Over 412 riders from around the Mid Atlantic converged upon Druid Hill Park, nestled in the heart of Baltimore, Maryland for the official kick-off of the MABRA Cyclocross series. The event, part of thecountry�s fastest growing cyclocross series, has become the annual kick-off for the �cross season in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Hosted by Team, the unseasonably warm temperatures marked the opening of the 2007 cross Season. The course rolled around the beautiful grounds of Druid Hill Park, and forced riders off the bike four times per lap, twice with artificial barriers, once through a sandpit and once around a �natural barrier�. Featuring tight cornering, and open power sections, it was a challenging loop designed by Chris �Sven� Nystrom and Kris Auer that benefited riders possessing strong technical skills.

In the Elite Women�s race Carolyn Popovic riding for Team C.I.C.L.E. won a hotly contested race, carving her way through the elite women�s field and taking a direct path to the top of the podium. Erica Yozellof the Fort Factory Team took second place honors as Jessica Hill of Trail�s End Cycles brought home the bronze medal. rider Lisa Vible, the defending MABRA women�s champion, was fourth.

In the Elite Men�s race, the Italian powers that are Davide Frattini and Luca Damiani of Colavita/Sutterhome presented by Cooking Light team, charged to the front with teammates Andy Wulfkuhle and Weston Schempf in tow. A mid-race attack by Schempf was successful in splitting up the Italians. Two laps later Frattini launched his own attack, and opened a small gap on Schempf that he was able to keep to claim the victory. Home town hero Schempf would take the second step on the podium, followed by Damiani, and Dan Wilson riding for Monster Heath Cycling in fourth.

Greg Ferguson, Mid-Atlantic cross legend and Fort Factory rider, won the Elite Masters race, followed by Blair Saunders, of Henry�s Bikes and Mike Yozell, also from the Fort Factory team.

The next stop on the MABRA Championship series will be next week at the Ed Sander Memorial Cyclocross in Buckeystown, Maryland on September 30, 2007.
