The 2015 CrossVegas World Cup had a few important firsts: the first World Cup on North American soil, and Jeremy Powers’ (Aspire Racing) sixth place finish was both his personal best, and the best finish by an American Elite Man in World Cup history.

The Book of Cross: Chapter 1 takes a look at Powers’ CrossVegas experience, including his preparation, race footage and post-race reaction.

Take a closer look at his historic ride from behind the scenes, and be sure to take a look at Cyclocross Magazine’s in-depth coverage of CrossVegas!
