Jill Kintner wins US Open Giant Slalom!

In Bicycle Racing, Mountain Biking on May 24, 2009 at 9:46 pm

Seattle native Jill Kintner smoked the field, including arch-rival Melissa Buhl, in the giant slalom competition at the US Open this weekend in Vernon, NJ. When boyfriend Bryn Atkinson finished first in the downhill qualifying rounds, there were dreams of a Domestic Double. Alas, the amazing Sam Hill rose to the occasion in the downhill, although Bryn’s 6th place finish was nothing to sneeze at. Steve Smith, riding for Seattle’s Evil Bikes, was 8th, and on the women’s side Kirkland’s Katie Holden (profiled recently on Freeride Foundation) finished a respectable 12th.
