[Ogden, Utah] – October 18, 2008 – MonaVie-Cannondale bicyclist Bart Gillespie won the Men’s A division in the third race of the 2008 Utah Cyclocross Series in Ogden, Utah, on Saturday, October 18.
Gillespie is gunning for his sixth consecutive Utah Cyclocross Series championship dating back to 2003. The annual UCS consists of 10 or more races in which competitors accumulate points based on where they finish in each race.
In cyclocross racing, bicyclists must complete several laps on short courses that feature different types of terrain as well as obstacles that require riders to quickly dismount and carry their bikes. The photo shows Gillespie effortlessly bunny hopping one of these natural barriers.
