Team USA wins World Trophy Cup for first time at ISDE in Spain

The US World Trophy Team made history today in Navarra, Spain, by bringing home the World Trophy Team overall win for the first time in the 91 year history of the event. If that weren't enough, Taylor Robert was the top individual finisher in the event, the same award Ryan Sipes won last year. In the meantime, the US Junior Trophy finished second to Sweden in a close battle to the end. Unfortunately, the Women's Trophy Team DNFed when Rachel Gutish DNFed with mechanical problems.
