Lauren Wins The Rad Dirt FestJan Heine
A huge congrats to Lauren de Crescenzo for winning The Rad Dirt, the final round of the Lifetime Grand Prix race series. Averaging 19.08 mph (30.71 km/h), Lauren surged into the lead on the challenging 110-mile (177 km) course that traversed the remote and rugged Spanish Peaks region of Colorado.
Lauren made her move at the half-way point on a big climb, and finished more than two minutes ahead of second-placed finisher Alexis Skarda (right). Crystal Anthony was third.
Lauren’s Cinch Racing teammates Tori Dippolt (left) finished 13th in the star-studded field, while Caroline Wreszin (2nd from left) came 22nd. Holly Matthewes (right) was coaching the team this weekend. Congratulations to all of them.
Asked about the tires the team (above Caroline at speed) rode at The Rad Dirt., Cinch Racing’s Tom Danielson replied: “We used the 700×44 Snoqualmie Pass Endurance Plus! They were so fast!”
