Day 2 - September 23: Springfield Oaks County Park

Page and Barnholt asert their dominance

Day two dawned hotter, drier and dustier than day one. The course was changed slightly from the day before with faster open sections. The dust and lack of moisture actually created slicker conditions, especially on the grassy sections where the thin layer of dust on the grass made it difficult to take turns at high speeds without risking a fall. At the start Jonathan Page grabbed the hole-shot and put the field in the hurt locker, immediately gapping everyone. Coming into the barrier section half way through the first lap, Page was several seconds in the lead with a cheeky Chris Jones bridging up while the rest of the pack suffered single file. As Jones made contact with Page, Reain also launched himself out of the pack. By the end of the first lap it was Jones leading Page and Reain, with the crowd going crazy at the sight of the field being shattered under the juggernaut.

As the chasing pack struggled to regain it's composure, Mueller became the first to attempt to bridge to the Jones, Page, Reain group. Sensing his training partner was closing the gap, Page started to work over Reain and Jones, who both slowly started to lose contact. Mueller spent a lap hop scotching over the Reain and Jones, to make contact with Page midway through the race. As the junction was made, Page put his head down and lead Mueller, quickly putting 30 seconds then 60 seconds on the two chasers. Jones and Reain battled with each other till Jones was able separate himself on a tight switch back turn.

As Page and Mueller crossed the finish line together for first and second, the crowd turned it's attention to a nail-biter of a battle for fifth place. Brent Prenzlow (Alan Factory), Adam Myerson (Nerac) and Steve Tilford (HRRC/Trek Stores/kccrossnationals.com) had been working together for much of the race and had closed to within 10 seconds of the Reain/Jones group with 2 laps to go, with Prenzlow having done much of the work. With Myerson sitting in Prenzlow throttled back and the three riders began a game of cat and mouse. Quickly closing from behind was the relentless Michael Garrigan (JetPower/Epic Ride), who had placed fifth on day one. Garrigan was able to make contact with the other three with a final 500 meters of twisty, grassy technical course to race. On a short, steep uphill that followed a tight section of two ninety degree turns, the four bunched up and a touch of wheels caused Tilford, Myerson and Garrigan to lose their momentum, forcing them off their bikes. These three quickly ran up the hill, chasing Prenzlow who was able to stay on his bike and open a five second gap. Only Garrigan was able to fully recover and closed to within a second of Prenzlow at the finish. Myerson and Tilford followed for seventh and eighth.

In the womens event Kerry Barnholt again proved to be too strong for her fellow competitors, once again she dominated from the start and held on to win with Anna Milkowski finishing as runner up for the second time in as many days.
