The women of Cutthroat racing swept the podium in the sixth edition of the Utah Cyclocross series on Saturday, October 29th.
Ali Knutson, Amy Andrews, and Anna Day pushed through a lengthy and technical course to come out on top of the fabled diamond plate platforms. The course included some grueling terrain with lots of deep sand, power-sucking grass, and some tight corners. And of course, all three racers competed on bikes with but a single gear (racing in costume, no less).
This year’s cyclocross season has seen growth in many areas. Just a year ago, there were but two women competing on single speed bikes. To see three riders from a single team is a sight of which CTR Team Members and the organizers of the Utah Cyclocross series should be extremely proud. In short, the sport continues to gain traction among a diverse group of riders.
Celebratory beers were had after the race, courtesy of primary CTR sponsor Uinta Brewing Co. As always, the members of CTR give a hearty thanks to the many sponsors who help make the team’s racing efforts a success.
