Meredith Miller put on a show to remember at Cross Vegas Wednesday night by outsprinting strong favorites Katie Compton and Katerina Nash for a career-highlight victory in front of thousands of fans. A longtime SRAM athlete, Miller of Noosa Pro Cyclocross was racing aboard a Focus frame equipped with SRAM Force CX1 with HydroR hydraulic disc brakes. Even for an accomplished racer like Miller, it was a landmark win. According to her team, Miller became only the second American to beat Compton in the past 10 years and the first rider to beat both Nash and Compton in the same race in America.
Miller’s componentry of choice is SRAM Force CX1, which is the evolution of SRAM’s innovative 1x (one-by) single chainring drivetrain perfected in MTB. The system relies on the X-Horizon™ rear derailleur, featuring a clutch, paired with the X-SYNC™ chainring. The combination creates a system that delivers better chain management and smooth shifting no matter the conditions or terrain. It is the only true drivetrain built specifically for cyclocross.
SRAM’s new HydroR™ hydraulic disc brakes deliver better control and confidence with a improvements that provide more power, better modulation, and less hand effort in a more comfortable, lighter and refined system.
