Mackenzie, Butler claim Single Speed Cyclocross World Titles

Under a calm autumn sky, two world titles were claimed this past weekend in Portland at the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships. Canadian Drew Mackenzie stormed the field to claim his first ever world title, ahead of Seattle's Craig Etheridge and Winthrop's Solomon Woras. The wild and crazy race had a gauntlet of obstacles, including a giant wall of bubble bath and a windmill atop the muddy run-up.

Portland's Sue Butler took no prisoners as she rode away from Wendy Williams and Megan Farris to score the coveted golden bikini. The winners of the race also won a custom frame and a tattoo.

Trebon and Butler win at Cross Crusade

Ryan Trebon (Kona) and Sue Butler (Monavie Cannondale) cruised to respective victories in the Elite Men's and Women's fields at the seventh stop in the Cross Crusade Series. Trebon showed up to race the coveted SSCXWC race, but was not allowed to race unless he won both the regular Single Speed and Elite Men's races, which he did, rightfully earning his spot in the final race of the day noted above. He made his move midway through the race and shut down the engines early to easily claim victory. The series contines next weekend at Portland International Raceway. Click here for full results.
