'Cross starts out HOT!
By Chris Setter
For the second year in a row, temperatures ranged into the upper 70's to usher in the cyclocross season in Wisconsin. With the hot temperatures came hot racing and hot numbers, as nearly 150 racers attended Moe's Burrito 'Cross at Lapham Peak State Park in Delafield , WI , on Sunday, October 2.
Well known by area racers, Lapham Peak has been a home to Wisconsin 's cyclocross series debut race for each of the last 3 seasons. Although there were similarities to races past, this year's course featured a new, tough climb, leading to a wicked run-up each lap. Not everybody loved the off-camber U turn followed by steep run-up, but since when were "run-up" and "fun" supposed to be in the same sentence? Everyone did agree on one thing, the hill was hard.
Throughout the day, races were hard fought as categories posted record numbers of riders. Battles continued through to the culminating events of the day, the Women's and Men's Category-A races.
In the women's race, Team Wisconsin 's Patt Kaufmann held off Kristin Wentworth (Nova/IS Corp) and Samantha Kaplan (Capitol Velo Club) for the win. Kaufmann capitalized on her home-field advantage, as she had a sneak-peak at the run-up during the local 'cross practice in weeks leading up to the race.
The men's race came down to a heated sprint between Trek VW Midwest Factory rider Tristan Schouten, and Alan Factory's Matt Kelly. There may has well have been no barriers at all, as both riders bunny hopped their way through each lap, making the hot temps look easy!
CZ Velo would like to thank and congratulate all of the racers and spectators who showed up to open the cyclocross season in Wisconsin . Also, huge thanks goes out to event sponsors Moe's Southwest Grill, providing food for volunteers and racers, and Wheel and Sprocket, providing merchandise prizes. Lastly, special thanks to Renee Callaway and the Capitol Velo Club for co-sponsoring the Women's B and Junior Women's Categories. It's commitment like that which will bring more new women into the exciting sport of cyclocross!
