A Mid Summer Cross Race – Results and Recap

Written By on August 16, 2016

If you build it, they will come. Norm’s dream of bringing Cross back to Diver Lake in the dead of summer proved this to be true. A huge turnout (SELL OUT) and one of the best courses designed on the island had people raving for next years race, with suggestions of overnighter doubleheaders, other additional locales, and much more. One of the remarks overheard most often was that the course maximized the venue size better than anyone imagined, with the Le Mans style start spreading the group out early.

By the stats:
Females 20
Female Finishers 20
Males 75
Male Finishers 73
Total Racers 95
Finishers 93 (98%)
Top 3 Teams: MIVA (17) / Dodge City Racing (7) / Tripleshot Cycling Club (6)

Results: Apologies for the delay. Any discrepancies please email palleus@hotmail.com. Results preliminary at this point.
