Maghalie Rochette Doubles Down in Mud at Supercross Cup, Curtis White Sprints to Victory

Day 2 of Supercross Cup at Rockland Community College in Suffern, N.Y. was cold, windy, snowy, and slick. The off-cambers were far more treacherous than Day 1 having endured rain and snow overnight. The UCI Category 2 (C2) race would come down to another sprint finish for the Elite Men, with Curtis White (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com) taking the win over Jeremy Martin (Focus CX Canada) in the final turns. For the Elite Women, Maghalie Rochette (Clif Pro Team) put in dominating performance to solo to victory with an impressive one minute and forty-five second gap over second-place Crystal Anthony (Maxxis-Shimano Pro Cyclocross). Day 2 of Supercross Cup made the sixth day of competition for the Vittoria Northeast Cyclocross Series presented by Cycle-Smart, the only UCI series in the U.S.

 

Women

Quebec Native Rochette would take her second win of the weekend, controlling the race from the beginning, as she did Saturday. "Cassie Maximenko got the hole shot and I saw she took a line and I could see a little bit of grass on the left of her, so I went in the grass and I was able to create a little gap. I think it bunched up behind me, so I just kept pedaling and opened a little gap," said Rochette. "My only strategy was to keep it clean, trying to keep my momentum along the whole race. It worked out, so it is good. It was challenging, superfun course.

When asked about her upcoming race plans after her successful streak, Rochette noted "I've been kind of going since the beginning of mountain bike season, and that was early March. So I'm taking little break now in the hope of building fitness again and being fresh for Worlds."

Rebecca Fahringer (Amy D Foundation) would repeat with another third place finish. "It ended up being the same podium as yesterday, but it was a much different race. Maghalie was gone from the start, so that was exciting. There was no move, she got the hole shot, kept going and never slowed down. Frankly, I don't know how it happened. She's just mega-fit and has great english in the mud. Crystal, I think, broke a chain or had some sort of a mechanical on the start."

Fahringer commented on the tough course conditions and said "It's days like today that I love running Stan's NoTubes, because under the mud you can't see what's under there, roots, rocks. I felt comfortable just diving into everything. I had fun in the mud, and got third place."

 

Men

After being out-sprinted yesterday, White was on a mission from the beginning, wasting no time stringing out the field in windy conditions. The win was his sixth of the year on the USA Cycling Pro Cyclo-cross Calendar. As a New York resident, White noted "It was a solid weekend. I love racing in New York. New York always brings out the best in the weather," White laughed. "I was pretty motivated after yesterday. I knew these conditions (wind, cold) suited me well. I felt like I was riding the course really well in the first half. I got a really solid gap, but what worked for the first half of the race didn't work for the second half. The course changed so much. Jeremy (Martin) came up pretty quick. I wanted to save something for the finish, but I let him take the lead a little bit and just watched him take some lines. There were ruts over there in the second half that weren't there the first half. I didn't have the benefit of following other riders (in the first half) and seeing all the lines."

As the course conditions changed, White found himself off the bike more frequently. "I put a lot of work into running. But the two main runups weren't really the deciding factor. It came down to the second to last corner. We both happened to sprint into it as fast as we could, and then dismount, and having to run it. I think it was just whoever led in the last corner."
