2008 Colorado Cyclocross State Championship Photos

Here are the State Championship shots from the ONE...THE ONLY....(drummroll please)PHOTO-CYCLE.COM
Cyclorcoss, Front Range Rocky Mtn style!
Long shadows for fast legs....
Another warm sunny and dry day graced the course, riders, and spectators.

The sand pit really wasn't ridable with it's rutted out hairpin turn. Although, it did provide for plenty or crashes and good spectating.

The Pro Ladies are strung out on the first lap with the usual suspects at the front. Kerry Barnholt led it out, and was kept in close check by Lisa Strong of team Tough Girl and Karen Hogan of Chipotle-Titus for the entire race, whom finished 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Boulder local Velo Bella racer, Jen Tilley rode a great race, and won a two up sprint to finish 4th out of 31 ladies in the open/pro womens field. In addition to the Mavic neutral support team in the pit area, Dale's Pale Ale brought the RV & donated brewski's to Valmont Bike Park who along with VeloNews drummed up $1,600 for the park

Kerry Barnholt, our Womens 2008 Colorado State Cyclocross Champion. Good riding Kerry!
I had a terrible start but started working my way forward until...
I took a bad line through a left hander & paid for it.
Aaahhh that's better.
Last lap for the pro men and Jake leads it.
