Cyclocross roughs up Steamboat

Racers participated Saturday in the first Steamboat Velo Cross cyclocross event

The bikes and jerseys are the same, as are the fans lining the course, but the first and last lap of a cyclocross event don’t always look like the same race. They sure didn’t Saturday afternoon. The top men’s competitors tore out from the starting gate raring to go and excited. An hour later, the same cyclists lost most of their enthusiasm.
