Tim Hortons MTB Nationals 2005 – XC Elite/Espoir Men

June 12, 2005 (Mont Ste-Anne, QC) – Geoff Kabush (BC, Maxxis) of Courtenay, B.C. snatched back the National Champion’s jersey today after a two-year hiatus. Kabush and Roland Green (BC, Kona-Les Gets) took over the race early on. The two rode together until Kabush finally launched an attack that stuck. In the end, Kabush charged to the finish with a minute over Green. Ricky Federau (BC, Gears Racing), last year’s National Champ, rode most of the race alone, chasing the Green-Kabush duo.

Max Plaxton (BC, Maxxis-MSC) led the entire seven laps of the Espoir Men’s race, finishing nearly 30 seconds ahead of second place, Andrew Watson (ON, Gears Racing). Matthew Hadley (NB, Radical Edge) placed third.
