The Tsalteshi Cycle Series culminated with the PsychoCross 2015 on Saturday at Tsalteshi Trails.

PsychoCross was a 14-mile loop which used some of the trails, some of the singletrack, and some of the areas of Tsalteshi riders never even knew existed.

Nathan Kincaid was the first to complete the lap, coming in at 1 hour, 15 minutes, 17 seconds. Adam Rothmans was second at 1:16:32, while Tony Eskelin was third at 1:16:57.

Angie Brennan was the first woman across the line, clocking 1:29:42 to also take eighth overall. Catriona Reynolds was the second woman at 1:43:05, while Jen Showalter was the third woman at 1:52:11.

Thursday, a Mark Your Improvement Race was held at Tsalteshi. The course was the same as the first in the Tsalteshi Cycle Series this summer, so riders could see how much they had improved.

Kincaid also won this one in 24:21, while Brian Beeson was second at 25:12 and Scott Huff was third at 26:38. Simone Owens was the lone woman to do the race, finishing 11th at 33:30.
