Katerina Nash Repeats as Czech National Champ

Pin It

MNICHOVO HRADISTE, CZECH REPUBLIC – While most of us in the US were focused on the domestic National Championship scene in Bend, Oregon, Katerina Nash (Luna) took the top form that she proved once again in the Portland USGP weekend, where she took back-to-back wins, got on a plane, and successfully defended her Czech National Championship jersey.

Although most European countries host their championships in early January, the Czech Republic elected to have earlier championship races for the women and junior and fields. Despite the earlier time slot, the weather conditions were full-on winter with deep snow blanketing most of the course. According to Nash, it’s some of the deepest snow that she’s ever raced in, but it didn’t seem to slow her down too much. “Cyclocross is a winter sport, and we must fight in whatever conditions come,” said Nash, who put over a minute into World Cup regular Pavla Havlikova. The Luna rider looks on track to improve upon her fourth place finish at last year’s World Championship race in Tabor.

Jakub Skala won the Juniors title just ahead of defending champion Vojtech Nipl, who suffered a crash. The Elite men’s race, which was round seven of the Czech Toi-Toi Cup and not a championship race, saw Jaroslav Kulhavy take the win.
