DeLong didn’t get off to the best start in the XC2 Class but he quickly charged his way into the lead on the opening lap. He slowly broke away from the field with each lap that passed and by the halfway point, he held a minute-and-a-half lead over the second-place rider. DeLong continued to charge in the final laps to post a victory of almost three-minutes in the class, while also earning an impressive top-five finish in the overall running.
