Ryder Hesjedal (Subaru Gary Fisher) and Shonny Vanlandingham (Luna Chix) won today's final round of the NORBA series in Durango Mountain resort, Colorado. Hesjedal's win confirms his win of the overall series with Jimena Florit (RLX Ralph Lauren) holding on to her lead placing 8th in today's race.

The race also determined the US National Champion as the first American man and woman in the series would take the title. Jeremy Horgan Kobelski (RLX Ralph Lauren) kept his second place in the overall series after his third placing today and is now the men's US Cross Country Champion and in the men's event. The women's US Champion is Mary McConneloug (Seven Cycles), who placed 16 in today's race and third in the overall series.

After a rainy night the steep hilly course was wet today but according to riders it was a great course. It consisted of a lot of climbing, lots of broken up areas and some good descents. The crowds were also huge, especially on the main climb.

In the men's race Hesjedal took off on the first main climb very early in the race and forced a very quick gap. By the end of the first lap he was over a minute in front of the chasers, Todd Wells (Mongoose Hyundai) and Hogan Kobelski. By the bottom of the climb on the last lap Ryder was basically unmatchable and the race behind was for second place.

Wells and Horgan Kobelski were caught by four others and it was on the last climb that attacks began to split up the main group. Walker Ferguson attacked and Jeremiah Bishop tried to go with him. "I knew it would be a race to the top of the climb and that if I could get there I would be able to gold them off" said Bishop after the race. Bishop made it to Ferguson and went by him to finish in second place. Horgan Kobelski finished in third place, ten seconds behind.

Cyclingnews spoke with Hesjedal who finished 1'07" in front of second place. "I just took it easy on the starting loop in the first lap and was happy to sit in there. It

was when we hit the climb and I saw all the people screaming with the bells ringing that I got excited. I put it in the big ring and opened up a gap. I'm not sure what the mentality was behind me; maybe they just thought 'let him go', I'm not sure. It's a tough way to do it, taking off from seven minutes into the race but that's the way I like to race. I was confident and it was a great course with long climbs, lots of broken up areas and some good descents. I got into my rhythm and on the climbs and the descent was great for recovery. I just got a brand new bike which is very light so that really helped."

Ryder and most others now head to Europe for the World Championships which begin in Lugano, Switzerland on August 30. "I'm looking forward to it. It was encouraging to know that I could race this well at altitude. It gives me confidence going into the World Championships. That is the focus now, just to keep improving. It doesn't matter about the results of the race, as long as I know I am improving each time. It's not long now till the Olympics, so improvement is the key."

Fourth place in today's race and third in the overall NORBA series was Seamus McGrath who wasn't entirely happy with his race but looking forward to World Championships. "I wasn't really happy with my ride, but it was ok considering the altitude. Ryder took off right at the beginning and then there was a group of about 6 or 7 at the top of the second climb. I did a few attacks to soften some of the legs but it came down to the last climb and it all separated there. I'm looking forward to going to Europe now. It's really important for us as Canadians to do well there so we can qualify as many spots as possible for the Olympics next year. I'm totally psyched to go there. I always ride well at the end of the season.

One of the big stories of the year is second place getter Bishop. Riding this year for a regional team he has really risen through the ranks. Today he was disappointed at the end because he thought his second place had earned him the National title, not realizing that the title went to the first American in the series, not first American in today's race. His effort did move him from fourth American in the Series to second, however, just one spot from US Champion. He was excited by his race nevertheless when he talked with Cyclingnews after the race. "I was really surprised that there was such a big group of guys there in the last lap because there was really a lot of climbing in the course. On the last climb Walter Ferguson put in a big effort and I tried to go with him. Eventually I knew it would be a race to the top of the climb and that if I could get there I would be able to gold them off. Jeremy was breathing down my neck the whole time and it was like a drag race to the finish."

In the women's race the Luna Chix riders, Vanlandingham and Katerina Hanusova put the pressure on going up the first climb getting a good gap on the others. They worked together for a while before Vanlandingham edged away from her teammate holding a solo lead to the end of the race. Behind the field was spread out in ones and two's and Dara Marks (Sobe Cannondale) was sitting in third place.

It was in the final lap that Alison Sydor (Trek Volkswagen) started to pick up the place, passing both Marks and Hanusova in the last lap to take second place. Hanusova came in third place in front of Marks and Willow Koerber (RLX Ralph Lauren). The series leader Florit spent the day keeping an eye on her closet rival Chrissy Redden (Subaru Gary Fisher) and came in 8th, two places behind Redden but with enough buffer the keep the series lead. Mary McConnoloug who had really made a name for herself this year finished in 16th place and managed to keep her third place in the overall standings taking out the title for US Champion.

Cyclingnews spoke with a very smiley race winner Vanlandingham after the race. "I enjoyed today's course. I like sustained efforts so the long climbs were good for

me. Of course I was getting tired by the end but in general I felt good all day. My teammate Katerina was climbing really well today so I just paced from her up the first climb and we got a gap. Later I put a bit of time into her and that was it. I am also from here so I had the advantage of the altitude. I've ridden this course a few times. You can't ride it too much because the climbs are so steep and it saps your legs but it's a great course."

Sydor was happy with her race, but also happy for Vanlandingham. "I am from Sea level, so coming here I didn't really know how I was going to feel. I'm glad the race was a little shorter than they have been this year, it really helped with the altitude.' I knew I couldn't kill myself on the first lap so when Shonny and Katerina went I let them go and went my own pace. I felt comfortable riding with Jimena for a while and then she went by me and then on the last lap I really started to feel good. By the top of the last climb I had caught Jimena and then Katerina and I was able to hold them off to the finish. "Shonny was definitely the favorite coming into this race. She has had great form recently and I think everybody is really happy that she got this big result."

This afternoon will see the battle for the Mountain Cross series and for Mountain Cross National Champion.
