Anthony nabs sixth place at USA Cyclo-cross National Championships

HARTFORD, Conn. – Crystal Anthony took home sixth place for Maxxis-Shimano at the USA Cyclo-cross National Championships in Hartford, Connecticut last Sunday. After bursting off the start line in third position, the New England native battled with Courtenay McFadden (American Classic/Zones) while enjoying a race in front of a home crowd.

“I was happy with a solid sixth place and had a ton of fun racing in the snow in front of so many friends and family,” Anthony said. “The New England cheering squad was amazing.”

Anthony said she was excited to discover that snow and freezing temperatures would dominate the weekend weather.

“I train in this kind of weather all the time and am most comfortable in tough conditions like this,” Anthony said. “It was the kind of course that you had to focus every single second. At any point you could hit an icy rut and take a tumble.”

Katie Compton (KFC Racing) won the pro women’s race, her 13th championship victory at USA Cyclo-cross nationals.

Anthony’s Maxxis- Shimano teammates, Danny Summerhill and Travis Livermon, did not fare as well on the testing course. Despite slotting into third after a good start, Summerhill suffered a crash that took him out of the race that was eventually won by Stephen Hyde (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld). Livermon also had a run of unfortunate mishaps forcing him to abandon.

“The course was a blast to ride but very tricky to get through at full speed,” Livermon said. “There were a lot of out of control moments. Bad luck and weather conditions didn’t play in our favor and I was eventually overwhelmed by the bad luck and pulled the plug on the race.”

Livermon wins North Carolina Grand Prix

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – Travis Livermon sealed a stellar victory for the Maxxis-Shimano team this past Sunday at the North Carolina Grand Prix. Targeting this event as a top priority this season, the North Carolina native was over the moon to finally secure a win at Jackson Park.

“I’ve been so close to winning this race so many times,” Livermon said. “It feels incredible to get the win at home with all my friends and family watching.”

Sunday’s course was a challenging one. The ground had thawed from the day before, making it slick in spots on the course. Livermon and Kerry Werner (Kona Endurance Team) pushed the pace early and within a couple of laps they had made a separation from their competitors. The duo traded laps, keeping the pace high until two and a half laps to go when Livermon faltered in a corner, giving Werner a five second advantage.

“I was able to close the gap a few corners from the finish,” Livermon said. “On a tricky off camber section I made the pass coming into the final corner.  I sprinted with everything I had and ended up crossing the line with a healthy gap.”

The day before his win, Livermon said Saturday’s C2 race shook out as expected with a lead group forming quickly.

“It wasn’t a particularly hard pace and clearly was going to shake out in the last lap. I took the lead coming into the final hill but made a silly mistake and slid out, losing position and the opportunity to attack,” Livermon said. “I made it back to second place, but as I tried to set up for the pass with two corners to go, I slipped up again. I ended up a frustrating third, but my good friend Tristan Cowie (Triple Oaks Cycling) took the win so it was great to see him do well.”

In the women’s race, Crystal Anthony also delivered, claiming second place on Saturday after a long battle with Rebecca Fahringer (Amy D. Foundation). The next day, Anthony finished in fourth place after an ill-timed gaffe took her out of pole position.

Team Maxxis-Shimano excel at Ruts n’ Guts UCI event

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. – Danny Summerhill and Travis Livermon narrowly missed the top step of the podium this past weekend at Ruts N’ Guts with Summerhill claiming second place on Saturday and Livermon grabbing the same result the next day

Summerhill, fresh off a three-week break, said he was completely surprised by his result.

“Prior to the race, I had didn’t think I could crack the top ten, but somehow after the first lap I found myself off the front by about 20 seconds. That lasted for all but the last two laps,” Summerhill said. “It came down to tactics, luck and some guts, but unfortunately heading in the last corner, luck was not totally on my side.”

“I’m still in shock and pleased with second although after putting in the work for the whole race, a win would’ve felt much better,” he added.

Tobin Ortenblad (Santa Cruz Factory Racing) took the win while Maxxis-Shimano’s Livermon picked up a solid fifth place.

Despite being new to Ruts N’ Guts, Crystal Anthony held her own in the UCI women’s event. Anthony claimed fifth place on Saturday after a crash set her back a few crucial positions.

“The course was fun to race, with several choose-your-own-adventure creek crossings and twisty technical sections,” she said. “There was a pretty cool up and downhill sand pit and a few power grass sections.”

Katie Compton went off the front from the start on Saturday, with Anthony making the lead chase group. A strong acceleration on the final lap saw her finish in fifth.

Sunday’s C2 race belonged to Livermon, who crushed the competition to finish a close second behind Ortenblad.

“I felt like I had better legs than everyone in the front group, but just couldn’t get separation,” Livermon said. “I led the last few laps and could tell I had everyone on the ropes but Tobin was able to come around me with a couple turns to go and that was it. I’m happy with the result, but frustrated to miss out on the win by so little.”

In the women’s event, Compton rode away again while Anthony had a back and forth battle with Becca Fahringer, Katie Antonneau and Sunny Gilbert before a few unfortunate crashes had her chasing hard and left her in sixth place.

“The bikes worked great and the support was awesome as always,” Anthony said. “I’m looking forward to getting back on my game next weekend in Asheville.”

Next weekend, the racing heads back east for North Carolina Grand Prix in Hendersonville, N.C. Having lost last year to his Summerville, Livermon hopes that he’ll see the top step of the podium in 2016.

“Being from NC and having many friends in the Asheville area makes this feel like a hometown race,” Livermon says. “I’ve been second the past four times I’ve raced it really eats at me that I’ve never won. I’m working hard to try and make sure this is finally the year.”

With Summerhill and Anthony both hoping to repeat their 2015 wins in Hendersonville, this event could turn into a fantastic success for the Maxxis-Shimano squad and a great way to lead into the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships in Hartford Connecticut once the calendar clicks over into 2017 a few weeks later.

Livermon & Anthony claim top-tens at Derby City Cup

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Crystal Anthony and Travis Livermon enjoyed another consistent weekend of racing for the Maxxis Shimano team with Anthony claiming a sixth place and Livermon finishing ninth at the Derby City Cup presented by Papa John’s.

Louisville played host to the C1 and C2 race, which offered up warm, dry conditions for the Maxxis-Shimano team. For the first time this season, Anthony and Livermon traveled to Kentucky without their third team member, Danny Summerhill, who decided to take the weekend off.

The course at Eva Bandman Park changed from the past, with the technical wood area came earlier on in the lap and the Green Monster flyover came at the end. Despite this, Anthony said the course rode similarly with a good balance of power sections, tight turns and tricky off cambers.

“I made some move in the technical sections in the beginning of the race to move into a top five position going into the first long sand pit, but got caught behind several crashes, which caused me to lose my position,” Anthony said. “Unfortunately, I didn’t have the legs to get back and ended up in 9th place.”

Katerina Nash (Clif Pro Team) took the win.

In the men’s C1 event, Livermon made the lead group of 12 riders in the early stages of the race. He also ended up in ninth place after getting caught behind a rider who punctured in the technical section. Stephen Hyde (Cylance-Cannondale Pro) won the race in 1 hour 55 seconds.

That evening, the Maxxis-Shimano team had the opportunity to dine with Maxxis engineers at “Game,” a Louisville favorite.

“We got to discuss their latest technology, direction and provide some feedback on tires,” Anthony said. “It was an awesome experience to meet directly with the people who create our tires.”

Sunday’s C2 race was held on the same course as the previous day, with one minor line change.

“It was dustier today because the riders tore up some of the dirt sections,” Anthony said. “We had good success running the Maxxis Raze tires in the dry and grassy conditions. They were fast rolling but with enough tread to grip in the corners.”

Learning from her sand pit mistake the day before, Anthony rode most of the race sitting in 6th place, where she eventually finished after a hard fought battle with Caroline Mani. Again, Nash claimed the win.

Livermon suffered misfortune at the beginning of his race, which eventually caused him to call it a day and rest his legs for the next race on the cards.

Racing shifts further west at the beginning of December for the Ruts ‘n Guts event in Broken Arrow, OK and then heads back east for North Carolina Grand Prix in Hendersonville, NC. Having lost last year to his future teammate Summerhill, Travis Livermon hopes that he’ll see the top step of the podium in 2016.

“Being from NC and having many friends in the Asheville area makes this feel like a hometown race,” Livermon said. “I’ve been second the past four times I’ve raced it really eats at me that I’ve never won. I’m working hard to try and make sure this is finally the year.”

Summerhill, Anthony Podium at Gran Prix of Gloucester

GLOUCESTER, Ma. –Danny Summerhill and Crystal Anthony brought home an impressive 2nd and 3rd place in their respective races for the Maxxis-Shimano team at CRAFT SPORTSWEAR Gran Prix of Gloucester UCI C2 this past weekend.

“Having the home crowd advantage, along with my family here to watch made it all the more motivating for me to do well here,” said Anthony, a Massachusetts native. “The course was practically in my backyard.”

During the pro men’s event on Saturday, the race settled in after first lap with eventual winner Curtis White riding clear. Summerhill was part of a small chase that he outsprinted up the finishing ascent to take an impressive second place. His teammate, Travis Livermon racked up another solid result, finishing in 9th place.

“The course proved to be difficult and challenging in many ways,” Summerhill said. “Yesterday all of us were really nervous because of the bad luck we had last year. This year, our tires held up phenomenally. We had no flats thanks to the new Maxxis Raze tubular tires we rode.”

In the women’s race, Anthony missed her pedal at the start and had to fight hard the entire race to make up for her lost position.  After a long battle with Christelle Ferrier (SAS-MACOGEP-Acquisio) and Ruby West (Cannondale Cyclocrossworld), Anthony rallied hard to take fifth place by attacking with one and a half laps to go.

Anthony made up for Saturday’s blunder by getting a good start the next day, shooting into the front group that contained eventual winner Helen Wyman, Emma White and other race favorites. Wyman broke away with White, leaving Anthony in a chase group with Ferrier, Maghalie Rochette (Luna) and Natasha Elliot (Garneau – Easton Cycling).

After West faded, Anthony shook off Ferrier over the top of the long run up in the last lap and hung on to snag third place.

“I’m so happy to win my first podium of the season for Maxxis-Shimano in front of a home crowd,” Anthony said.

The men’s race started with a large group of around 10 riders that included Summerhill and Livermon. It gradually whittled down over the course of the race with Summerhill managing to break clear, resulting with Summerhill earning his second podium of the weekend with a third place. Livermon crossed the line in 10th place.

“Today was more of a team dynamic with Travis and I riding really well together,” Summerhill said. “We went back and forth for a while until Curtis White put in a big attack which separated the race.”

But it wasn’t just great results that Maxxis-Shimano enjoyed during their time in Gloucester. Anthony, whose brother is professional road rider Jesse Anthony, had the rare opportunity to have her family present to support the team over the weekend.

“We hung out with the Anthony’s, who are a huge clan,” Summerhill said. “I like Jesse (Anthony) a lot, but the fact that we race on different road teams means I don’t get the chance to hang out with him very much. I really enjoyed spending time with him off the bike.”

The team also had the chance to have dinner with the owner of Parlee Bikes, Bob Parlee.

“We had a fantastic time having dinner with Bob Parlee and some of the company employees,” Summerhill said. “They’re a big sponsor of Gloucester GP, as is another one of our team sponsors, Shimano. It was great to get three podiums in front of our sponsors this weekend.”

Looking forward, Maxxis-Shimano has a much-needed week off before the team set off to Mason, Ohio to tackle Cincinnati Kings Cross.

“We’re all looking forward to a week off and pressing the reset button,” said a motivated Summerhill. “We plan on hitting Cincy with full gas, especially coming off of an intense chunk of racing over the past few weeks. We’re all looking forward to seeing how we come out of it and what is to come from here.”

Summerhill, Anthony take fourth at Charm City Cross

 

BALTIMORE, Md. – Team Maxxis-Shimano had another exciting weekend of racing in Baltimore, Maryland this past weekend, with Danny Summerhill and Crystal Anthony both claiming fourth place in their respective races.

On day 1, Summerhill took home sixth place in the C2 race. Stephen Hyde (Cannondale P/B Cyclocrossworld) was the winner on both day 1 and 2.

“It was an interesting weekend to say the least,” Summerhill said. “Two polar opposite days of racing, with slick and sloppy rain and mud conditions on Saturday.On Sunday there were gale force winds, warm temperatures and a dry course. I’m disappointed that I didn’t get on the podium, but wasn’t from lack of trying. I left it all out there and happy with how well our equipment performed.”

Livermon was aggressive early and got a small gap on the field. However, he called it quits after a trip to the pits that took longer than usual leaving him out of contention.

“It was super windy and a group of about ten riders stayed together for most of the race,” he said. “The last lap was a hard drag with not a lot of tactical riding.”

Anthony described Saturday’s course as having a great flow, allowing the riders to keep a good momentum and rhythm. During the race, Anthony had a good start and ended up in a battle for fourth with her friend, Caroline Mani.

“One of the great things I love about cross is that we can have intense battles on the course with each other but be great friends off the course,” Anthony said. “She put in a big effort with two laps to go that I couldn’t match and finished fifth.”

The next day there was confusion at the start after a spectator blew a whistle right before the officials did. Anthony was caught behind a huge amount of traffic and couldn’t get back into contention. She finished in 26th place while Katie Compton (KFC Racing) took the win.

The next race on tap is CRAFT SPORTSWEAR Grand Prix of Gloucester onOctober 15-16.

“(Gloucester) is another iconic race in the U.S.,” says Livermon. “It may seem crazy but I’m hoping for rain this year. It’s been dry and dusty every time I’ve raced it and those conditions are very hard to deal with. But either way, I’m looking forward to spending time at the awesome venue.”

Summerhill claims podium spot at KMC Cross Fest

THOMPSON, Conn. – The Maxxis-Shimano Cyclocross Team claimed top 10 finishes across the board over two days of racing at the KMC Cross Festival in Thompson, Connecticut last weekend (Oct 2-3). Best placed was Danny Summerhill, who took third after Sunday’s C2 race.

During Saturday’s C1 pro women’s race, Anthony blew out of the gates in the top 10 and passed several riders by the time she arrived at the technical sections. She then battled with Caroline Mani (Raleigh Clement), who she gapped on the third lap in the same technical section and held her off to the line to claim sixth place. Katie Compton (KFC Racing) claimed first place.

“The mud that was more slick than sticky, and the course had some long pavement sections with barriers and tight turns, then some off camber and steep pitch sections that required good bike handling skills,” Anthony said. “It suited me.”

In the men’s race, Summerhill shot off the line and nabbed the hole shot. He led the field through the first off-road section and into the pavement, but unfortunately suffered a crash that left him in 12th place. His teammate, Livermon, worked his way up from the top 10 and battled for a well-earned fifth place. Stephen Hyde was the eventual winner.

On the second day the course was a bit drier, but some muddy spots remained. The technical sections were reversed so the Maxxis-Shimano team had a testing sand run up and tricky off-camber descents to negotiate. The road sections were even faster on Sunday for the C2 race, which led to some tactical group racing.

Like the day before, Anthony had a good start, earning the hole shot for part of the first lap.

“I may have given a little too much pulling for much of the road section, so I lost contact with the lead group after some attacks went,” Anthony said.

Katie Compton overcame a missed pedal at the start and eventually pulled away from the rest of the field to win the race. Mani followed, then Rebecca Fahringer (Amy D Foundation) and Emma White (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld). Anthony ended up in a battle with Courtenay McFadden and Amanda Miller. Anthony and Miller gapped McFadden after the second sand run-up and went back and forth until the final lap, when a minor falter caused Anthony to lose contact with Miller and finish in sixth place.

In the men’s event, Summerhill and Livermon were in a large group of 20 riders during the early stages of the race. Eventually, the group whittled down as some of the riders ran out of matches after losing contact on the technical sections. Summerhill managed to remain solid in the lead group of four and took home third place. Livermon wasn’t far behind, finishing in eighth place. Curtis White (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld) took top honors at the end of the day.

“I’m happy to get a podium out of it and excited to see how the race evolves for next year. I believe it has the potential to be one of the greatest race courses in all of US cross racing,” Summerhill said after the race. “My Maxxis tires came through in a big way, providing ample grip in sloppy and slick conditions.”

Charm City Cross in Baltimore (October 8-9) will play host to the next race on the Maxxis-Shimano team schedule.

Summerhill podiums at Jingle Cross

IOWA CITY, Iowa – After a quick transition from the glitz of Las Vegas to the heart of the Corn Belt in Iowa, Team Maxxis – Shimano geared up once again for Volkswagen Jingle Cross, featuring the second World Cup of the 2016-17 season, Telenet UCI Cyclo-Cross World Cup held on Saturday the 24th at the Johnson City Fairgrounds.

The day prior to the World Cup, Danny Summerhill and Travis Livermon competed in the Jingle Cross C2 race while Crystal Anthony opted to sit out to rest for the World Cup the next day.

The team had a good night despite sticky, muddy course conditions. Summerhill finished in third place in a tight battle for the podium in a race won by Marcel Meisen (Steylaerts-Verona). Livermon was close behind, taking fifth place. He rode most of the race solo in sixth, but on the last lap four riders joined him, which made the charge for the line tough.

“The mud was super heavy, making us have to do pit stops twice a lap,” Livermon said. “The conditions also made for a fair bit of running.”

On the day of the World Cup, Anthony racked up another good result for her palmares, finishing 20th amongst the biggest names in the sport, but always looking to improve, Anthony said she wanted more after it was all done and dusted. Decorated cross rider Katie Compton took the overall win after four laps of racing under swelteringly hot conditions.


Livermon had another good World Cup showing claiming 36th place, but, like Anthony, said he was hoping for better legs after Cross Vegas. Suffering from a tired body, Summerhill finished in 44th place. Current world champion Wout van Aert notched another win at Jingle Cross, continuing his streak of being undefeated in the US for two years.

“It’s been a tough trip. Even though everything has gone smooth, and the bikes and equipment have been awesome, it’s a hard week of racing and travel,” Livermon said. “Maybe Danny and I could have had a better World Cup if we sat out Fridaynight, but I still think it was a good call to race. We are here to race and there was one, so we went for it.”

Next weekend, October starts off with KMC CrossFest in Thompson, Connecticut. This year, the race is on a larger stage than seen in previous years. Taking cues from both Belgium’s Circuit Zolder and the beloved Sea Otter race held on the Laguna Seca raceway, KMC is expanding significantly with a move to the Thompson Motor Speedway for 2016.

Team takes on Cross Vegas

Livermon claims his best World Cup result to date

LAS VEGAS – The Maxxis-Shimano team held its own during Cross Vegas, the first World Cup race of the 2016 season, on September 23rd. Travis Livermon had a career best World Cup finish, finishing 26th out of a highly competitive and international field. He was the second American to finish after Jeremy Powers. Danny Summerhill finished mid-field in 33rd place and Crystal Anthony ended up in 27th place.

In both the women’s and men’s World Cup races, the start saw a big pack of riders clumped together for a good amount of time before the toll of the velcro-like grass splintered the race into smaller groups. This year the course had several changes but still the standout features were the soul-sucking grass, multiple dismounts per lap, and steep punchy hills.

Summerhill and Livermon came directly from Trek CXC the weekend prior, while Anthony flew home to work her teaching job Monday and Tuesday before flying to Vegas on Tuesday night.

“Because of the tight turnaround to the Jingle Cross World Cup in Iowa, the team had minimal set up for Vegas and had to be a bit more intentional about planning,” Anthony said.

The day before the race, Summerhill and Anthony went to the morning pre-ride at 9 a.m. to check out the course and get their legs opened up. Some of the things they looked at were riding vs. running the four sets of stairs, lines around the fast grass corners and the new uphill sand pit. Livermon opted to stay back at the hotel to rest.

The rest of the day was spent relaxing and making sure things were in order for the race. The Maxxis-Shimano mechanics made sure all the bikes were in order, and Anthony’s boyfriend ran errands to get ice socks in case of heat, pre and post race food and did some pre-race massage.

“One key thing for travel weekends is to find a way to preserve your healthy routine on the road,” Anthony said. “I brought my Ninja blender to be able to make smoothies, and located the local Whole Foods, which is kind of like my version of the Hard Rock Cafe that everyone likes to visit in whatever city they are in.”

At the race, the team used the Feedback Sports tent with neutral trainers to warm up, and got a couple laps in on the course. The local news channel came over to interview Anthony while she was warming up on the trainer. The reporter asked what the sport of cyclocross was about, why you need to warm up, and what the hardest part of training for the sport was.

“The atmosphere at Vegas is electric and one of the most well-attended CX race by spectators,” Anthony said. “One of the appealing things about having World Cups in the US are the fans, who will cheer for everyone and contribute so much energy to the event.”

Summerhill takes third at Rochester Cyclocross

ROCHESTER, New York. – Decorated cyclocross rider Danny Summerhill nabbed third place on the second day of the Rochester Cyclocross UCI weekend at Gennesse Valley Park, successfully turning a disappointing finish on the previous day into a podium placing for the Maxxis-Shimano team.

At the conclusion of Saturday’s muggy C1 race, Travis Livermon finished in 13thplace, 2:02 minutes behind Jeremy Powers, who took victory both days. In the pro women’s field, Crystal Anthony had a strong race, claiming eighth, 1:50 down on winner Kaitlin Antonneau (Cannondale pb CyclocrossWorld.com).

“I definitely aim to improve as the season goes on,” Anthony said. “I had some good battles with other riders and was able to pick several off in the closing laps, which was a positive.”

Sunday’s C2 race was more of a typical day for the Maxxis-Shimano team. Pre-season nerves were mostly gone, and the temperature cooled giving the racers a welcome reprieve after Saturday’s humidity. This time, luck was on the side of all three riders.

“Day by day we’re figuring it out more and more,” Summerhill said. “Saturday’s race was a little weird with it being 90 degrees and the first race weekend. Of course we all had to work out the first-race race jitters. I’d say we’re taking it one race at a time. We learned a lot last year, so we’re rolling that knowledge over to this season.”

During the race, Summerhill led most of the way, keeping an eye on his nearest rivals Powers and Stephen Hyde, who would end up first and second, respectively.

Battling a stacked women’s field, Anthony had another solid ride to claim her second eighth place of the weekend. The Massachusetts native finished 1:08 behind race winner Caroline Mani (Raleigh Clement).

“On the team side of things it was great, smooth travel, new Parlee bikes were great, everything with the team was great,” said Livermon, who ended up in 15th, 1:05 off of the winner’s time. “I just didn’t have good legs. It takes me a couple races to settle in so I know I’ll continue to get better every week.”

Despite not having the legs he hoped for, Livermon was impressed with his new equipment. After racing on Maxxis tires for the first time, he enjoyed the cornering traction and how well they handled both the fast hard pack and technical seconds of the Rochester course.

“I am stoked we’re a part of the cross tire development with Maxxis,” Livermon said. They are definitely right on track and engineering exactly what we need out here.”

Summerhill added the Parlee Chebacco frames the team is riding this year are responsive and quick.

“The Parlees ride like a dream,” he said. “It’s awesome having a bike that does what you want it to do.”

Transitioning and bonding

For Summerhill, who also races road for UnitedHealthcare, preparing for cyclocross is different from the majority of his competitors. A few days ago, the Colorado native wrapped up the road season with the Tour of Alberta and said he’s using his “diesel” power gained from that race for cross.

“It seems like the cross schedule starts earlier and earlier every year, which for me makes the schedule and transitioning to a different discipline a bit easier,” said the Colorado native. “I’m not nearly as snappy coming out of the corners like some of the pure cross racers, but I have a lot of power from road racing. It’s a different style.”

But it’s not just about maintaining good form, the mental side of competing road then transitioning seamlessly into cross is important to monitor. This summer, Summerhill took a few short breaks from racing to recharge his batteries since an extended summer rest wasn’t an option.

“This is how our schedule looks during cross season,” Summerhill said. “We’re homeMonday, rest on Tuesday and ride on Wednesday. On Thursday, we’re traveling to our next race and by Friday, it’s time for intervals to open up our legs before heading into race weekend. We’re constantly on the go so it’s important to check in with yourself a lot.”

Despite the long race weekend and a hectic week ahead, the team made time to relax and bond over ice cream at Red Robin before heading home.

“It was a great trip,” Livermon said. “We all had fun together. It didn’t really feel like the first time working together. It’s great to be back working with (mechanic) Chris Kriedl. We spent a couple summers together road racing a few years back.”

Looking ahead, the team has its sights set on Waterloo, Wisconsin next weekend for the Trek CXC Cup where Anthony hopes to defend last year’s win.
