2009 Cross Nationals Rocked

It was a stunning day both in terms of weather and competition for the 2009 Cross Nationals in Bend, Oregon. With the backdrop of crisp blue skies, competitors took to the field to battle it out for the bragging rights that come along with a national title.

With each day of this nearly week-long race the weather has changed–flurries gave way to snowfall, which gave way to today’s ice-and-must festival. Collegiate men and women provided the most spirited competition and the pro divisions showed just how blazingly-fast one can ride a bike across a mud-strewn course.

The highlight of the course was easily the two-story-tall staircase that claimed just a few victims at its base. Easily one of the best courses in U.S. ‘cross racing the Bend, Oregon event was packed with spectators and massive amounts of cowebells.

Final standings are here.
