USA Cycling names elite men's squad for Cyclo-cross World Championships

USA Cycling announced today the final round of nominations to the United States National Team for the 2010 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Tabor, Czech Republic, Jan. 30-31. Five athletes were named to the elite menís squad, rounding out the 20-rider U.S. contingent.

Jonathan Page (Northfield, N.H./Planet Bike) earned an automatic nomination to the team as the highest ranked American in the UCI cyclo-cross rankings in 16th-place. With 2009 accolades that include an eighth-place ride in round five of the World Cup in Igorre, Spain, the 2007 world championship silver medalist will lead the five-man team.

Also earning an automatic nomination to the team is Tim Johnson (Middleton, Mass/Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com). Fresh off of his win at the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships in Bend last month, Johnson is currently the second-highest American in the UCI rankings in 24th-place.

Ryan Trebon (Bend, Ore./KONA) earned the final automatic nomination to the menís squad by garnering the most points in five out of the six U.S. qualification races. With his silver medal performance at the national championships and his fourth-place ranking in the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Racing Calendar standings, Trebon should be a strong contender in Tabor.

Discretionary nominations went to Jeremy Powers (Hadley, Mass./Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com) and James Driscoll (Jericho, Vt./Cannondale-cyclocrossworld.com). After topping the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Racing Calendar standings, Powers rode to a strong fifth-place at the national championships last month. Driscol was third in the national calendar standings and sixth in the national championship race.
