Clif Bar CrossVegas is arguably America's biggest cyclocross race, and this year was no different. The Elite Men's start line was packed with national champions including two-time World Champion Sven Nys (Crelan-AA Drink), Dutch Champion Lars van der Haar (Shimano-Giant), and US National Champion Jeremy Powers (Rapha Focus). In this edition of How The Race Was Won, Cosmo breaks down 60 minutes of intense racing into three and a half minutes of even more intense analysis. The race was complete with crashes, big attacks, and plenty of elbow-bumping.
