When did Nash know she had the win? Even with such a large gap, victory was never assured for the Czech racer. “There are so many times when things don’t go right at the end so I always hammer all the way to the finish and that’s where I celebrate.”

Nash’s win kept the title from the Americans yet again, after Dutch Sanne van Paassen’s win in 2012, and Canadian Lyne Bessettes victory in the first running of Cross Vegas.

The Cannibal Feasts in Vegas

It seemed as though every racer knew there was one man to beat: the King of ’Cross, the Cannibal himself, Sven Nys. Nys himself? He was afraid of getting beaten by the heat. “Today I stayed all day in my hotel, because I was afraid of the heat, and I waited for the sun to go down,” Nys said of his pre-race prep.

“I’ve done three laps, and I felt okay, and I felt ready for my first race of the season,” Nys recalled. But all the time, since I started my cyclocross career, you get nervous for your first race. With the jet lag and everything around this race, I was also nervous. With this jersey, it’s not so easy.” The winningest cyclocross racer also gets nervous, and also is afraid.

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.
