Cross Vegas is Fun

Rumor had over 14,000 spectators for the second annual Cross Vegas Cyclocross race last week in Las Vegas, Nevada. After walking and talking much of the day away during the trade show, the wheelers and dealers came out to the race to have some fun. With sweet live race action commentary by Dave Towle, plenty of food and beverage and a soothing sunset, backed by the bright sports complex lights, the race was sure to be a hit. Lance Armstrong was the main show as a field of cameras followed his every move. He was not the only big name however, Thomas Frischknecht, a super duper long time racer, and World Champion MTB’er was celebrating his retirement with Cross Vegas being the finale. Durango racers Matt Shriver 11th, Todd Wells 12th, Troy Wells 18th, Chad Cheeney 66th and Brendan Shafer 67th of 96 starters. Shannon Gibson was Durango’s lone lady and finished a strong 13th. Full results Cross season is now on, so get ready.
