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