The Planet Bike Sprinter van headed south last Wednesday for Kansas City for the 2007 National Championships of Cyclocross. If you’ve been following the weather, you’ve probably heard that area of the country has been getting slammed by snow and ice for weeks. The race course took a pounding all week, and by this past weekend, it was pretty brutal. Luckily for our riders, the Wisco series kept their bad weather riding skills up.
First off, congrats to our very own Diane Ostenso who is the new Masters 55-59 Female National Champion! Planet Bike owner Bob Downs finished 5th, behind winner Iron Ned Overend, in the Men’s Masters 50+ for his best finish ever at Nats. Patti Kaufman finished 4th in the women’s Masters 50-54 and Tristan Schouten hung tough to finish 8th overall in the pro/elite field for his best finish as well! Great job everyone! You done us proud. You can check some photos here.
