BEND — Hometown riders Chris Sheppard (Rocky Mountain Bicycles/Shimano) and Serena Bishop Gordon (Silverado Gallery/Sunnyside) played to the large Bend crowds Saturday at Cross Crusade #5, taking the Elite men’s and women’s wins on the same course used for the 2009-2010 USA Cycling National Championships.

But unlike those national championship events, which were held in mid-December’s wet, cold conditions, Bend’s dry October weather turned the course into a hard-packed dust bowl that quickly coated riders and their machines with a fine layer of powdery grit.
