On Saturday, UCI cyclocross racing began in the United States at Ellison Park in Rochester, NY. Riders were limited by heat and the effort of climbing during the race. In the Women’s Elite Race, some of the biggest names fell off the front early on, while others appeared to have overcooked their engines early on.
At the front of the race, however, Kaitlin Antonneau, Amanda Miller, Meredith Miller, Crystal Anthony and Caroline Mani provided a tense fight that lasted for much of the race. Stay tuned for interviews from Antonneau and Meredith Miller as they recap the full weekend of racing.
