Heading into cross country, we have three riders in the top 10: Lauren Kieffer and Vermiculus are 4th on 26.7; Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot are equal 5th on 26.9; and Liz Halliday-Sharp and Deniro Z are equal 7th on 28.4. Read Tilly’s morning recap, which includes Hannah and Liz, here, and her afternoon recap, which includes Lauren, here.
