This weekend's break in the OVCX schedule provided many local racers a much-needed rest weekend before digging into the last half of the season. Those that continued racing in the Ohio Valley were all strewn to their own regional endeavors with the Ohioans contesting their state championship, Kentuckians migrating south to participate in the Nashville series, and an old bastion of Indiana cyclcocross seeing new life at Major Taylor Velodrome. With Marian University taking over management of the velodrome and surrounding MTV Cycloplex facilities, ICX Cup racers got to see the first of three variations on the MTV cyclocross theme that will be contested this season.
Fred Rose took his first age agnostic Elite Men's podium of the season, coming in second behind Marian University's 19-year-old Josh Johnson. In the men's Cat 3 race, Tomasz Golas took fourth and Ashton Wishmeier took seventh.
