Saima Park, Fitchburg, MA, October 20, 2001
Bright foliage was the backdrop to today's second annual Gear Works Cyclocross Race. Well over 200 cyclists from all over New England converged on the cross-country trails of Fitchburg's Saima Park. Among those were ten former and current national champions. Here's how it went...
In the Elite Men's category, former National Champion Mark McCormack beat older brother Frank McCormack, both professional cyclists for Team Saturn. Michael Broderick held off Harvard-native Rob Holt for third place. Scott Plante finished fifth for local team C.S. Ardagna.
In the Elite Women's category, Mary McConneloug of California bested Masters National Champion Jodi Groesbeck of Keene, NH. Canadian National Champion Shauna Gillies-Smith finished third.
In the Masters category, Paul Curley swept past National Champion Jan Wiejak on his ride to victory. Tim Hatz crossed the finish line three seconds later to take second place. Six seconds later Millbury-native Mike Bernard finished third.
This race was made possible by the generous support of Gear Works Cyclery and Wachusett Brewery.
