2017 Southeast Wyoming Cyclocross City Championships

Total riders fielded over the 4 races = 56

Laramie came out in force for the two races it hosted, winning the traveling trophy at its first home race - beating Cheyenne by a single rider and only loosing by a single rider at the second Laramie race.   Those two results assisted Laramie in taking second place (again) in the city competition.

Ft. Collins consistently sent riders up and had a racer in every race and took third in the city competition.
Total riders fielded over the 4 races = 10
