Nash and Nys Take Dominant Wins at Cross Vegas 2013 – Updated: Report, Full Results, Gallery

Pin It

While she skipped Cross Vegas last year due to injury, Nash is no stranger to the top step of the podium and clearly was out to start the season strong. She remained in control for the rest of the race, and it was fellow mountain biker (and current short track and cross country National Champion) Lea Davison who came in for second, followed by another regular on the MTB World Cup circuit, Nash’s teammate Catharine Pendrel. “I’m good at having and coming back from bad starts,” Pendrel admitted, referencing an early race crash. “So that worked to my advantage here.”

Behind Pendrel, Meredith Miller, recovered from last season’s foot injury and recently retired from road cycling, surged to drop the remnants of the pack and snag the fourth place spot. Behind her, Giant’s Kelli Emmet and CrankBrothers’ Chloe Woodruff added to the MTB domination. Behind them, Rapha-Focus’s Gabby Day and Cal-Giant’s latest addition, Elle Anderson, came in for seventh and eighth, respectively. Rolling in for ninth was Olympian and chef Georgia Gould, who crossed the line holding a rubber chicken.

That was worse coverage than in years before. And yes I am talking about your live coverage. Who can't get just one guy a beer to move the fly over camera?

Was I the only person that missed the start of the race, could have just been me....

 @jamesmurdockbtc Rest assured though in terms of web coverage, we've just scratched the surface, and just like we did in previous years, we'll be pushing out a lot more in the next few days. Thanks for checking out the report.

 @jamesmurdockbtc James, I'm sure the producer (hired by CrossVegas) and the production company (CyclingDirt) would love to hear any feedback. Contact them perhaps? We can't relay this since we don't have your contact info, but we had nothing to do with the live video coverage, whether it was good or bad.
