i won a cyclocross race

I won a cyclocross race!

photo credit: sosovelo.comMy first Cross Crusade elite win ever! Been trying for the last 4 years! This is the first season that I have not been sick or injured going into October and well, I hope it pays off with exciting battles for the rest of the Crusades!

Heck, even got a Velonews write up! I think the first thing out of Brad Ross’ mouth was: “dear god, a vegan won a cx crusade”.

There is no video of the finish but, I squealed kinda like this when I crossed the line:

Cyclocross build has a good re-cap + bunch of good race reports out there, 1300 riders?! WTF? That is soo many people. Yeah, I am pumped.

And, check out a video interview from Cross Vegas: (my segment is about 7 minutes in.)

What a day, and what a week. I cannot put into words how shitty my week was last week. Everything seems to fall apart at once eh?

This is brilliant.

A huge, huge thanks to Jacob Winfield. Having good race support is key. Shit, if I had to do the pit exchange all by my self in the 2nd lap, I may not have even been able to bridge back up to Erik and Sean!

Take a look at the video link below, if you were out of the top 15 in the first lap, we already put 30 seconds into you!

Another race report and more video footage from Emiliano Jordan on his site here.

I’ve got a dozen other stories from last Sunday but, I am neck deep in work and need to write abut it another time.

  1. Molly- casual fan struggling in the SS race, cheered you on as you passed (while trying to get out of the way) but was totally floored to see you helping a fellow racer put a chain back on. Major props. Riders like yourself are a constant source of inspiration to casual joes like me. Congrats on your win!

  4. molly, i was there, and your finish line “squeal”/roar was way more impressive than howard deans. he sounded like hed run out of lung capacity - i think you had time to recover a little while zipping the jersey all PRO-like :)

  5. Way to channel your inner mountain-biker on what was (I assume) about as un-euro a course as you could find! Here’s hoping the rest of your season is more of the same.
