Diamond Blackfan CX Results

The team and volunteers did an outstanding job putting on the Diamond Blackfan Cyclocross Challenge. We had a record turnout with 223 entries and everyone seemed like they enjoyed themselves. The weeks of hard work paid off and the event was a tremendous success. Special thanks to The Wheel Cyclery's Heather Jordan and Roger Harrison (a.k.a. Lanterne Rouge) for making this event possible.

Congrats to all the Cow Town members who not only worked their butts off building the course, they raced to top it off. We placed several riders on the podium. The hardest working man out there was Rich Anderson. He worked setting up the course, raced two classes and earned podium spots for both races. Great job to everyone who participated.
