Cross season getting thick



The cyclocross season has already started but now we are getting bigger races with more big names on both sides of the Atlantic. On this side, it looked like winter yesterday in Fort Collins for the USGP, conditions were cold and muddy, perfect for a cross race. Katie Compton was back but surprisingly, she finished 2nd, it was Katerina Nash who took the win. The men's race saw a strong Ryan Trebon stomp his authority and again, the 2nd place was a surprise, a nice one with Geoff Kabush catching and passing Jeremy Powers at the end.

Today, more dirt with the first Superprestige won by Popeye's wife look alike Helen Wyman taking the women's race and Niels Albert winning a few seconds ahead of Bart Aernouts. Klaas Vantornout completed the podium in front of the former cream of the crop: Sven Nys fourth, Bart Wellens fifth and Stybar, who was on the front then faded, finished in sixth. For the american fans, Johnathan Page DNF'ed with a broken front wheel.

Later today, the second day of the Fort Collins USGP will be broadcasted live from Cycling Dirt.
