Aldridge captures 4th cyclocross race

Morgan Aldridge won the overall and women’s race Thursday in the fourth race of the Chainwreck Cyclocross Series at Tsalteshi Trails.

In this cyclocross series, racers compete on a 1.5- to 2-mile course that includes obstacles forcing the riders to dismount and mount the bike. The leader does as many laps as possible in 30 minutes, and nobody starts another lap after the leader finishes.

Aldridge finished five laps in 38 minutes, 17 seconds, while C.O. Rudstrom was second with five laps at 38:24 and Nels Dahl was third with five laps at 39:45. Emma Blake was the second woman, and eighth overall, at 42:26.

The series concludes Thursday with a race from the Skyview Middle School trailhead at Tsalteshi. Registration is at 5:45 p.m., while the race starts at 6:15 p.m.
