CrossVegas 2013

Just two miles from the land of lost wages, CLIF Bar CrossVegas packed the Desert Breeze Sports Complex yet again for this years event. CrossVegas is the largest and most attended cyclocross race in America. With UCI points on the line, several european racers made their way over to the states to join in the gamble. Katerina Nash took the win in the Women’s Elite race with American racer, Lea Davidson hot on her heels. Lea just returned from Europe taking a fourth place finish at the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in Norway. Meredith Miller, officially not officially retired, lead early in the race before Nash pushed ahead and never looked back.

The Men’s Elite race was predicted to be a slaughter by World Champ Sven Nyes. Well, don’t tell Ryan Trebon he can’t chase down those stripes. Sven immediately developed an early gap with Ryan closing in, inch by inch. By lap two, Ryan was on the rear wheel of Nyes taking duties at the front. Unfortunately, keeping up with a World Champion often means gassing out early, which is what happened to Ryan as he ended up falling back to fourth place behind Jeremy Powers and Jeff Kabush. Sven went on to take the win as expected, looking unstoppable.
