Day 1 of the Cincinnati Cyclocross weekend finally brought muddy conditions to U.S. UCI cyclocross. It also marked the beginning of the second half of the seven-race US Cup-CX series.

The day belonged to the Cannondale p/b team. Kaitie Keough took the win in the Women’s race, and Stephen Hyde took over first in the US Cup-CX series with a win of his own.
