To celebrate the 10th edition of what has been called the toughest ’cross race in North America, the Delaware Cyclocross Coalition of Delaware (DCCoD) changed this year’s Granogue Cyclocross, part of the Champion System MAC Series,  to a two-day format. Close to 1,250 racers signed on to partake in the celebration that is DCCoD’s “pimpin’ your cross since 2001.” Saturday’s three UCI sanctioned races illustrated three different ways to win a race.

The Elite men’s race was highlighted by Jesse Anthony of California Giant, who broke away from the Elite Men’s field and soloed to victory. Behind Anthony, a tight battle developed between Justin Lindine of BikeReg and Adam (a.k.a. “Newt”) McGrath of Feedback-Van Dessel for the final podium spots.  Lindine was able to out gun McGrath for the silver.

The Elite women’s race was a C3-Athletes Serving Athletes dominated affair with teammates Laura van Gilder, Dee Dee Winfield and Arley Kemmerer sweeping the podium. Winfield jumped to an early lead. But the tenacious Van Gilder clawed her way back to the hard-charging Winfield, and took a close sprint finish for the win. Kemmerer soloed in for the third place on the podium.

Granogue also hosted one of only four UCI Junior races on Saturday. Yannick Eckmann (Hottubes Development) and hometown favorite Jeff Bahnson (Van Dessel Factory Team) separated themselves from the hard-chasing pack, and a two-man battle unfolded. The duel came down to the final lap. On the final section of the course, Bahnson bobbled on the barriers and Eckmann was able to slip away to earn a hard fought win. Karl Hoppner (EMD Serano Specialized) finished third.
