Can't keep Mackenzie off the podium at OVCX

Sunday, the most recent Velocity USA-sponsored rider, Mackenzie Woodring, took 1st place at the Ohio Valley Cyclocross Series -- for the third race in a row. Impressive, and even more so considering she's coming back from a DNF in the first race of the series.

Since then, even a snapped derailleur hanger hasn't been able to keep her from the #1 spot: Mackenzie ran her bike to a first place finish at race #3.

Chloe Dygert, of Midwest Devo, snagged the number one spot in the first race of the series and has kept right on Mackenzie's wheel in every subsequent race.

Mackenzie's killer performance is attracting attention around the internet, with write ups and interviews on cxmagazine.com, dirtwire.tv, and an upcoming interview with her fat-tire-loving counterpart, Danielle Musto, on her internet radio show, "Girls & Gears." Tune in at 8 p.m. EST this Thursday.
