An overnight blanket of snow made the parcours very difficult, but Kona's Ryan Trebon and Seven Cycle's Mary McConneloug made it look easy in Saturday's 4th round of the Verge New England Championship Cyclo-cross Series, the Chainbiter 6.0.

McConneloug, the Olympic mountain biker, took advantage of her skills in sloppy, wet conditions to take the early lead and never relinquish it. Marianne Stover (Independent Fabrications) won the holeshot with McConneloug and got a gap on the rest of the field during the first lap, making the field chase. Several riders were up to the challenge, including AnnaMilkowski (Rona), Maureen Bruno-Roy (Cyclocrossworld.com), Celeste Drumm (HUP United), Sinead Fitzgibbon (CRCA/Aquafina), and junior national champion Stephanie White (Dansko/Wheelworks). But they were never able to make contact with McConneloug, who was on superb form today. Unfortunately for Stover, she could not stay with the Seven Cycles engine as the muddy conditions got the best of her bike and she eventually had to withdraw with mechanical problems.

Meanwhile, with the race for first over, Milkowski went clear from the field by the time the riders make the barriers for the second time. She acquired a pretty significant lead, but Bruno-Roy went to work and methodically reeled her in. By the 2 to go mark, Bruno-Roy had not only caught Milkowski but dropped her and powered away to a terrific 2nd place finish. Milkowski's good start was good enough to get her a comfortable 3rd place finish. Drumm survived a late challenge from Colorado mountain biker Gretchen Reeves (Rocky Mountain/Business Objects) to grab 4th on the day, with Reeves settling for 5th. McConneloug maintains her overall series lead going into Sunday's Cycle-Smart International.

The men started in warm and sunny conditions but the melting snow continued to slow different parts of the course. Defending race champion Mark McCormack (Clif Bar/Colavita) got a great start to lead out a huge pack early on. A pack of about 15 riders stayed together for the first lap and a half until Trebon attacked and brought McCormack and Jonny Sundt (Maxxis/Giant) with him. Recognizing the winning move, veteran Mark Gullickson (Redline) bridged up to the 3 and by the end of lap 3 it was Trebon, McCormack, and Gullickson in front, with Sundt slowly dropping back. While the lead 3 got comfortable, Trebon attacked again and went clear, leaving Gullickson and McCormack to battle a charging Jackson Stewart (Clif Bar). Once Stewart caught on, the two teammates worked over Gullickson and eventually dropped him with 4 to go. With Trebon gone, Stewart and McCormack worked well together to maintain 2nd spot and hold off Gullickson. Trebon took an easy win with McCormack and Stewart taking 2nd and 3rd respectively. Gullickson came in 4th and Todd Wells led the best of the rest by taking 5th spot. Trebon's win was just enough to vault him over McCormack into the series lead by one point; setting up a fierce fight for the Verge series lead on Sunday.
