A short video of the first race of the 2010 Utah Cyclocross Series, held at Andy Ballard Equestrian Center in Draper, Utah. After a summer mostly lost to mono, Bart Gillespie came out and showed that when it comes to cyclocross, there is no one better in Utah, opening up a 30+ second gap on the first lap, and increasing his lead through the entire race.

As Alex Grant (2nd place, Elite Men) indicated after he finished, “Bart gave a ‘cross clinic, but we were all too far off the back to see it.”

Video shot by Sam Ray, who has been doing a great job documenting the the series over the past couple of years. Since I generally only get to see what’s going on in the start/finish area, Sam’s videos are often the only way for me to really get an idea what happened in the races.
