Rocky Mountain Cross

Team Bikeman - Race Reports

Number 9 in the series was held at Rocky Mountain Raceway which is the home of sprint car and drag racing as well as the road cycling crits during the summer. The weather was clear and cool at start time and the course covered the infield of the racetrack and selected spots through the bleachers and the back lot. The worst spot was the north side of the stadium that was a frost covered run up at about a 30 degree angle that turned into a long sidehill. This was where positions changed the most. I was in first place coming around the track and into the hole shot but got dumped hard at the run up. Lucky for me, the two guys that passed me slipped on the frosty grass and slid for a while giving me back the first spot. That was great until that damn garbage can jumped out into my path. Panic followed and I gave up four spots. I settled into a steady pace and began picking off those in front of me as they got tired or crashed on the frosty sidehill. I was closing in on first spot when time ran out. Warren finished 8th, Vince got 15th and I finished 2nd out of 20 starters. Check out the results at www.utahcyclocross.com.
