Nash Wins Again while Wellens Crushes at Day Two of the Exergy USGP of Cyclocross p/b Greenware
(September 25, 2011) Sun Prairie, WI. After a dry, fast conditions kicked off the first day of racing at the Exergy US Grand Prix of Cyclocross presented by Greenware, day two of the Planet Bike Cup brought a decidedly different day of racing, as heavy rains fell over Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, creating muddy conditions that would become a major factor in the elite races late in the day.
After a full day of amateur racing in heavy rain, the women were the first elite group to take to the course, just as clouds began to clear and the sun came out. French champion Caroline Mani took the Avid Shorty Ultimate Holeshot off of the line, but the Luna Chix duo of day one winner Katerina Nash and teammate Georgia Gould quickly moved to the front to control the race.
