LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY – It was no contest today as Boulder Cycle Sport’s Russell Stevenson took an early lead and cruised to victory in the Men’s 40-44 race. He was followed by Brian Sheedy a minute behind in second, and Justin Robertson in third.

“It’s always out of control,” said Stevenson. “Anything can happen. It was all about managing the circumstances, and the circumstances were totally epic.  I didn’t even feel my legs, honestly. Your bike’s carrying extra pounds of mud, and you’re just trying to float wherever you can find it.”

“I’m gonna have a beer, enjoy my birthday, watch the races tomorrow and then go home and enjoy my family.”

“It was hard,” said Robertson. “I was basically just by myself by about ¾ in. It was no man’s land and I stayed in no man’s land for the race, but it was enough to keep me where I was. It was a true ’cross race. It got a little icy there toward the end. It wasn’t too sketchy, just a lot of horse power to put down. I didn’t really think I was too on today, but I wasn’t too far off either.”

“Russell was obviously on, and he’s hard to beat. He rolled off the front and that was it. I’m always satisfied with my result, unless I have a day where my body doesn’t really work. It’s one of those things where if I’m out here racing I’m here to have fun. I’m not making my living doing this. It was really fun.“
