Stoltz, McQuaid XTERRA Midwest Cup In Michigan

Melanie McQuaid celebrated her 36th birthday in style by joining fellow three-time XTERRA world champ Conrad Stoltz on the top step of the XTERRA Midwest Cup podium at Fort Custer State Park just outside of Battle Creek, Mich. on Sunday.

Stoltz and McQuaid are now two-for-two in XTERRA Cup Series racing, as both captured the first race of the year at Lake Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this month. The duo, along with a few dozen other traveling XTERRA pros, will make their way to Shelby County, Alabama for race No. 3, the XTERRA Southeast Cup this Saturday (May 23).

“The community here totally embraced this event, and it was like XTERRA old school with everyone hanging out together along with the whole town,” said McQuaid. “The course is fabulous, Battle Creek wins top honors for total friendliness, I had the home stay of the century, the bike store (Team Active) rolled out the red carpet, and it was all-in-all just an awesome experience.”
