Raleigh Clement’s Jamie Driscoll and Cal Giant’s Rachel Llyod took wins on day one of the Waves for Water Cyclocross Collaboration held at the LeMay Family Foundation Event Center outside of Tacoma, WA.

Rachel Llyod (Cal-Giant) started the day by taking the hole shot and held on to win with an eight-second gap over her closest competitor Amanda Miller (Boulder Cycle Sport/Yogaglo). Local Courtney McFadden (GE Capitol/American Classic) held on for third place.

Those three ladies escaped a field of 63 elite women early in the race, creating a gap large enough that no riders were able to jump across.

The group held together for the first three laps when Llyod put in a dig and broke free. She was riding strong after placing ninth in last week’s World Cup at Milton Keynes. Gaps remained steady throughout the race leaving Llyod plenty of time to post up for the win.

In the elite men’s race, local rider Logan Owen (Cal-Giant) wanted to win and went on the attack from the gun. He took the hole shot, but was quickly joined by Raleigh/Clement's Ben Berden, and later by Jamie Driscoll (Raleigh/Clement). The teammates worked well together, keeping Owen on the front the first half of the race. The trio animated the race and put on a show for spectators.

The lead changed hands multiple times, but a dual attack from Driscoll and Berden managed to put distance into the Cal Giant rider. In the end, it was Driscoll who came out on top, crossing the line with a small gap over his teammate Berden. Owen held on for third, some five seconds down.

Day two of Waves For Water Cyclocross Collective will be held a few miles away at Ft. Steilacoom Park in Lakewood Washington.

Waves For Water is a non-profit organization with a simple mission: “Get clean water to every single person who needs it.” To date, Waves for Water has helped provide access to clean water to over 7,500,000 people. For more information on Waves For Water visit www.wavesforwater.org.
