THOMPSON, CT – Scott Smith, Dirt League, emerged from a field on the last lap to win the Men’s Pro 1/2/3 race at KMC Crossfest, Saturday, Sept. 29.
Smith attacked in a small field of three ahead of an off-camber chicane, and beat the chasers to the base of the uphill finish at the cyclo-cross race at Thompson Speedway in Thompson, CT.
“I knew going into the finish you had to be first into that chicane,” Smith said. “I probably did it too early, I tried to split it, going into One to Go. And I basically just ended up leading out everyone on the last lap. Because it kinda strung out, but it never totally snapped.”
Harrison White — Cyclocrossworld p/b Cannondale — finished one second behind for second, and Nick Lando — Bear Pro Team p/b Trek — finished third.
Racing continues Sunday, Sept. 30, with a UCI Men’s and Women’s Elite C2 race, U23 races, as well as many amateur races.
