GLOUCESTER, Mass—It’s been quite a wild ride for Emma White (Cannondale p/b Cyclocross World) at the Craft Gran Prix of Gloucester cyclocross race. White first started her Gloucester journey with the kid’s race years ago, hopped up to the Cat 3 Men’s race, and now has won the Elite Women’s race after 40+ minute battle with Ellen Noble (Aspire).

Behind the battle of America’s young cyclocross stars, it was crystal clear who would be fighting for the final podium spot, with Christel Ferrier-Bruneau (SAS-Macogep) and Crystal Anthony (Maxxis Shimano) taking up the chase. Ferrier-Bruneau would take third.

Before the race began, White reflected on the significance Gloucester has for her:

With her win, White duplicated Noble’s 2016 Day 1 Gloucester result in winning both the U23 and Elite categories.
