Berden surges to big Boulder win

Driscoll, Trebon complete Colorado podium

Ben Berden (Raleigh-Clement) scored his second victory of the 2012-2013 cyclo-cross season, following up his success in the muddy Gateway Cup in St. Louis last month with another top step in a sloppy Colorado 'Cross Classic.

The Belgian took the opening round of the weekend in Boulder over the Cannondale/Cyclocrossworld duo Jamey Driscoll and Ryan Trebon.

Local favourite Danny Summerhill finished a disappointed fourth place.

Summerhill led for the opening laps, but was overtaken by Trebon, who attacked and soloed to what looked to be a sure victory. But in the closing stages of the race, a bobble and a strong rally from Berden and Driscoll made a leading group of three at the head of the race: Trebon, Berden and Driscoll.

Berden attacked in the ending stages of the race, and was able to distance Trebon and then get the better of Driscoll to claim the win.
