CX Stitch contest heats up - big time

After the Iowa Spooky CX weekend, Leah Kleager is tied with Wanda Simchuk - each with two wins on two different weekends. However, if SHECLISMO's cat 4 upstart Allison Hunt upgrades before Halloween she'll get a 75 point bonus and be jettisoned to the top of the cat 3 rankings.
Wanda Simchuk, Women's Free State Racing Team (KS)

Allison Hunt, SHECLISMO (Lincoln, NE)

Leah Kleager, Midwest Cycling Community (Omaha, NE)

For the category 4's, Smart Honda's Jen Filipiak (IA) sits in the lead with 195 points and is tied with SHECLISMO's Jolene Holland (Omaha, NE).  Katherine Kelter of KU Cycling holds third and SHECLISMO's Sara Nispel comes in fourth at only 5 points down. Looks like the Greenstreet showdown will shake this contest up as well. Will Kelter and Filipiak make it to the Big O and contest Holland for the title? Will Nispel's focus on handling skills this season pay off on the Nebraska State championship course?

In the team standings, SHECLISMO holds a commanding lead despite Free State's Sandy Collin's attempt to collect some points at the Spooky event. However, word has it that Free State is coming to Omaha in force and as the "travel team" they'll get to count their top five riders while home team, SHECLISMO, will only get their top three towards team points. The November 10 & 11 weekend is going to be a showdown.

In the single speed division, SHELCISMO's Berly Brown holds 10 points over teammate Kat Schiffler.
