Craig, Decker Podium at XCT Finals

25 julio 2011

Two Giant-sponsored cross-country racers—Americans Adam Craig of the Rabobank-Giant team and Carl Decker of the Giant Factory Off-Road Team—scored podium finishes at Saturday's U.S. Pro XCT Series finals in Missoula, Montana.

Craig finished fourth and Decker was fifth at the final race of the American cross-country series. Both chose to race the Giant XtC Composite 29er on the technical course, which featured steep climbs and an optional jump that allowed the most daring riders to gain time. Craig and Decker both opted for the jump, using dropper seatposts for added control. Craig used Giant's Contact Switch seatpost, and Decker used the Reverb, made by his team sponsor RockShox.

Rounding out the efforts by Giant riders was Giant Factory Off-Road rider Kelli Emmett, who finished 12th in the pro women’s race.
