CXLA Day One UCI Elite Report

NASH, DRISCOLL SEIZE CXLA DAY 1 by Phil Beckman PB Creative


Pro ‘cross racing returned to Los Angeles this weekend, for the first time at the Greek Theater in Griffith Park. Day 1 of CXLA was conducted under blue skies and dry, short-sleeve conditions on a 2.5km course featuring considerable climbing and enough technical trickiness to keep even the most savvy bike handlers on their toes.

@katkanash is alone off the front and riding like a boss! #cyclocross #SoCalCross

Katerina Nash (Luna Pro Team) wasted little time jumping to the fore of the 20-rider UCI Elite Women’s field and was never headed in the 45-minute foray. At the conclusion of her six laps, Nash had more than a minute on Amanda Miller (Boulder Cycle Sport/YogaGlo), who had gapped Courtenay McFadden (GE Capital/American Classic). Nicole Duke (Marin Bikes/Spy) and Emily Kachorek (Squid) rounded out the podium.
Jamie Driscoll (Raleigh/Clement) escaped a group of six that had formed at the front of the UCI Elite Men’s race around the halfway point of that hour-long event. Two laps later he was able to climb away to a solo lead on the course’s longest, hardest ascent. Adam Craig (Giant Factory Off-Road Team) and Ben Berden (Raleigh/Clement) got the better of Shawn Milne (Boulder Cycle Sport/YogaGlo) to form the final chase group. Craig dropped Berden on the final lap, but both were well behind Driscoll, who cruised in with a 20-second cushion. Milne held on for fourth, with Cody Kaiser (LangeTwins/Specialized) completing the top five.
Saturday at CXLA also included a UCI-point-scoring Junior 17-18 event, captured by Liam Dunn (Clif Bar Development CX Team). Brannan Fix was runner-up, followed by Eric Brunner.
