Grant takes Carson City Off-Road win

Beisel is second, nearly five minutes back

Leading for two laps Amy Beisel (Pro Cycling) certainly looked like she could win the race. She was climbing better than Rose Grant (Stans-Pivot), but Grant was faster on the downhills. After two laps, Beisel was not able to maintain the pace and Rose Grant when on to claim victory and a $5,000 check. Beisel finished in second place nearly five minutes behind.

Defending champion Katerina Nash (Clif Pro Team) uncharacteristically was gapped by two minutes during the first lap but made up the margin on the descent back into town. In the end she finished third almost ten minutes behind Grant. Evelyn Dong (Full Cycle) rode very consistently for claim fourth place, while Maghalie Rochette (Clif Pro Team) finished fifth after nearly two heroic laps of helping her teammate Katerina.

Rose Grant commented on her race, "Amy had a super solid two laps. Kudos to her. It was a good sustainable pace and I didn't feel the need to go any harder...at times she would get a couple seconds on me but I would just draw her in as the course suited me. My pace stayed about the same and she faded a bit (on the third lap). I was just able to pull a lead out."
