Liv Racing Collective athlete Isabella Naughton came in second place at the Big Mountain Enduro in Brian Head, Utah after winning the first and final stages of the eight stage enduro.

At the fourth round of the Big Mountain Enduro in Brian Head, Utah, Isabella Naughton concluded the weekend with an impressive second-place finish in the Pro Women's category. The tight race saw Naughton win three out of the eight stages, clocking in with a total time of 36:14.24, trailing the first-place finisher by just under four seconds.

Reflecting on her performance, the Liv Racing Collective rider expressed, "The best part of the race for me was coming back and winning the last two stages. I had a deficit to try and make up from a rough stage 6, and although I didn’t make up enough time for the win, I was happy to see I could still push hard in the last two stages."

Following a third-place finish at the USA Cycling Gravity Mountain Bike National Championships last week, Naughton felt well-rested and prepared for this race. "I did everything I could to recover from Nationals. Proper sleep and nutrition were the name of the game, especially at a high elevation. This was my first time here, but I felt confident in myself and my bike and knew I could battle for the top step."

Competing on her Intrigue LT Advanced Pro, Naughton aims to carry the momentum as she enters the final round of the Big Mountain Enduro, on August 6th. "I am happy to secure second place against some super fast competition and put my bike up on the podium again! I am hungry for more and excited for the finals in Big Sky!"
