The U23 Women’s race kicked off the 2016 Pan American Cyclocross Championships at Devou Park in Covington, Kentucky.

Ellen Noble (Aspire) and Emma White (Cannondale p/b CyclocrossWorld) took to the off-cambers and climbs of Devou Park to quickly distance themselves from Hannah Rae Finchamp (Clif Bar) and the rest of the field to make it a two-woman battle for the continental championships, jersey and UCI points.

With just over three laps to go, Noble attacked White, and slowly stretched out her gap over the next two laps to 20 seconds. White didn’t give up, chasing valiantly on the last lap to reel in Noble, but the gap was insurmountable.
