Frank Gonzalez - A National Champion

Frank Gonzalez is the Masters 50-54 National Champion.  Most people who are in the cyclocross scene in Montana know about Frank.  He's always at the front of races and could fill a trophy case with all his podiums.  I think what most people don't know is the quality of masters talent in Montana.  The fact that Frank is 50+ and racing at the front of regular cat 1/2 races is inspiring.  He has been doing this for the last 10 years.

The other thing about Frank's fabulous result is that it's well deserved.  He has been so close in marathon nationals, cyclcoross nationals, and xc nationals.  It's been mechanicals, bad luck, ect.  The beauty of the sport is that if you continue to work hard things will happen for you.  Enjoy the off season Frank.  Super proud of you and all the work you've put in.  What a result!

Please note the change in starts times:

12pm - Early Race - Cat 4, Cat 5, Juniors, Women, Master B

Confirmation of categories for which times coming shortly.  Myke Hersmeyer took some great shots of last year's race.  His Facebook page,

A Classic like none other, Connelly at Herron Park.  One of the most underrated crossers of all time.

Pug life will be out for sure.

This run up is always nasty, expect it for state champs.

Recovering from injury Pug Life wants a strong 2nd half of the cross season.  He's a favorite for medallions.

Herron CX sets up nicely for AA.  He had a strong ride last year.


Bring the family, it's a fun community event and this year it will be the state championship.
