Loris Rouiller (Heizomat-Kloster Kitchen) returned to the top step of the podium on Sunday when he took advantage of a mistake by Anton Ferdinande (DHM) in the final corners to win the C2 elite men’s race at Virginia’s Blue Ridge GO Cross.  The two had been in the lead in the final lap and seemed set to sprint it out for victory when Ferdinande dropped his chain.

Chasing close behind, Vincent Baestaens (Spits CX season) was able to come around to take second place while a disappointed Ferdinande had to settle for third.
