On day one of the final weekend of the Verge New England Championship Cyclo-cross Series, Dan Timmerman (Richard Sachs/RGM/Radix) showed the tenacity that has clinched him the series title. A disastrous start with a mechanical that left him at the back of the field set up one of the most dominant performances this rider has put out this season.

While Timmerman was fighting his way through the pack, Adam Myerson (Cycle Smart) and Luke Keough (Champion System) were in control at the front. Once he reached the front group, Timmerman simply rode through with five to go and soloed to victory, further extending his already insurmountable series lead.

Behind him, Myerson and Keough gained Justin Lindine (bikereg.com/Joe's Garage/IF) in the quest for the rest of the podium. The pace set by Myerson and Lindine dropped Keough and Myerson easily outsprinted Lindine for second. Keough ended up fifth overall and first Under 23. This assures his Under 23 series victory.

The final race of the series is Sunday.
