The dynamic duo of Haley Batten and Kelsey Urban showed they’re ready for their Spring European race campaign this month after a fourth consecutive 1-2 race performance of 2015 – this time at the Sea Otter Classic.

Currently ranked the 1st and 4th Junior Women in the world, Batten and Urban will face top international talent in Europe over the next two weekends, including the current Junior World Champion. Also joining the duo in Haiming, Austria and Heubach, Germany are teammates Christopher Blevins and Carson Beckett, who are also highly ranked at 4th and 11th among Junior Men worldwide. Thanks to their international ranking, all four riders will have the advantage of high starting call-ups at these key UCI events.



Next up for the Whole Athlete / Specialized Team:

  • 04/25/15 Junior UCI XCO Haiming, Austria
  • 05/02/15 Junior UCI XCO Heubach, German

Previous podiums for Batten and Urban include three ProXCT/US Cup Series races at Bonelli Park and Fontana. Christopher Blevins, Carson Beckett, Veda Gerasimek and Mike Mace have also found the podium in this very successful start to the season.
