A cold and windy day in Portland set the stage for Jonathan Page to ride away with his third consecutive national cyclo-cross title. But not before a serious challenge from home state Oregon rider Ryan Trebon who laid down the gauntlet midway through the race to make it hard for the favourite.

Page, who pulled away from the field in the first lap, used his strong legs to master the wind and the mud this afternoon. Early in the race, Ryan Trebon (Corvallis, Ore.), teammate Barry Wicks (Corvallis, Ore.), Todd Wells (Durango, Colo.), Marc Gullickson (Boulder, Colo.), and Mark McCormack (Foxboro, Mass.) were among the elite group of chasers. Trebon became the man to make the race interesting as he broke away from the other chasers and went in pursuit of the defending champion. After a few laps of hard chasing, Trebon was able to catch the leader. "It took me a while to find my rythm," he told announcers later. "On this course, you're on the gas the whole time. There's no recovery."

With two laps to go, Page attacked and opened up another gap on the tall racer from Oregon. This time, he stayed away until he rode off with the victory. Trebon improved upon his 2003 bronze medal performance by finishing in second, while Todd Wells took bronze and Barry Wicks secured fourth. In what would be his final race before retirement, Marc Gullickson came back from as far back as 16th position early in the race to within seconds of catching Wicks and Wells. Not quite making it to the battle for third place, Gullickson claimed the final spot on the podium taking fifth place.
