Detroit Lakes' 15-year-old Jake Richards won the 16-mile point-to-point race at the nation's largest mountain bike event, called the Chequemegon Fat Tire Festival, held last weekend at Telemark Resort near Cable, Wis.
Richards, a freshman from Callaway, placed first among 845 riders.
The other event, a 40-mile point-to-point race, was won by runner-up world champion cyclocross rider, Jonathon Page of Northfield, N.H., and featured nearly 1,800 riders.
