Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies rider Kerry Werner claimed his first-ever UCI victory on day two of the Super Cross Cup in Stony Point, NY, improving on his 3rd place finish from day one. Coincidentally, Werner outkicked Dan Timmerman (House Industries/Simplehuman) and newly signed Optum p/b KBS road rider Curtis White (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld) who finished 3rd. Kerry claimed his first-ever UCI podium two weeks ago at Iowa’s Jingle Cross.
“My fitness level is beginning to come around after a tough start to the season. I earned my first UCI podium last weekend, and now my first UCI victory, so I’m excited to continue my good form heading into my big late season goals,” said Werner.
After bridging across to Timmerman and White with three laps to go, Werner made his “now or never” attack midway through the last lap and held his advantage to the finish.
