Rough rider

Marshall Mullen

Sixteen-year-old Malibu resident and mountain biker Marshall Mullen won first place in the age 18 and under category of the downhill mountain bike race in the 2010 California Golden State Championships. The event was held April 25 at Woodward West in Tehachapi.

Although it was only his second race ever, Mullen beat the second place rider by five full seconds and would have gotten sixth place if he had been in the pro category.
