INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA—Mother Nature did her own wrenching at the 2017 Major Taylor Cyclocross Day 1, adjusting the UCI schedule and clipping race times with lightning delays.

Mother Nature stepped in to do some wrenching on the #MajorTaylorCX schedule. The lightning delayed the race schedule, combined UCI Elite Women and Junior Men's races (3 min gap) and shortened them to 30 mins, with a 50-min Elite Men's race to follow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cyclocross #ucicx #ovcx #indiana #procx #usacycling #indycx #uscupcx #uscup #shoair #wielrennen #veldrijden #MajorTaylorCX #MajorTaylor #MarianCycling @MarianCycling #MarianKnights #cyclocross #cx #mud #wielrennen #veldrijden

After the skies opened up and the thunder claps were well off in a distance, Lane Maher (Hot Tubes), Sunny Gilbert (Van Dessel) and Gage Hecht (Alpha Bicycle / Groove Subaru) harnesed their pent-up energy and unleashed it into electric rides.

The three took the shortened but mud-heavy races at the UCI event hosted by Marian University at the Indy Cycloplex.
