KTR Michigan Double-Cross - C2

USA, September 22-23, 2007

Day 1 - September 22: Springfield Oaks County Park

Page and Barnholt take first wins

Day one of Double-Cross started with hot and dry conditions. The Elite Men's field was stacked with talent, with Jonathan Page (SunWeb/ProJob), Steve Tilford (HRRC/Treks Stores/kccrossnationals.com), current Canadian CX Champion Greg Reain (Calyon/LiteSpeed), Adam Myerson (Nerac Pro CX Team), Chris Jones (Nerac Pro CX Team), Tristan Schouten (Planet Bike), Brent Prenzlow (Alan Cycling), and 2003 Swiss U23 cyclo-cross champion Michael Mueller (Inovex) lining up.

From the gun a ferocious pace was set with a select group of 10-12 being sorted out from the large field of nearly 50 racers, with Greg Reain leading the field for the first lap. Adam Myerson would later comment, "It was like the time Lance Armstrong raced the SF Grand Prix, no one wanted to pass Jonathan Page, everyone was giving him a lot of respect. It was almost like he was riding in a bubble". The bubble burst when the field came through the paved section at the start finish. A momentary lull caused the pack to bunch up. Immediately, Nerac Pro Cycling racer Chris Jones put in a powerful attack, quickly drawing out Canadian CX Champion Greg Reain, Jonathan Page and Michael Mueller. Jones, Reain, Page and Mueller wasted no time establishing a significant lead over the chasing riders. These four would race together for several laps.

About midway through the race Jonathan Page put in a tremendous surge on the long, grassy incline leading to the uphill wooded section, pulling Mueller with him. Working together Page and Mueller distanced themselves from Jones and Reain, who also teamed up and worked together to limit their losses. As Page and Mueller raced their way over the last 500 meters of the final lap Mueller bobbled a difficult off camber 120 degree turn to open the door for Page to surge ahead and secure the win by 15 seconds.

As with the men's field the women's was the deepest and most competitive to ever race in Michigan. Taking the line were Michigan cyclo-cross scene stalwarts Anne Schwartz (Flying Rhino) and Rachel Steele (Bicilibre). However, the out-of-towners had other plans. Picking up on the good karma she's had in Michigan, which saw her triumph at the Midwests biggest mountain bike race, the ICEMAN COMETH, Kerry Barnholt was ready to rock. Other women who came to play were former national champion Sami Fournier (Organic Athlete) as well as Anna Milkowski (Velo Bella/Kona) and Catherine Walhberg (Mesa Cyclery). Barnholt followed on the first lap while Anna Milkowski (Velo Bella/Kona) took the lead. Barnholt then went onto to put in relentless charges that saw her quickly ride away from the field and take the win, with Milkowski in second.
