Colorado Invades the Whiskey 50

This past weekend in Prescott, Arizona, some of the best mountain bikers challenged themselves at the Whiskey Off Road. With an overall prize purse of $30,000, the pro men's and women's race on Sunday morning was sure to be a good one. Canadian Geoff Kabush took the win over the very strong men's field. Monique "Pua" Mata won in the last few miles over Georgia Gould of Fort Collins, Colorado.

The state of Colorado was well represented at the race. Colorado residents made up almost half of the total number of men and women pro racers.
They also posted some notable results. Here is a list of Colorado finishes for both the men and women:
