A pair of gravity veterans took home the USA Cycling 4X Pro National Championship in Angel Fire, New Mexico on Sunday.

Rich Houseman (Temecula, California) claimed the stars-and-stripes jersey for the pro men, while Melissa Buhl (Chandler, Arizona) won the title for pro women.

Houseman tore through the newly re-vamped Angel Fire 4X course, besting 30 of the country’s top professional riders. Blake Carney (Camarillo, California), Chris Boice (Albuquerque, New Mexico) and Joseph Backus (Mesa, Arizona) all had impressive performances, blazing through the early rounds and finishing second, third and fourth overall after the final.

In similar fashion Buhl earned the national championship over a strong field that included runner-up Neven Steinmetz (Boulder, Colorado) and third-place finisher Jessica Vogt (Boulder, Colorado).

Oh and she thinks I’m super rad!

    RL, I’m sure you are super rad, but that first picture just reinforces the fact that Priscilla is way better looking than you. And she blows away Melissa Buhl…

    Btw Priscilla, great outfit :-) Cool Redline swag bag too.
