December 2/12 10:05 am - NBX Gran Prix of Cyclocross: Day 1 report and results, Elliott and Lafreniere top 10

Posted by Editoress on 12/2/12

An extraordinarily strong field of Elite Women readied themselves on the start grid, including favorites to win the series Crystal Anthony ( and Mary McConneloug (Team Kenda-Seven-NoTubes). Arley Kemmerer (C3-Athletes Serving Athletes) took off from the whistle and lead into the first turns of the course. A group formed on her wheel and built a gap on the field, with Laura Van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom) and Elle Anderson (Ladies First Racing) getting away from Kemmerer, leaving her to chase with Anthony, Cassandra Maximenko (Silverbull/Bones/Thule), and New England's favorite racer Mo Bruno Roy (Bob's Red Mill p/b Seven Cycles).


Anderson and Van Gilder worked together to keep the others at bay, knowing very well the prowess of the chase group. An attack from Van Gilder in the last lap proved one that Anderson couldn't match, as Kemmerer, Anthony, and Bruno Roy each attempted attacks on the chase to claim the third podium spot. Bruno Roy suffered a run-in with a tree, leaving her unhurt but ruining her chances at a podium, and Kemmerer broke free from the rest in the melee.


The final placings for the day's race: Kemmerer third, Anderson second, and Van Gilder with an amazing win. "Laura was riding really strong today," noted Elle Anderson of her competitor. Meanwhile, Ellen Noble (Trek Cyclocross Collective) moves into the lead for the U23 Women's division.


Indeed, the final race and last stand for series points in the Shimano New England Professional Cyclocross Series presented by Verge means Sunday's racing is sure to bring plenty of excitement as these talented racers in their top form of the season battle it out on one of the best cyclocross courses in New England.
