The singlespeed women were the second-to-last race of the day, and committed to one gear on the muddy, heavy course.

Sunny Gilbert (Blue Competition Cycles p-b Build), defended her singlespeed title. This year, she didn’t have to worry about a falling golden bikini chasing her down.

Gilbert, fresh off a second place at the Singlespeed Cyclocross World Champs, had two minutes in hand at the finish.

The champ said after her race:

I missed a pedal at the start, no surprise there [because] my feet are frozen. Almost immediately, as soon as we hit the wood chips, I was like, ‘alright, I’ve got this,’ and just found every clean line. I had a couple of bobbles, I mean, who didn’t, but I was able to pull some stuff and got a gap almost immediately and went with it.
