Hot weather in Middleton Ohio was matched only by the hot racing action at the Java Johnny's/Lionhearts International race. The course was fast and undulating, and many seasoned riders commented that the course was fast and fun, and lent itself to pack riding.

The women's race saw Katie Compton flex her muscle and ride away from the majority of the country's top crossers. Soloing from the early laps, she powered away from the field that included Rachel Lloyd, who finished second, and Sue Butler, who finished third. Georgia Gould finished sixth after putting in a huge effort overcoming a flat; she was assisted in the pits by none other than Mark Legg-Compton, Compton's husband, and Kris Auer, mechanic for fourth place finishing Laura Van Gilder of C3-Sollay.com.

The men's race saw a flurry of attacks. Barry Wicks, Jeremy Powers and Jeremiah Bishop each took flyers at the front, none of which were successful until two laps to go when Powers was able to accelerate away from his rivals and take the win. Both Bishop and Powers used their crowd-pleasing bunny hopping skills to separate themselves from the pack. Bishop, the current US MTB short track champion finished second while Wicks, rounded out the podium. It was an identical podium to the previous day's Darkhorse Cyclo-Stampede.
