  • The Elite menís race gets underway. On the front row, Mark McCormack, Ryan Trebon, Tim Johnson, Jonathan Page, Todd Wells, Adam Craig, Michael Cody, Matt White, Jeremy Powers, Jonathan Baker, Erik Tonkin, Jonathan Hamblen, Matt Shriver
  • Ryan Trebon (Kona) and Todd Wells (GT Hyundai) made the front of the early selection in the Elite menís U.S. Cyclocross National Championships.
  • Although defending three-time national champion Jonathan Page stayed in contact with Trebon for much of the race, he didnít have enough energy after spending the previous evening at the hospital with severe stomach flu to mount a challenge for the 2005 championship.
  • Former USPRO National Champion Mark McCormack ooked strong early in the race.
  • Wells, Trebon and Page stuck together until about the fourth of nine total laps when Page fell of and Wells upped the pressure to get a gap he would maintain all the way to the finish.
  • Adam Craig - who by all rights should be laying on a beach somewhere getting rested for next yearís MTB season - managed a respectable fourth.
  • Jonathan Page was sponsored by National Championships underwriter Liberty Mutual for the weekend and wore Liberty Seguros team kit in the Elite race.
  • This is how the race developed - Page chased Trebon who chased Wells. Neither chase would be successful.
  • Craig tapped into his MTB skill (riding lines racers had been walking all day) and almost caught Page in the final two laps.
  • With the dominant riders well up the course, the rest of the field was left battling for bragging rights.
  • Jason Tullous of the Voodoo Cycles/drunkcyclist.com grass-roots team.
  • Wells said ďI rode as hard as I could,Ē after the race.
  • Trebon, after faltering mid-race found a renewed vigor and mounted a last-lap challenge that saw him claw within five bike lengths of Todd Wells. He just didnít have enough punch to beat the Coloradan up the finishing straight.
  • Jelly Bellyís Jeremy Powers followed Jonathan Pageís footsteps this season; heís been racing a full program in Europe.
  • Wells face demonstrates the condition of the course.
  • The Elite menís podium - Todd Wells, Ryan Trebon, Jonathan Page, Adam Craig, Tim Johnson.
