After five days of championships and some 1,600 racers, ranging from age 8 to 80, the dust and mud settled into chilling evening as the last competitor crossed the finish line.

Sunday ended the series with several high-profile races, including the afternoon elite races. Katie Compton won the elite women’s race with 49 seconds ahead of second-place Elle Anderson, adding a 10th championship to her winning streak. In the men’s elite competition, Jeremy Powers finished first, 43 seconds ahead of Ryan Trebon in second.

After last weeks snowstorm the track was more dry than wet with an outside temperature of 35 degrees.

The city landed the race as one of three bids on the 2014 calendar that gave Boulder its first Cyclocross National Championship. The Valmont Bike Park will turn three years old in June.
