Durango’s Howard Grotts faces tough test against Europeans at Rio Olympics

Durangoan Howard Grotts will face different terrain in Rio de Janeiro than he sees in Durango. The Olympic course doesn’t play to his strengths, but he’s still gunning for a top-10 finish.
Howard Grotts won’t have any help from other U.S. riders at the Olympic cross-country mountain bike race Sunday.
If Howard Grotts can handle three technical rock gardens at a fast pace, he may be able to creep toward the front of the Olympic mountain bike race on one short 3-minute climb.
