US Gran Prix of Cyclocross: Planet Bike Cup in Sun Prairie. Wisconsin


The 2011 Exergy US Gran Prix of Cyclocross p/b Greenware® launched out of the blocks today with a full day of racing capped off by two stellar Elite races that offered several clues of what to expect for the rest of the season.

In the Elite Women's Race, Nicole Duke of the Cannondale p/b team launched off the line to claim the inaugural Avid Shorty Ultimate Holeshot award.

As Duke powered to the front on the first lap, River City's newly crowned USAC Master's Road Champion, Sue Butler, surged to the front trading pulls with Duke.

Luna rider and USGP Champion Katerina Nash attacked as things were settling down after the hectic first lap in what would prove to be the winning move of the day.

Nash powered away and a chase group formed behind led by Duke, French National Champion Caroline Mani, Georgia Gould, Meredith Miller, Teal Stetson-Lee and Kaitlin Antonneau. Once it became clear that Nash's lead was secure, Gould powered away from the chasers to finish second with Miller finishing third and showing emerging good form.
