Pan Am MTB - Plaxton and Bishop win silver and bronze

A former Pan Am Games champion Bishop said, "It was an aggressive race. I went full gas right from the start to put pressure on the others. Team USA and Cannondale Factory Racing support was excellent and allowed me to put together a hard fought bronze medal ride."

Bishop placed 4th in London's Olympic Mountain Bike test event earlier this summer and won gold at the Pan American Games in 2003.

"Since my gold medal ride in 2003, I have a new found respect for the magic of Juegos Pan Americanos, it's awesome to be back on the podium!" Bishop said.

Thousands of local residents gathered all along the course to cheer on the riders. The downtown core was buzzing with musical groups in true Mexican style, clowns, manufacturers displaying their products and local arts shops showcasing Mexican culture.

Spooky Cross UCI C2 - Butler 2nd!

Trebon and Mani Distance their Competition at Spooky Cross UCI C2

Spooky Cross

The 2011 Cross After Dark series has been dominated by riders either based in Europe or traveling this weekend to the first World Cup in the Czech Republic.

Mani grabbed the hole shot. The reigning French National Champion jumped out to a 7 second lead and never relinquished it to WN Sue Butler. That small gap stayed consistent until late in the race when it expanded to nearly 20 seconds over WN's Sue Butler (River City Bicycles/Ridley).

After the race Mani admitted her winning strategy consisted of telling Butler she was going to murder her “At the start I said, I’m going to kill you,” explained Mani with a sweet, slightly devilish grin. If you know Sue, there is always a inside joke going on. The inside joke, going back to last weekend’s New Belgium Cup in Fort Collins, CO.

Congrats to Sue Butler for the great results!

Behind Mani, the tough battle between Butler and Stetson-Lee kept things interesting. Stetson-Lee fought her way up to third and got within a handful of seconds but Sue Butler.
