Behind THE Barriers Presents Gloucester Race Weekend

Pin It

American cyclocross returns to what could be considered its ancestral home for the Great Brewers Gran Prix of Gloucester, one of the most coveted prizes in the sport. In its 15th year, the Gran Prix of Gloucester helped to set the standard for American cyclocross races, and continues to do so with some of the deepest and most competitive fields in the country. European Champion Helen Wyman (Kona Factory Team) led the women’s field, lining up alongside countrywoman Gabby Durrin (Rapha-Focus) and rising phenom Elle Anderson (Cal Giant Berry Farms / Specialized), who was looking to take home her third victory in as many starts, and with an eye towards a repeat of last weekend’s clean sweep.

Not many names were missing from the start list, too, for the men’s event, where Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus) and Ryan Trebon (Cannondale p/b were each looking to repeat their victories from 2012. Waiting in the wings, however, was Trebon’s Cannondale p/b teammate, and hometown hero, Tim Johnson, whose name is synonymous with the Gran Prix of Gloucester and whose career has come to define racing in New England. With thousands of riders in attendance throughout the weekend, the Gran Prix of Gloucester was an amazing spectacle. Check out what happened today on BTB TV Presents: The Great Brewers Gran Prix of Gloucester.
