The team was busy in bothTexas and North Carolina this past weekend. took her second victory in as many weeks as well as a close 2nd place at Resolution ‘Cross Cup, which moved her into 2nd overall in the US ProCX standings. Saturday and Sunday both proved to be tight battles between Crystal and Courtenay McFadden, with the win going to Courtenay on Day 1 in a sprint finish. On Day 2, Crystal and Courtenay each took turns controlling the race, with Crystal attacking every power section and Courtenay making up time in the twisty turns. Crystal’s last lap attack up the climb to the sand pit finally stuck and she held on for the win in her final race before Nationals.
Saturday was the final US C1 race of the season, and rode to her first C1 victory. After a fast downhill pavement start, she and Courtenay McFadden got a gap on the field through a tough sand section. They rode together for the first lap, before Crystal attacked and got a small gap. The gap would remain at a few seconds for most of the race, with Courtenay gaining a bit through the twisty woods and Crystal pulling away in the power sections. A small mistake through the sand allowed Courtenay to make contact, but Crystal quickly pulled away got good by attacking on a power section through the start/finish.
