Marked by a fine fall day, the 2013 Boulder Cup made for a solid day of racing as riders took to the particularly challenging course at Boulder’s Valmont Bike Park. While perhaps not the most ideal conditions for ‘cross--clear skies and plenty of sun--folks weren’t exactly disappointed as Boulder was more than owed a bit of fair weather. The women’s race would see a triumphant Katie Compton, who rode in alone a minute up on the rest of the field, while Jeremy Powers won a hard-fought battle in the mens race.
