Trebon solos to his fourth major win
Kona's star cyclocross rider Ryan Trebon has proven to be unbeatable this weekend after winning this afternoon's Wissahickon Cross UCI C2 event. The Trebon train took off and the only one on board was Tim Johnson (Cyclocrossworld.com). The two riders worked together until Trebon decided it was time to win, with six laps remaining, leaving Johnson to finish a strong second place. The podium became complete after Barry Wicks (Kona) won a two up sprint against US Cyclocross champion Todd Wells (Team GT) for third.
"Tim and I were together for the first part of the race today and I just punched it hard in the head wind to get a bit of a gap on him," said Trebon. "I got away from him with six laps to go. I just tried to keep the same speed the whole time even though I was alone. But it feels great to win back-to-back races this weekend."
Trebon showed his 'cross versatility winning on a course completely different from the previous day's event. "Today's circuit was much faster and more technical than yesterday, with lost of turns," said Trebon. "I think there were many sections that made this circuit really hard because of the wind. There were a lot of head wind sections that I had to power through and I think that is where I was able to get away from Tim. He said he wasn't feeling so good today so I wanted to make him work harder," joked Trebon.
Johnson has been known for his strength on the technical side of 'cross racing. Although much of today's circuit proved to be technically demanding there may have been too many 'powerful' sections playing into Trebon's strengths. "I like the tighter and twistier type courses because I feel like that's where I can keep the speed up," said Johnson. "Today was very fast and dry and this course was kind of half technical and half powerful.
"His fitness is really strong," said Johnson. "I can gain on him in the corners a little but when he stands up and goes he just puts the power down on me. That is why I need something like snow or mud to even out the horsepower a little bit between us."
The podium door was shut by Trebon's Kona teammate Barry Wicks in a sprint against Todd Wells. The two riders escaped a group of four chasing Trebon and Johnson midway through the race. "There was a small group that was chasing Tim and Ryan," said Wicks. "I was riding at the back when Todd Wells attacked. I was caught behind and he got away. It took me a couple of laps just to get around the others and catch up to him. But this is the type of course where you need to be able to ride smoothly with the riders you are with.
"It took me a while to get ensinc with Todd through the corners, but once we knew we were not going to catch Tim, we started to watch each other instead. I knew he was starting to hurt by the end," added Wicks.
Today's event marks Trebon's fourth major win this season and his strength has not gone unnoticed by his competitors. "I could not get over how strong he is," said Johnson. "I say this over and over again but he is so strong - he should be beating up on guys named Vervecken and Nijs in Europe, not guys like Wicks and Johnson. The guy is heads and shoulders above everyone I know here, he is just that much stronger."
Bessette gives Compton a run for her money
US cyclocross champion Katie Compton (Spike Professional/Primus Mootry) repeated her win over Canadian champion Lyne Bessette (Cyclocrossworld.com) - only this time around the battle was fierce. The womens' race began much like the mens', with the two strongest riders separating themselves from the field. "I wanted to do my own race and get out there and give the whole shot, to start out front and that is what I did," said Lyne Bessette."The first part of the circuit is really tricky and on the first lap I am always more nervous, so it is easy to make mistakes sometimes. I pre-road the course with my husband, Tim, which helped me a lot and I knew exactly what I was going to do today.
"Katie is really strong and there was a much better battle today than there was yesterday. I wanted to be able to stay on her wheel from the very beginning and that is what I did," she added.
Bessette glued herself to Compton's wheel until the two had a significant gap over third placed US mountain bike champion, Georgia Gould. "Once we got off the front, we worked together a little but I never pulled as hard as I could when I was at the front and I am sure she did not either," said Bessette. "But neither of us wanted Georgia to come to us because she is so good technically, and today was a technical course."
With no imminent threat of Gould, Compton and Bessette worked together until the final few hundred meters of the race. "I think Lyne had better legs today," said Compton. "We were taking turn pulling and there were a few sections where I tried to accelerate but she was too strong for me to get away. I think we were very evenly paced today and so we ended up just working together to try to stay out the front."
Neither rider could shake the other and in the end it was a tactical game to the finish line. "We were switching a lot coming into the finish and hesitating to let the other person take the lead," said Compton. "I knew that coming into the sprint it would be better to be on her wheel. But I was stuck in front so I did not want to start the lead out too fast because it would have made it easier for her. I just tried to watch her, wait and then just go when I felt her about to go."
In the final three hundred meters it was Compton who lead out the sprint and Compton who won the race. "I was sitting on Katie coming into the sprint and she started it shorter - I think I probably should have started the sprint earlier," said Bessette. "But, I am really happy with my race today and I feel like it was much better than yesterday"
Many of the 'cross riders and spectators have noticed a difference in the level of competition entered in the women's cross events this year. "It was really fun to race head to head with another woman," said Compton. "She usually races here and I race in Colorado so we don't get to race each other often. It was nice to race together to see how our strengths compare. I think Bessette had great skills today and we were matched really evenly."
