Day 2 Press Release

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (Nov. 14, 2010) - Reigning national champions Tim Johnson (Cennondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com) and Katie Compton (Planet Bikes/Stevens) delivered simple declarative statements today, dominating each respective race in front of a massive Colorado crowd.

That Compton won is not news. Bouncing back from a second place ride on Saturday, Compton proved why she is a favorite not just for America but for the world. She withstood the opening attacks on the first lap and then delivered a single, first-round knockout punch that left all but Katerina Nash (Luna) on their backs.

Gould and Johnson Lead Series Overall

Day 1 Press Release

November 13, 2010 (Fort Collins, CO) -- Favorites were upended on a muddy fifth stop of the Greenware® US Gran Prix of Cyclocross as Canadian Geoff Kabush (Rocky Mountain/Maxxis) and Katerina Nash (Luna) of the Czech Republic both scored exciting wins at the New Belgium Cup.

"I was happy to see us finally racing in some muddy, sloppy conditions," said Kabush, a Canadian national champion and Olympian who had not scored a major cyclo-cross win in six years. He did so by knocking the dominant Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com team off their streak of winning the first four Greenware® USGP events and positioning two riders on every podium to date this season.

the was less that 3 inches

the was less that 3 inches on the flyover yesterday afternoon.

the course was maybe less than an inch in most places, with a couple of really muddy sloppy sections.

i'm not a cx racer but the word from some of the guyss who are is that its a monster course. lots of climbing and divebombs with corners at the bottom.

i'm leaving for the course right now so i havetn seen it yet today but i bet the snow is melted and its even muddier.

word is we MIGHT get a little more snow tomorrow.
