Racing Begins in Reno for 2018 #CXNats

January 9, 2018 (Reno, Nev.) -- The glitz of downtown Reno took on a look of grass and gears for the first of six days of competitions at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park for the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships. Five non-championship events opened the week of competitions, giving athletes a chance to test the course.

Rain showers greeted competitors throughout the day on a tough and challenging course set just north of downtown Reno. The men’s 23-39 non-championship event started at noon and was won for the second year in a row by Jack Kisseberth (Easthampton, Mass./JAM Fund-NCC), finishing the race in 23:18.

The women’s 23-39 and 40+ non-championship events were won by Wilhelmina Zuckerman (Trabuco Canyon, Calif./unattached) in 31:34 and Katerina Nash (Emeryville, Calif./Clif Pro Team) 25:32, respectively.
