The rain, wind and technical circuit may have given the Elite Men's field better odds against 'cross newcomer Chris Jones (Nerac), but the odds swung in Jones' favour, with the Nerac rider showing a marked improvement in his development. Jones covered the last few laps alone to take victory over Jesse Anthony (Jamis) and Mark McCormack (Clif Bar).

"I'm learning a lot," said Jones. "The riders took me to school last weekend in Kentucky. It was muddy the first day and I crashed out of the first group, second group and third group. So I've been practicing a lot with the technical stuff and it is really paying off."

Several races were held before the start of the men's event, making the circuit's twists and turns chopped apart by the day's end. But the weather and technical course made for 'desirable' cyclo-cross conditions, a welcome change to previous races in September and October.

The race started fast with a strong tail wind, holding the front riders together, but as they hit cross winds on the gradual hill at the course's rear the field split apart with Jones and Anthony off the front. Troy Wells (Clif Bar), Adam Myerson (Nerac), Davide Frattini (Colavita/Sutter Home) trailed the battle between the two New England Series leaders, but were unsuccessful in their attempts to close the gap.

Gradually riders like McCormack, Tristan Schouten (Planet Bike), Jeremy Krauss (Fiordifrutta), Osmond Bakker (Stevens) and newly crowned Canadian National Champion Mike Carrigan started to claw their way back into the chase group. The only rider to successfully bridge across was McCormack as the chase behind Jones and Anthony swelled to four riders.

At the front of the race, Jones built a sizeable lead on Anthony after the young Jamis rider faltered through the sandpit. Jones increased the tempo a notch, until he realized he was clear of Anthony and had the victory sewn up. "The course was unique because of the long up hill drag and that section was really hard along with the run up that was took a lot of energy away each lap," said Jones. "Once I got 30 seconds on Jesse, I didn't want to do what I did at Gloucester and flat again, so I just kind of eased off and rode as smooth as possible.

"I think my fitness is staying the same," added Jones. "I have that road fitness and I'm just maintaining it a little bit. My coach has got me on the program where I'm staying where I'm at. So I'm not any fitter, but my skills are getting much better."

The race for second place came to a surprising end when New England's former 'cross leader McCormack said goodbye to his chasing companions Myerson, Frattini and Wells, as he bridged across to Anthony on the penultimate lap. McCormack attempted a gap over his protégé but realized the effort off the front was much more difficult than that of Anthony's chase.

Anthony quickly closed the gap on his coach/rival competitor and took the lead through the last sand pit on his way to second place. The former US Cyclo-cross Champion has mentored many of the younger riders that have come up through the New England Series and as they begin to impress American 'crossers McCormack is pleased to have been of help. "It's just fun racing - period," said McCormack.

"I don't come here to win necessarily, but I do come here to have a good time and getting on the podium once in a while helps me feel younger than what my racing license says," he joked. "So today I was more interested in seeing Jesse stay up there because I want to see him stay in that leader's jersey. It's good for 'cross to have young guys like him trying to take over what I did these last years."

Bessette's solo victory

The women's race started with strong gusts of winds and rain due to a hurricane passing by to the east of Farmington. The conditions may have played a factor in the outcome of the first few laps, but Lyne Bessette's (Cyclocrossworld.com) inevitable win waited for her at the finish line regardless of rain or shine. Rebecca Wellons (Ridley Factory Team) took second place over Maureen Bruno-Roy, who slid out in the last corner before the line but was able to hang on for third place.

"For sure the wind and rain made the race harder, especially because this is the first slippery and wet race of the year for most people," said Bessette. "There was a lot of sand too and technical sections that were great for a rider like Maureen so I'm happy she did well today."

Bessette opened a gap the first time up the long hill and held a 10 second gap for the majority of the race. "I took the whole week off last week because I was feeling tired and I think this race was a great way to start off again," said Bessette, who is scheduled to compete in World Cup Koksijde in Belgium, famous for it's sand. "I actually like this kind of weather for 'cross. Because I was off all week I decided that once I got a gap, today I would just relax a little and not push too hard."

Bruno-Roy joined Wellons and Natasha Elliott (Stevens) with two laps to go, all three in the hunt for second place. "The corners started to get a little bit slick and once Bruno-Roy caught up to us I new she was going to be strong because she is a very good technical rider," said second placed Wellons. "There were lot of the exposed straight-aways that were really hard in the wind. Bruno-Roy used her advantage through the twisty technical section to gain a gap on us. She also did well with the off camber corner and carries a lot of speed through them."

The last lap came down to a battle between Bruno-Roy and Wellons after a crash took Elliott out of the chase. Bruno-Roy opened up a gap on Wellons through the technical section, but Wellons closed it before the last time through the sand pit. "We were together before the sand pit and I took a different line and felt confident after that about the final sprint," said Wellons. "Unfortunately we didn't get to sprint because she crashed before that in the last corner."

Bruno-Roy started the season with an illness and has been slowly building back her strength and speed racing through the cyclo-cross season. "It was really fun out there today even though it was a little slippery in the end," said Bruno-Roy. "I think I'm just getting my fitness now. I had a rough start today but was able to work my way back up showing that my fitness is improving. I hope that the weather gets fowl because the technical races are where I excel."
