Pro XCT - Windham, New York

Jeremiah Bishop Takes Close Win Over Zandstra as Lea Davison Dominates

The PRO XCT Series headed east this past weekend to Windham, NY for round seven of the nine race series. And though a number of top pros missed the race due to scheduling conflicts, overall contenders Todd Wells (Specialized), Jeremiah Bishop (Cannondale), and Lea Davison (Specialized) all made the trip hoping to score valuable points, ensuring top level racing on Saturday.

Seemingly endless rain in the weeks leading up the race had many predicting a mud fest. But instead the skies stayed clear on Friday, and though storm clouds remained threatening on the horizon, the sun stayed out throughout the day on Saturday. As a result, racers had to contend with high humidity, temperatures in the mid eighties, exposed, sun baked climbs, and some lingering mud in some of the shaded descents.

The pro women kicked off the festivities, and "local” racer Lea Davison (Specialized) wasted no time in setting a ferocious tempo up the courses first fire road climb. With a sizable crew of family and friends cheering her on, Davison had a clear gap heading into the first short singletrack section and never looked back, steadily increasing her advantage as the race progressed.

Amanda Sin (Scott) did her best to limit the damage and rode well to finish second, but she was never able to challenge Davison. Behind, New England cyclocross phenom Crystal Anthony (Riverside Racing) showed she's got skills on the mountain bike too, and rode to a strong third. Erica Tingey (Jamis) and Haley Smith (Norco) rounded out the podium.

The men's race saw a three way battle between Jeremiah Bishop (Cannondale), Todd Wells (Specialized), and Derek Zandstra (Scott). Many had predicted Howard Grotts (Specialized), fresh off his first big pro win in Missoula last weekend, to challenge here too, but a crash on the first lap forced him to abandon. Instead, it was Bishop and Wells, two veterans of American racing, off the front early, with Zandstra chasing behind. Bishop and Wells traded blows until Bishop was able to get a gap on lap five. "Sometimes when you get a gap you just have to go for it,” Bishop said after the race. With the Sho-Air Cannondale racer going all in off the front, Wells, who later admitted he's simply been beaten, was struggling. That left an opening for the hard charging Zandstra to close the gap and ride into second.

In the end, Bishop was able to secure the win and put himself in position to win the PRO XCT overall with two rounds remaining. Zandstra took second, while Wells rolled in for third. Behind the leading trio, local hero Justin Lindine (Redline) was having one of his best pro cross country races ever, riding in sixth. And while he just missed the podium, a clearly happy Lindine was cheered all the way to the line by local fans.

Stephan Ettinger (BMC) and Antoine Caron (Specialized) rounded out the pro men's podium.

The PRO XCT Series now heads to Wisconsin before the final round at the Catamount Family Center in Williston, VT.
