CRIMSON CROSS WRAP-UP

Conditions couldn’t have been more cross if we’d ordered them, with a full day of rain the day before and rain on and off for Sunday’s main event, it truly felt like cross racing.

First out of the gates was the B race breaking in the course for the afternoon racers. Gavin Grant took top honors in the massive field racking up 5 laps with Adam Cowley hot on his heels, coming in for 3rd place was Brent McMillan. Danielle Anstess took the top step in the women’ B race, with Stephanie Eusebi and Daniela Gebhart finishing out the podium.

The kids race followed with Makks, Eric, and Ryder rounding out the podium spots. With a break after the kids race it was time for the main event, Sundays A race was filled with hard hitters. A front group established themselves off the start and jockeyed for position with plenty of leader changes at the front. After a few attacks it was Paul DeBeer and Jan Roubal going blow for blow, with Paul coming around in the final sprint to take the top spot on the podium with Jan coming in for second and the American contingent Trevor Smela gaining ground every lap to come in for a close 3rd place. The womens A race saw Daniele Anstess taking the top step again with Daniela Gebhart coming in for second.

And that’s a wrap folks thanks to everyone that worked so hard to make this series happen and we will see you all next year!!!!

TURKEY CROSS RACE RECAP

Turkey Cross took place on the Algoma University campus, a brand new venue for local cyclocross competitors and fans.  The 2km course proved more challenging than many thought with tight turns, off camber sections and detour through the Athletic Centre.

The day featured 3 races: “A”, “B” and a Kids race.  Joel Wenham took the title in the 19 person “B” race.  Danielle Anstess was the first female across the line in a very competitive women’s field.  In the kids race Ryder Strachn crossed the line first followed by first time racers Mia Lloyd and Felix Schamp.  The “A” race saw plenty of lead changes as several top riders suffered flat tires.  In the end, Brent Krmpotich emerged victorious crossing the line just ahead of youngster Corey Ellah.

It was a fabulous day, everyone enjoyed the weather and the camaraderie.  We look forward to returning to this venue next year.

Special thanks to Jason Luther, Kim Chapman, Jamie Capisciolto and Greg Prodan for their help designing and prepping the course, the event wouldn’t have happened without you.
