Katerina Nash (Luna) won the opening day at the KMC Cyclo-cross Festival on Saturday. She attacked a lead group mid-race and finished the race alone ahead of Katie Compton (Trek), who lost some time due to a mishap part way through the race and ended up finishing second. Amanda Miller (Boulder Cycle Sport) finished third.

The KMC Cyclo-cross Festival's opening day offered a C1 event for both the elite men and women on Saturday. The race was held at Roger Williams Park in Providence, and offered a great course with a mixture of sticky mud, grass and a flyover, for just some of the technical aspects of the course.

US champion Katie Compton, Ellen Nobel and recent CrossVegas World Cup winner Katerina Nash, opened up a small gap on the second lap of the women's race. They were later joined by Amanda Miller, while double silver medallist at the road World Championships in the junior events Emma White, Courtenay McFadden and Maghalie Rochette lagged slightly behind the leaders.

Compton crashed into the barriers on the fourth lap and lost contact with the front three riders, and was forced to chase for almost an entire lap. Compton caught both Miller and Nobel, however, Nash had forced a gap and was several seconds off the front. 

Nash originally had a 10-second gap but lost some of that time, and held her gap at roughly five seconds ahead of Compton with less than one lap to go.
