After giving up the top spot in the Pro XCT men's standings to Todd Wells (Durango, Colo./Specialized Racing) following the Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic p/b SRAM back in April, Bishop overtook Wells with a win at Windham to give him the series lead with 1195 points. Wells, who placed third at Windham, dropped to second place but is just 60 points behind Bishop with two events remaining. Mitchell Hoke (Boulder, Colo./Kenda-Felt) and Ryan Woodall (Ocala, Fla./Top Gear Bicycles), seventh and 13th at Windham, respectively, are tied for third place in the standings with 485 points apiece. Benjamin Sonntag (Durango, Colo./American Interbanc) rounds out the top five with 433 points.


Women
Davison used her victory at Windham to re-enter the top five of the Pro XCT women's standings and now sits in second place with 660 points. She trails only Chloe Woodruff (Tucson, Ariz./Crankbrothers Race Club) who leads with 705 points. Erica Tingey (Salt Lake City, Utah/Jamis) placed fourth at the Windham race and drops one spot to third place with 637 points, while Judy Freeman (Littleton, Colo./Crankbrothers Race Club) and Emily Batty (CAN/Trek Factory Racing) complete the top five in the women's standings with 461 and 445 points, respectively.
