State MN CX/ UCI Racing

Hard to think about bike racing when winter is full on here at Maplelag but a few results to note as of late.

Steve and Matt Wenzel along with Matt Engen, competed in the MN State CX Championships a few weekends ago. Conditions were truly epic with 8 inches of snow falling the day and during the races. Read Steve's report.

Eric Thompson continues to wave the flag in southeast united states, competing in UCI races and scoring important UCI points. John Thompson reports:
Eric had a great race today finishing 5th despite crashing over the handlebars after Marco LaLonde went down in front of him (someone crashed in front of Marco starting the chain reaction). Eric is OK. What's impressive is that Eric fell back to about 15th place after the crash but chased hard through the field and rejoined the leaders (Matter, Frattini, etc.) for the final sprint. With the 5th place finish he earned valuable UCI points for call up at U23 Nats in a few weeks.
