Baker Orchard Cyclocross

Jordan posting up for his first 1/2s victory!

The amazing autumn weather kept up in Wisconsin this weekend. It was the perfect weather for fall cyclocross racing. Jordan Cullen headed north to Centuria, Wisconsin for the Baker Orchard cyclocross race. Jordan had helped setup the course and was able to get the course dialed in the day before the race. At the start line Jordan stood over his bike ready for the gun to go off. Right at the start he was third off the line behind Pat Lemieux and Adam Bergman. After about half of a lap Jordan was in a group of four with himself, Adam, Pat, and Johnathon Toftoy. The group stayed together until a lap later Pat fell off the group and it was down to three. Then, with 7 laps to go Jordan took off solo. He stayed off solo until three laps to go and then Johnathon bridged up to him but shelled Adam in the process. Those two stayed together until one lap to go but, what Jordan had noticed is that Adam was sitting only about five seconds back and Jordan knew that Adam was fast enough to chase up and still win. So going into the first set of barriers Jordan absolutely hammered into them and got a good gap on Johnathon. Then Jordan soloed into the finish in first place. Jordan is very pleased with his victory especially because it is his first category 1/2s race win.
