Microsoft Emerald City Cyclocross Series #2

South SeaTac Park, September 28, 2003

Report by Craig Undem

Spend one day watching cross racing in Seattle this fall and you will see that cyclocross does not need its characteristically wet, muddy, and cold conditions to provide pain and suffering. It felt more like the middle of summer as opposed to the beginning of fall as dry conditions and above 85* temperatures welcomed over 270 riders to the second race in the 2003 Microsoft Emerald City Cyclocross Series, and the first race in the Seattle vs. Portland Grail de la Grunge competition - welcome Portland!

The newly designed north SeaTac course would present every rider with challenging single-track, deep and thick sand pits, heavy clouds of dust, and scorching temperatures. Today's race continued to deliver excitement and entertainment, complete with drama in the intense battle for first place in the free kids 12 and under race at noon, and raffle prizes provided by race day sponsor, Starbucks doubleshot.

Competition is always intense in the beginning categories, and the beginning women are no exception. Elizabeth Salvo threw down the hammer and the sparks flew as she danced through the sand to finish above Amara Boursaw (Gregg's Cycles), and Lisa Miller in the women's C category. All three of these rides moved up form their mid-pack finishes from the week before at North SeaTac.

The beginning men saw new faces on the podium as these guys continue to get faster and faster. James Johnson plowed through the pack to finish first, and Chris "Dobie" Dobrick answered back with a close second, saying, "you just wait until next week!" Bryce Given finished third in his series debut.

The Jr. A field saw some hard racing as riders refused to sacrifice their overall positions. Collin Carbaush, Devin Anderson, and Severin Skolrud provided an instant replay as they once again placed 1 - 2 - 3 across the line.

Two riders - Joey Rogerson and Nathan Bannerman - met face to face for a back-and-forth battle for points in the Jr. B competition. In the end, it would be Joey across the line in 1st place.

In the Jr. C category, Grady Weiler held onto his first place position with a repeat first place finish over Noah Buckley and Benny Swendberg

JD Fette, Ethan Mair, Paul Sales placed themselves 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, continuing their domination of the age 9 - 12 Jr. D category.

Jadine Riley and Denielle Crandel maintained their positions at the top of the Women's B field, while new comer Lisa Given finished third. Lisa upgraded after proving her speed and power with a strong finish in last weeks women's C race.

Dan Neyens of EA cross could not be touched as he once again made a seemingly effortless launch of the front of the killer B's group. Dan continued to ride smooth to roll across the line for 1st. Matt Hayes and Mark Young would work hard to close down the gap, but would instead have to settle for 2nd and 3rd.

The master B men saw another huge field of 54 riders come to the line. Joe Sales would be the first to emerge from the dust to finish first, with Glen Conley in a close second, and David Sullivan in third.

Adam Van Dyke spun his way into the first place position of the single speed category. Adrian Hegyvary also moved up, finishing second. Ed Husted finished in third for his first race of the season.

Cross A

The super fast women never cease to be amazing! After having put on an incredible show at the Star Crossed event the night before, these women came out strong, less than 24 hours later, for an encore presentation. Josie Beggs of Redline raced as hard as she could to shut down Kona's Anne Knapp - as if seeking revenge for their intense battle the night before. Rhonda Mazza of Sellwood Cycles rode hard to hold onto the train and complete the trio by finishing third.

The Masters Women field continues to be dominated by Ti Cycles' Nicola Marr and Kathy Smith, who placed first and second respectively. Kim Lucas survived the punishing conditions and landed a third place finish for the day.

Every week these guys prove that 'masters' does not mean old and slow. In the Master A field, we saw a runaway win by Rich Maile of Clif Bar. Randy Daniels pulled off another top finish for the Ti Cycles team by finishing 2nd, and Tim Ellis finished with a very respectable third place

This week's races produced mixed results at the top of each category as several riders upgraded and changed categories. Perhaps the biggest change in the A Men was the absence of Dale Knapp of Kona, K2s Johnny Sundt, and Russell Stevenson. Without this locomotive engine at the front of the 'A' train, many new faces made their way to the podium. As the elite men blasted off the line and disappeared in a cloud of dust, it would be Amoy Jacques-Maynes of Clif Bar who would dominate the grueling sand pits and dusty single track to battle his way to the top over Kona's Eric Tonkin, and Adam Craig of Giant, who finished in third place.
