Davide Frattini (Hudz-Subaru) and Laura Van Gilder (C3-Athletes Serving Athletes) doubled up on Sunday at the Charm City Cross Weekend, round 2 of the 2010 Champion System MAC Series.

Frattini and Van Gilder, who won Saturday’s opener at Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, Maryland, both soloed to victory on Sunday.

Frattini rode away from Cyfac-Champion System teammates Valentin Scherz and Anthony Grand to claim his second win. Scherz finished second with his teammate third.

Van Gilder launched from the starting blocks like a woman on a mission. She opened a small gap and held it for a comfortable win. The battle of the day was for the second spot on the podium, which went to Kristen Gavin. Van Gilder’s teammate Arley Kemmerer finished third.

The next stop for the Champion System MAC Series is the WhirlyBird ’Cross September 26 in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania.
