Colorado Springs Pro STXC Short Track Report

June 12th, 2009

Pro Women at Colorado Springs Pro XCT Short Track

Heather Irminger Wins Colorado Springs Pro XCT Short TrackToday was the first of 2 days of top level mountain bike racing in Colorado Springs. The Pro XCT Short Track was held on a course with a lot of tight singletrack and lap times under 3 minutes. Racers said it was tough to move up except on the short climb on a wide gravel path on the backside.

In the Pro Women’s race, a group of 4 formed at the front with Heather Irminger, Katie Compton, Catherine Pendrel and Katerina Nash. With a couple laps to go, Irminger and Compton opened a small gap.

Todd Wells and Jeremy Horgan-KobelskiIn the end hometown girl Compton couldn’t get around Irminger coming out of the final corner and had to settle for 2nd. Catherine Pendrel rounded out the top 3.

In the Pro Men’s race, it didn’t take Todd Wells and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski long to open up a gap on the rest of the field. Wells pulled off the win with JHK coming in 2nd. Geoff Kabush finished out the podium.

The racing continues tomorrow at Cheyenne Mountain State Park with the cross-country race. I wrote some about the cross-country course a few days ago.

Starting tomorrow (Saturday) at 6PM, Peak Region Cyclist is hosting a party at McCabe’s Tavern downtown. Racers 1st drink is free with race number. There will be food and drink specials for everyone. Band starts at 9 PM.

I have posted more photos of the short track and cross country races.

Disappointing Day for Katie Compton

January 27th, 2008

As I posted on Friday, Katie Compton, a local cyclist, was racing the 2008 Cyclocross World’s today. She had been having muscle problems and had been seen limping.

According to a report on VeloNews, Katie started today and was going to see how she felt. She ended up pulling out after the 1st lap. It had to be a big disappointment after all the training she has put in. Unfortunately no one gets to choose when they have bad days.

Local Cyclist in 2008 World Cyclocross Championships

January 25th, 2008

Katie Compton at Local Cyclocross in September
Local cyclist Katie Compton is scheduled to compete in the 2008 World Cyclocross Championships this Sunday in Treviso, Italy. Until a couple weeks ago she was favored to win it.

Last year she won the silver medal as a relatively unknown rider. Althouugh she has been winning the National Championships since 2004, she wasn’t doing any UCI races. She had been piloting a tandem for a blind rider for the Paralympics. Racing UCI races would make her ineligible to compete in the Paralympics.

Last winter she made the decision to move on from the Paralympics and do Cyclocross Worlds. Since she didn’t have UCI points she had to start near the back and it took most of the race for her to work her way to the front. This year she became the 2nd US woman to win a World Cup cyclocross race and went of the win a 2nd one. The other woman to win a World Cup cyclocross race is another local cyclist, Alison Dunlap.

Unfortunately the last couple weeks haven’t gone well for Katie. I haven’t been able to find much information but there was a bit on Cycling News earlier this week. She didn’t race last weekend and said she having some musle problems. She’s struggled with leg cramps in longer races but hasn’t seemed to be a problem in the shorter cyclocross races.

Katie is still on the start list that was updated today. I’m hoping that she has a great day on Sunday and pulls off the win.

Our local paper did a good article on her last week if you want to read more about her.
