Anderberg, Lach also claim junior women's titles

The junior women's 13-14 racers competed in the second race of the day. Mina Anderberg (Sports T.E.A.M.-T.E.A.M. Fuji) rode away with the third national title of her career by outlasting Wisconsin-native and multi-time national champ on the road Skylar Schneider. Anderberg was able to open a gap on Schneider by riding up a run-up.

"It went awesome, I did exactly what I wanted," Anderberg said. "It was perfect conditions for me, I love the mud, and it was just really good."

In the junior women's 10-12 race, 11-year-old Sydney Lach (Queen City Wheels-Lionhearts) credited a fast start to her winning the first national title of her career. Lach was over a minute faster than her closest competitor on the first lap and she completed her second lap two minutes faster than any other rider in her age group.

As the sun shone on the course and the ground loosened further, the junior women's 17-18 field contested their three-lap race. Wisconsin-native Corrie Osborne (ISCorp Cycling Team) and Allison Arensman (Fiets Maan Racing) turned in an opening lap 20 seconds faster than the next rider. Osborne's second lap opened a 26-second margin on Arensman before winning the race by 1:14 to secure the second national title of her career.

"My coach was building me up to this race so I'm at my peak right now." Osborne said. "So its really good."

The junior women's 15-16 event started just one minute after the 17-18 group started. It took until the first climb of the first lap for Emma White ( to establish herself as the cream of the crop. She started passing riders in the 17-18 race by the first climb and crossed the line third with one lap remaining. Her strong start of her race allowed her to win by 31 seconds.

"I tend to have good starts, I feel strong in my starts," White said. "So I like to take advantage of them and see where I can go."
