35 women took off on day two for a course that was largely reversed

Last year, several inches of snow on unfrozen grounds turned the course into a mudder’s delight, with running taking precedence over riding. This year, the course was hard and mostly dry, making the course, save a set of barriers, completely rideable, despite the frequent elevation changes—over 220 feet of climbing per 1.5 mile lap, sharp turns, and side hills.


West and McFadden controlling the front

For the elite women, the question was: could the Pivot-Maxxis duo of Courtenay McFadden and Ruby West use tactics to work over Rebecca Fahringer of Kona Maxxis? They couldn’t, as Fahringer continued her en fuego season. On Sunday, the Pivot women got closer to their goal, controlling the race for the first half, but unable to respond when Fahringer decided it was time to fire the jets.


Taylor Kuyk-White proving Richard Sachs’ steel is lit

For the elite men, newly-crowned Pan-American champ Kerry Werner of Kona Maxxis had to contend with three Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com riders: national champ Stephen Hyde, former Pan-Am champ Curtis White, and newcomer Lane Maher. He was in a hard spot, as the three amigos got to the front immediately both days and soon after started to tenderize Werner. They swept the podium both days, with White winning both.
