Compton Doubles up in Boulder, WI Halloween Racing

After a few weekends off of racing to focus on training Katie Compton continued her winning streak in muddy Boulder. The area received nearly 20 inches of snow earlier in the week and promoters were forced to move Sunday's race to a drier venue. Compton rode away from the competition each day to take decisive wins. Katie will head to Europe for the next month and will be wearing her World Cup leaders jersey this weekend in Nommay, France.

Meanwhile most of the Elite team were racing locally in Wisconsin at the Washington Park Halloween race. In the Mens race Tristan took the win

and the mysteriously moustached James was 2nd

In the womens race a devilish Kristin won (check out the coffin hop!)

Lady Bug Kaitie had a solid second place until 2 laps to go when a mechanical forced her to run nearly half a lap to get her pit bike. Kaitie still held on to a solid 4th

Other Planet Bikers out for the races included:


Diane (nice hopping skills!)

Patti (who suffered a nasty crash - hope you're feeling better soon!)

and Sarah
