Clif Bar Sweeps Highland Park 'Cross (UCI)

The Clif Bar Team came into town to contest the Highland Park Cyclo-Cross race, part of the Vergegear.com Mid-Atlantic
Championship Cyclo-Cross Series, and left town with three wins under their belt.  Clif Bar literally dominated the day,
taking wins in both the Men's and Women's Elite races as well as the Masters 35+ race.

In the Elite Women's race, Clif Bar teammates Carmen D'Aluisio and Gina Hall established the early pace with Hall on
the front.  D'Aluisio eventually overtook her teammate and rode the remainder of the race solo, increasing the size of
her lead lap after lap.  D'Aluisio cruised in for the win and Hall crossed a minute behind her for second. Anna
Milkowski (Gearworks/SpinArts) who had two strong races in the Mid-Atlantic series last weekend put in another good
ride to overtake Sarah Uhl (Saturn), who had established herself in third place.   Once past Uhl, Milkowski powered
away to pick-up a great third place finish.  Uhl held her position in the field and finished up in fourth.  Marianne
Stover ( Gearworks/Spin Arts) rounded out the top five.

In the Elite Men's race, Ryan Trebon (Kona) got the jump off the line and held down the front for one complete lap.
The combination of his pace and the tough windy conditions rapidly took its toll on the field.  As selections were made,
the lead group that formed consisted of five riders.  Besides Trebon, the group included Marc Gullickson (Redline),
Todd Wells (Mongoose/Hyundai), Jackson Stewart (Clif Bar) and Andy Jacques-Mayne (Clif Bar).  As the group of five
continued to put time on the remainder of the field, it started to appear that Trebon had paid a price for his early
rapid pace.  He appeared to be in difficulty several times as he allowed a gap to form between him and the rest of
the group.  With three laps to go, Trebon fell off the pace one more time and this time, was unable to close the gap.
As the leaders came around towards the start line again, Trebon was still dangling approximately five seconds behind.
With no one wanting to pull into the wind so close to the finish, the four leaders slowed and subtly jockeyed for
position as soon as they hit the pavement. Trebon saw the change in pace and his opportunity to rejoin the group. As
Trebon accelerated, so did the other four and as the riders got the bell, Trebon was still alone.  Heading into the
back part of the course, he was off but as the riders came back into view on the last part of the lap, not only had
Trebon rejoined the group, he was powering along at the front. Heading towards the final assault of the hilly section
of the course, Gully attacked but it was quickly matched by the others.  Gully held position and as they hit the
barriers for the last time, Gully led up the hill.  Gully led up the hill but it was Trebon leading as they came
down the hill.  With all five still together heading into the section past the pit, it looked like it was coming
down to a five-up sprint.  Jacques-Mayne had a different idea about the finish and as the group hesitated coming
around one of the final turns, Jacques-Mayne attacked.  His attack was enough to open up a small gap and he still
had that gap when he hit the pavement with the finish line in sight.  Trebon tried to match his attack but was a
pedal stroke or two too late and was unable to overtake Jacques-Mayne before the line.  Jacques-Mayne rolled across
the line to claim a well-fought UCI win.  Trebon claimed second.  With the remaining three riders hitting the pavement
together, it was a three-way sprint for third.  Jackson Stewart won the sprint, claiming third place with Gullickson
coming in for fourth and Wells for fifth. Jeremy Powers (NCC/Bikereg.com) came in tenth to finish as the top-placed Espoir.

Rich Maile (Clif Bar) won the Master's 35+ race winning a three-way sprint over John Verhuel (Ideal Tile) and Rob Hacker (Lite Bites).

Next week the series moves to Western Pennsylvania for Raccoon Township 'Cross. Racing starts at 10am.
