Mt. Snow, Vermont in the Heat!

Some of the best racing you will every see!

After a long week in the heat, elite women short track heated up more with cyclo-cross hot rod Katie Compton setting a hot pace to a considerable lead. Mary McConneloug took 2nd and Lea Davison in 3rd.

"Riding in the heat is really hard," said Compton. " Cross is easier for me because it's colder and I do better in colder temperatures. The same holds true for Georgia Gould and many others. Georgia was even disabled by heat this season at Santa Ynez, CA. These gals make some real power (heat) and give it their all in every race! They push it to the limits!

Many of the normal top racers seemed fatigued as a result of the long, hot cross country race on Saturday. Georgia Gould (Luna) and Heather Irmiger (Gary Fisher/Subaru) had made massive efforts during the cross country event appeared to be off their normal pace.

McConneloug realized that neither Davison or Gould were going to shut down the gap on lap third lap. Compton had a 200 foot gap by lap four, but McConneloug seemed to be closing it down. Davison, Sue Butler (Mona Vie), and Willow Koerber (Gary Fisher/Suburu) were all chasing hard behind.
