A day at the beach

Saturday was the start of the Cyclocross season on Colorado’s Front range. Under beautiful sunny skies Boulder Racing.com promoted its first of four races in the Boulder CX series.

Winding through the marina and along the beach’s crashing waves, the event took place at Boulder Reservoir. Over 200 racers showed up to suffer on the grueling 5.5 mile lap and make their best efforts to trudge through the deep sand in the 45-1 hour long races. Soon into each race, the riders realized that the fastest line along the beach was at the water’s edge, even slightly in it. Fortunately, the water was a refreshing relief to and warm weather and the difficult riding.

The Women’s Pro race started with a bang as a CU freshman, Michele "Micky" Buckley, a recent transplant from the cyclocross hotbed of Seattle, made an ill-fated first lap attack. Unfortunately for Michele, professional mountain bikers dominated the women’s field and quickly responded by taking command of the situation. A lead group consisting of Gretchen Reeves (Rocky Mountain), Melissa Thomas (Rocky Mounts) and Kerry Barnholtz (Sobe) soon sped away. Barnholtz mastered the technical sand riding and opened up a significant lead on her way to the podium. A mechanical forced Thomas to retire early and Reeves suffered a flat and also dropped out. Veritas rider, Margell Abel and Lora Heckman (Laurel St Racing) left the main field and Heckman’s background in running gave her the edge to take second with Abel settling for third place.

In the last event of the day, the competition was fierce during the Men’s Pro race. The course "matured" as it became packed-in from a day’s worth of races. Laps took less time as the speed increased and the riders formed multiple pace lines on the road sections of the course. An early move motivated by Brandon Dwight of the Excel Sports team put a number of riders up the road including Travis Brown (Trek) and the Red Rocks team consisting of Tim Faia and Steve Zdawczynski. A quick bridge by Devo rider Alan Obye formed what was to be the getaway group. Travis steadily started to pull away from the other riders as his singlespeed bike proved to be the correct gearing. On the flipside, Dwight suffered a flat tire forcing him to use a spare bike, which cost precious seconds. In the end, Obye finished second behind Travis with Steve Z rounding out the podium.
