Ned making sure his wheel clears the barriers...just barely!
The clocktower and the group.
The biggest cross win of Ned's career!
Another glorious day of cyclocross racing in Durango today. 15 racers decided to work of the mashed pototoes and gravy in the Turkey Tumble. A different and altered course for the day was fun for all except the victims of flat tires.
From the gun it was Eric Ransom (Agisko) to the front followed closely by Chad "Chainsaw" Cheeny and Brenden Schafer. Ned Overend had a slow start, but kept a close eye on the competition for the first couple of laps. Ned must be taking his Centrum Silver and Ensure smoothies because on the next lap he was off the front. With three laps to go it was still a close race with Overend, Chainsaw Chad, and Schafer all together. Overend dumped it in the corner and this left Chad and Brenden with a small gap. Soon Ned would regain the lead on hold everyone off for the victory.
The girls race was intense with lead changes happening all day! Not really. Onawa and Molly pretty much just rode around fow a couple of laps. Hummel still managed to dump it in a corner and get some road rash...OUCH! Thanks to everyone for coming out this weekend and don't forget about the Finals, Muscle Cross, Downtown next Sunday!
