Helen Wyman (Kona) led a select group for what seemed like the whole race, while towing Ellen Noble (Asprire Racing) and Emma White (Cannondale). With two laps remaining, Noble attacked and was able to achieve the winning margin in the opening day of cyclo-cross racing in Gloucester.

Ellen Noble said, "I had a plan to go later in the race. I didn't know exactly when. I was trying to read the race. Helen (Wyman) and I opened a super small gap and I thought that was my chance. Attacking one person is a lot easier than attacking two."
