September 24/09 12:06 pm - CrossVegas: report and results

Posted by Editoress on 09/24/09

Almost 10,000 spectators filled Desert Breeze Soccer Complex in Las Vegas for the third edition of CrossVegas. With nine nations represented in the men’s race alone CrossVegas was the largest international field of cyclocross racers ever assembled in the U.S. But the anticipated international battle of America versus the world never developed.




Jamey Driscoll captured the Elite Mens race in a final sprint to the line against breakaway companion Christopher Jones after the pair eluded chasers throughout the 60 minute race. The pair of Americans escaped from a group of favorites in the early minutes of the race. A chase group of six riders contested the final podium spot and Jonathan Page, also of the U.S. took the third place honors. Three- time world champion Erwin Vervecken of Begium emerged as the strongest foreign rider with a fifth place finish in the largest cyclocross race in America, followed by Christian Heule of Switzerland who suffered a last lap crash that ended his hopes of a podium place. U.S. National Champion and two-time CrossVegas winner Ryan Trebon finished sixth ending his hopes of remaining the only champion of event.




In a repeat of the 2008 CrossVegas podium U.S. National Champion and the 2008 CrossVegas winner Katie Compton rolled away from the international field of women to build a lead of 89 seconds at the end of the 40 minute race. Czech rider Katerina Nash repeated her second place podium with Georgia Gould rounding out the third spot.
