On Sunday Nov. 4, Maghalie Rochette became the 2018 Pan Am Champion in a thrilling elite women’s race at the Silver Goose in Midland, Ont. She rode a strong race keping pace with a red-hot Ellen Noble until the penultimate lap. In the elite men’s race, Michael van den Ham piled on the pressure whittling down the front of the race until only two remained. Despite opening up the sprint, van den Ham was narrowly outsprinted in one of the closest finishes you’ll ever see in a cyclocross race by Curtis White.
