The final stop of the 2015 SCOTT Enduro Cup by Vittoria took place on Aug. 15. After stops in Moab, UT, Sun Valley, ID, and Canyons Resort, UT, an overall winner was crowned in each category.
By maintaining consistent finishes at all three stops, Utah-local Cody Kelley earned the overall championship in the Men’s Open division. He narrowly beat out Vittoria athlete Macky Franklin.
“It was the goal for the year,” said 21-year-old Kelley about the overall series title. “I’m stoked. I had tons of fun on this course. The Downhill track was pretty gnarly so it tested everyone’s skills. You really had to be a good bike handler.”

2. Macky Franklin, 330 points
3. Bart Gillespie, 282 points
With three podiums (two 2nd places and one 1st place) Reno-based Teal Stetson-Lee secured the Women’s Open overall title. Even though she got second at Canyons, she was pleased by her performance. “I had a clean race,” she said. “All of my stages were smooth, didn’t have any mistakes.”
Only her first year on the SCOTT team, Stetson-Lee has not been known for her enduro racing—until now. At the Canyons race, she won stage 4, arguably the most technical of all of the 2015 stages. “I won by 5 seconds,” she said. “I shocked myself since my background is cross country. I’m really glad it was a stage today because it made racing more dynamic.”
Women’s Open Top 3 Overall

3. Syd Schulz, 300 points
