The talent was deep!
The best cyclocross racers in the midwest (including "hot shots" from Minneapolis and Chicago),
traveled from the surrounding states, to race at least one more time this season.
After a month of muddy racing, riders had to quickly "switch gears" (good one Jabitz) and adapt to a frozen (hard), slippery, and very sketchy course.
Jeff Abitz continually tested the limits of his tubular tyre's "edge grip" as he countinually slipped and drifted on the off cambers, and slick, sweeping turns. The efforts seemed to be "full gas" or gentle finesse.
Such is the sport of cyclocross we love.
