JAM/NCC/Vittoria had a super showing at the UCI Supercross Cup in Stony Point, New York on Saturday and Sunday. Scott Smith showed great form in the elite men's race, finishing on the podium in 3rd place on Sunday after getting 6th the previous day. Jack Kisseberth was also there in the thick of the action, finishing in the top ten both days with his best finish on Sunday in 6th. Chris Niesen is earning his chops in the elite field and put in some really good efforts, while Coach Al Donahue joined the guys on the highly technical course with deep ruts, a pro-only rock field and a narrow creek crossing.

In the women's race, Jena Greaser moved up a spot from Day 1, and sprinted at the line getting third right behind Rebecca Fahringer (Amy D) on Sunday. 

Cameron Scott rallied through the soupy mud on Saturday, winning the men's 3/4 race. Dylan Belknap-Lerner raced in the same category. On Sunday, Mark Hewett raced in the 3/4's.

JAM Fund grand recipient Aiden Mapel continues to impress us, finishing 2nd in the junior 9-14 race on Saturday and getting fourth on Sunday.
