Interesting. Katie was injured for CX Vegas but kicked some ass today in Wisconsin at the USGP. Maybe it’s the equal prize money? I am glad to see her racing again.
Coming off her own knee issues suffered at the UCI World Mountain Bike Championship, Katie Compton (Planet Bike/Stevens) decided to race the day before. And she rode right back to her top form, rolling away from Luna challengers Georgia Gould and Amy Dombroski.
Although able to solo to victory, Compton did not seem as dominant early on as Sue Butler (Hudtz Subaru) and Andrea Smith (Milton CAT) opened strongly. When Compton did launch an attack, only Dombroski could respond. A second surge from Compton disposed of Dombroski just Meredith Miller (California Giant/Specialized) came forward. Gould would pass Dombroski to score a second place finish. Dombroski held for third with Miller in fourth, Butler in fifth.
