(June 1, 2013) SPRING MILLS, Penn- Justin Lindine overturns his past years’ misfortunes to win the 2013 Trans-Sylvania Epic, while Amanda Carey takes her second overall win in the week-long stage race. After close racing all week, riders battled over an intense, 26-mile course in Stage 7 to confirm the final standings.
Heading into the seventh and final stage of the Trans-Sylvania Epic, race leader Justin Lindine (Redline/NBX) led the Open Men field by a comfortable fifteen minute gap over Sam Koerber (Progold) in second. The strong lead allowed Lindine to race more defensively in the final stage to retain his leader’s jersey, while the other competitors used their final opportunity to defend or improve their standings in the GC.
