken on the line by Hannah.

Milan and Graves crashed early in the run taking themselves out of contention for the win and finished third and fourth respectively.

In the consolation round, Christopher Herndon (Etowah, N.C.) won the 5-8 final to round out the top five.

In the women's four-cross final, Miller bested reigning U.S. National Champion Tara Llanes (Los Alamitos, Calif.), current series leader Melissa Buhl (Chandler, Ariz.) and Karen Eagan (Lowell, Mass.) to give Australia a sweep of the four-cross events.

Kathy Pruitt (Lake Almanor, Calif.) took fifth place with a win in the consolation round.

Current series leaders entering the event, Graves and Buhl retained their overall leads in the men's and women's four-cross standings thanks to their solid performances on Saturday.
