Boyle & Perkins victorious at opener

Uninsured, barely organized, never serious but always a good time October kicks off Outlaw Cyclocross season in the greater Truckee area. The past few years have turned into a Truckee/Reno battle royal that's sure to be the best ever for 2008. Join us.... if you dare.

Monty Boyle (Ridley Bikes) showed the Truckee Outlaw cyclocross series just how it's done at the season opener last Thursday. "Yea, I guess I won. I don't know if I'll win the series, but someone from Reno's gonna do it" Boyle casually stated after the race.

Matty Larsen (Stable Quiver, Reno) showed good form early and was leading for the first few laps. He would succom to the pressure from Boyle and settle for a second place finish. "I was just riding along today" mumbled the mid westerner afterwards. "I'll be bringing my A-game next week and some heads are gonna roll" he went on to say later.

John Svahn chased hard and would emerge third when the dust settled. "I would've won if I had a carbon seatpost" stated the Norwegian afterwards. "I've been doing some top secret training targeted to peak just after mid season" he went on to say.

The woman's race would see two new faces in this years series. Cass Perkins appears to be the one to beat as she outpaced Annie for most of the race. It was rumored later in the pits that Annie didn't want the weight of the points lead on her shoulders this early in the series. Is Perkins unbeatable or is Annie a master tactician.... only time will tell.

It's anybodies guess as to what the season will bring. Reno is definitely in it for the fame, glory, money and everything else that comes along with winning the Outlaw series. Truckee is down a man after last years series winner, Andrew Hall, moved back to Australia to start an organic vegemite operation. Some regulars were also missing from the morning race.... scared no doubt.
