In the XC1 class, teammates Kanney and Buttrick garnered decent starts. Kanney came out around 6th while Buttrick sat around 10th into the first corner. Kanney quickly moved his way up into the top three before having his first crash during the opening lap. He quickly remounted and went to work once again on the top five riders. On the second lap, he suffered another crash on the rocky course. Once again, he recovered - this time in 7th position. It was on the end of the second lap when he suffered a big crash that ended his race. Kanney hit a rock and got thrown over the bars hitting the ground hard and fast. The crash resulted in a broken wrist, ribs and punctured lung. Kanney was taken to the nearest Nashville hospital for further evaluation. It has been determined that he will be out for the remainder of the season.
