HPCX Mens Podium: (L to R) Livermon, Riichey, Winterberg, Townsend, Favata

Jamesburg, New Jersey — It was a slushy, muddy mess that greeted racers at HPCX today. After getting an unheard of four inches of snow in Central New Jersey,the course completely changed from previous years and the barriers were removed on the grounds that the slush created enough running opportunities for racers.

Nikki Thiemann (Team CF), who won at Beacon the day prior, repeated her performance, flying through the mud. She told us she prefers to race in mud, so this was her weekend to shine. Laura Van Gilder(Mellow Mushroom) took second, also for the second day in a row. She was followed by Carolyn Popovich (Team CF) in third, Erica Yozell in fourth, and C3 Athletes Serving Athletes’ Arley Kemnmerer (who had to pull out of the race on Saturday after a crash) coming in fifth.

In the men’s race, a lead group of Swiss rider Lukas Winterberg (Philadelphia Cyclocross School), Canadian Craig Richey (Renner), Adam Myerson(Smartstop/Mock Orange Bikes), Travis Livermon (Smartstop/Mock Orange Bikes) and Jeremy Durrin (JAM Fund) formed early on. Jerome Townsend (Smartstop/Mock Orange Bikes) eventually bridged up after a chaos-filled first lap, and as the race progressed, Winterberg broke away from the group. Townsend (Smartstop/Mock Orange Bikes) eventually took second with Richey in hot pursuit for third. The five man podium was rounded out by Travis Livermon (Smartstop/Mock Orange Bikes) and Christian Favata (Richard Sachs).

Stay tuned for video interviews.
