Woodruff and Zandstra win Whiskey Fat Tire Crit

First day of racing gets underway in Arizona

On Friday evening, thousands lined the streets with cowbells, cheering on the pro men in the fat tire criterium as they watched the action unfold between some of North America's best talent, with Derek Zandstra from Scott 3Rox team coming out on top for the men.

The pro women's fat tire criterium saw several lead changes and came down to the last lap with Chloe Woodruff from team Backcountry.com setting an aggressive pace up the final climb and around the entire final lap to secure first place in front of her hometown crowd.

Saturday evening was capped off with an event honoring mountain bike legend Ned Overend.
