In its second year CrossVegas has become a fixture on the U.S. cyclocross calendar attracting over 7,500 spectators to the stadium setting of Desert Breeze Soccer Complex in Las Vegas. Held in the evening under the stars, CrossVegas was won for a second year by Ryan Trebon of the U.S. after an exciting 60 minutes of racing that included multiple lead changes among a field of U.S and international stars including Lance Armstrong participating in his first race since announcing his return to competitive cycling.

The 40-minute women’s race was won by Katie Compton of the U.S. The former World Cyclocross silver medalist used her superior strength to pull away from a strong field that included Olympians from the recent Beijing Games.
