In only twenty-four hours, Gloucester, Massachusetts completely changed. USGP of Cyclocross racers who suffered though a cold, wet blizzard on Saturday were rewarded with clear skies and mild temperatures on Sunday and on a dry and wide open course, Lyne Bessette (Louis Garneau / cyclocrossworld.com) and Ryan Trebon (Kona) powered to solo wins.

A Kona chaser

In the women's race, Bessette simply did what she's been doing every race she's entered this year; taking the lead in the first lap and building a gap no-one can bridge. Bessette powered away from a field including the Kona trio of Georgia Gould, Canadian National Cyclocross Champion Wendy Simms and Ann Knapp and rode a time trial to the finish.

Behind, Knapp and Simms, who had broken away from Velo Bella rider Barbara Howe and others, showed the closest thing to the kind of form that might bring Bessette back. Of the pair, Knapp was the real surprise. The Seattle-based former national champion finished ninth in yesterday's race and hadn't earned a podium spot in any early-season 'cross race. She had even announced her retirement last season so it was remarkable to see her driving the chase.

"All summer I was pretending I was retired," Knapp said about her season so far. "And then it got cold out and I'm like 'oh, cyclocross is here.' I just had to race. So I rode a little bit of mountain bike, just for fun, but I didn't have a lot of training. Our first race was October 1st, and that was the first time I got my 'cross bike out. I figure I'll just have to ride my way into shape."

Sunday's performance may be an indication that Knapp may have returned to her old form faster than she expected but she insists her second-place showing had more to do with a desire to erase her poor performances in races up to this point. "You get tired of being mad about how you race, you just have to do something about it sometimes," she said

With one solid performance in the books, Knapp is officially out of retirement and looking to make the most out of the rest of the season. "I have some preparation to do before nationals and I hope to do the entire USGP. It's been fun and I just can't get upset about how I've done. You get out of 'cross what you put into it so I just need to put a little more in."

Yin and Yang

In the men's race, Kona's twin towers (Barry Wicks and Ryan Trebon) seemed to have a plan to prevent a repeat of yesterday's runaway win by hometown favorite Tim Johnson (Louis Garnea / cyclocrossworld.com). Trebon and Wicks took the hole shot and while Trebon motored off the front, Wicks dropped his tempo just enough to disrupt the rhythm of Johnson, Jesse Anthony (Team Clif Bar) and yesterday's second-place finisher Adam Craig (Giant).

"I wanted to go out hard and I was feeling really good on the first lap," Trebon said after the race adding that the tactic Wicks employed to help open up the gap was more the pair taking advantage of an opportunity than a specific strategy. "We have an approach to these races; me and Barry are both pretty fast starting out so we go hard and if we get a good gap, we try to make everybody else chase and then counter attack when they catch us."

Tactically, the pair executed the strategy perfectly. But in the intensity of a 'cross race, some of the field missed the significance of the move altogether. "I was unaware that the other Kona guy was out front for the first three laps," Adam Craig said after the race. "I was just riding tempo waiting for things to sort out then I realized that the rider in front of me was Barry and not Ryan and I was like 'oh, no wonder he's riding so slow when he gets to the front.'"

A frustrated Johnson tried to attack but was marked every time. Craig said that none of the attacks seemed to have legs. "I made the observation that if we just rode steady, we would bring any attack back." So after a little pressing and covering, Wicks, Johnson, Anthony and Craig were all stuck together until two laps to go. "I took the point through one of the descents and just railed my turns fast," Craig said. "I kept my momentum steady and that's what got Wicks and I off the front; not really attacking, just riding a good steady pace."

Trebon says he was comfortable but was feeling the effects of a cold. "I felt good for about the first ten minutes. In the next twenty minutes or so I was worried that I was starting to fade a little bit but I was able to keep it consistent."

"Ryan was riding much faster than the rest of us," Craig, who beat Wicks to the line in a two-up sprint, said. "Even on our fastest laps, he was still putting five seconds on us."

The rest of the series

With the win, Trebon took back the series leader's jersey he lost yesterday to Johnson. Trebon won't be the USGP series winner though; the lanky Oregonian plans to race in Europe during the month of November and won't be at the final two USGP races (Watsonville, November 19th and San Francisco, November 20th ).

Bessette pretty much just needs to show up in Northern California to secure the women's series. Before then, she'll race the Canadian National Championships (November 6th in Aurora, Ontario). After USGP, the organizers of the Providence, Rhode Island U.S. National Championships have invited Bessette to race in the men's field in the Pro Elite Liberty Cup race on December 11 th .

  • Wendy Simms (Kona) prepares herself for the race. She would work with teammate Ann Knapp in a thirty-minute attempt to pull back a runaway Lyne Bessette. They would not succeed.
  • CN diarist Barbara Howe sported devil’s horns for Sunday’s ‘cross race in Gloucester.
  • Lyne Bessette was calm and cool in Sunday’s race. Without the adversity of a blizzard, she was able to control the race with pure, world-class power.
  • Ann Knapp (Kona) has decided that since she’s racing a full season of ‘cross and is working her way into form for nationals, to stop referring to herself as retired.
  • Knapp and Bessette made the quick jump in the start of the women’s race. The pair would end up one-two on the day.
  • Bessette took the lead in the first lap and raced thirty-eight minutes of the forty-minute race alone.
  • Knapp and Simms worked together to chase Bessette.
  • Stacey Spencer and one of three Velo Bellas in the elite women’s field (Barbara Howe, Melodie Metzger and Christine Vardaros) weaved on a course that ran through an enthusiastic crowd.
  • With more than a minute on second place, Bessette had the time to take a cautious approach to the barrier section.
  • Knapp and Simms chasing.
  • With three laps to go, Bessette appeared to be having mechanical trouble (she kept paying attention to her left pedal) but she skipped the pits and finished without problems.
  • Ann Knapp says she only pulled her ‘cross bike out of the garage on October 1st; for Seattle’s Star Crossed Cyclocross.
  • Mostly dry, the Gloucester course had a few damp patches in the lower half of the park. Nothing could slow Bessette down though.
  • Bessette rode a backwards no hander across the finish line (just kidding; it’s just that since she’s won so many races this season, we’ve said everything that can be said about Bessette’s two-handed winning salute)
  • Adam Craig finished second in the muck on Saturday after a race of calamity (dropped handlebar, flat tires, crazy conditions). He looked a little more encouraged about the day ahead in Sunday’s sunshine.
  • Former US Pro National Champion Mark McCormack (Clif Shot/Felt).
  • The wrist Ryan Trebon injured in this year’s International Tour de ‘Toona has healed to the point where he no longer needs a brace or wrap for racing.
  • Barry Wicks took a quiet moment at the start to calm himself. He used that cleared head to execute an intelligent strategy of blocking for solo winner Ryan Trebon.
  • The Kona boys got the hole shot, setting up Trebon to go off the front on a solo attack while Wicks kept the front of the rest of the race under control.
  • Jesse Anthony (competing in the U23 category) , Adam Craig and Tim Johnson could do nothing but ride behind Barry Wicks. Every time someone made a press to get around, Wicks made sure he shut them down.
  • Trebon had clean wind and a clear course to race on. Mostly; with four laps to go, the lanky Kona rider found himself weaving through the back third of the elite men’s field.
  • Craig and Wicks got away with two laps to go and dueled for second place. Craig took the sprint; his second second place in the two days of Gloucester.
  • After two barriers riders had to negotiate this fifty-foot run-up.
  • The four chasers (Wicks, Johnson, Craig and Anthony).
  • Six foot, five-inch Trebon’s 62cm Kona Jake the Snake had to be custom made (Kona didn’t offer the frame in that size).
  • Adam Craig says he plans to race until nationals then he’s taking a one-month hiking trip in China with a group of friends at the end of December.
  • A protégé of Mark McCormack U23 National Champion Jesse Anthony looked comfortable at the head of the elite men’s race.
  • Tim Johnson grimaced through much of the second half of Sunday’s race. It seems that the amount of energy he spent to survive on his hour-long solo breakaway in Saturday’s blizzard-plagued race didn’t leave him much punch for Sunday.
  • The elite women’s podium - Ann Knapp (2nd), Lyne Bessette (1st), Wendy Simms (3rd).
  • The U23 men’s podium - Troy Wells (2nd), Jesse Anthony (1st), Christian Meier (3rd)
  • The elite men’s podium - Adam Craig (2nd), Ryan Trebon (1st), Barry Wicks (3rd)
