LA Cyclocross

Butler, Duke make up the podium

Being competitive among the world's fastest women is not a walk in the park.

Sue Butler (River City Bicycles/WN) grabs holeshot for the second day. The Second lap Nicole Duke (Cannondale/ and the previous day's winner Meredith Miller (Cal Giant/Specialized) gained some ground on the others.

Then with two to go Miller attacked and Butler went with her. The two were together then with one to go Miller gained ground on Butler. Butler gave Miller a good fight and stayed ahead of Duke for second and Krazniak rolled in a few seconds behind Duke for fourth.

The women chasing behind were working hard all day. In the end it was Devon Gorry (Team Rambuski Law) who rode off the group to roll in for fifth and the final podium position.
