by Molly Hurford

Beacon cyclocross brought wind, sleet, ice and rain for racers throughout the day, making the typically dry and fast course into a muddy mess for racers, who already struggled with the course features including the ampitheater of pain. In the women’s race, Nikki Thiemann just beat Laura Van Gilder in a sprint finish. The men’s race was taken by Craig Richey, who rode away to a solo victory.
