Dombrowski Negotiates the Off Camber

Kansas City, KS – In the morning’s early races of the 2007 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships, we saw Amy Dombroski of Velo Bella/Kona dominate her women’s espoir race, overcoming a spill and banged up knee in the icy, snowy conditions to beat Kacey Manderfield of Verducci/Breakaway by over a minute. In her second cross season, she’s two for two at nationals. Kate Scheider of Fts/North Atlantic Velo took a strong third, just over a minute behind Manderfield.

The Espoirs race was a nail-biter, with Bjorn Selander of Ridley/Challenge taking an early lead, only to give it up to Jamey Driscoll of FiordiFrutta on lap 3. Driscoll increased his lead to as large as 15 seconds with two to go, but Bjorn, riding his first year as an espoir, clawed his way back, catching Driscoll with a 1/4 lap left in the race, and taking him in the sprint.

Andy Jacques Maynes Beats Beats Grant Berry

Andy Jacques Maynes Beats Beats Grant Berry

The 30+ Masters race featured another impressive come from behind win by California Giant Strawberry’s Andy Jacques-Mayne. Grant Berry of Rocky Mountain Chocolates took the holeshot and opened up huge gaps on a chase group including Jacques Mayne, Molly Cameron, and Justin Robinson. With a two laps to go, and a 20 second lead in hand, it looked like Berry had the win in hand. But Jacques-Mayne refused to give up, coming back from a huge deficit, and nearly season-ending summer crash, to catch Berry before the pavement and win the sprint.
