Tim Johnson, US Champ again

Yesterday, Tim Johnson schooled the rest of the american cyclocross racers and won his third National Championship. Teamate Jeremy Powers started strong, Tim was positioned perfectly and when disaster struck for Powers, Tim seized his chance and got away from the rest with smooth, fast laps one after the other. Ben Ross captured it well in the picture above with Ryan Trebon behind a gap that would increase every lap.

After his crash and a bike change, Jeremy still managed to come back strong and bridge to Jonathan Page and Todd Wells but eventually finished 5th by sprinting ahead of his other teamate, Jamey Driscoll. Not a bad day for the Cannondale-cyclocrossworld.com team after all. Let's hope the three amigos can do something in Europe, Jeremy and Jamey are heading there this week, Tim will join them later to do the last World Cup and the World Championships in Tabor. Good luck guys!
