The team is looking very strong this past weekend leading into this coming weekend’s rounds 5 and 6 of the US Gran Prix of Cyclocross series at the Derby City Cup in Louisville, KY. Jeremy Powers did the three days out in Cincinnati, OH at the Cincy3 Cyclocross Festival. Leading the charge against one of Jeremy’s top rivals this season, Ryan Trebon. Jeremy walked away with a pair of wins, including a muddy and hilly first day that Ryan was actually tipped as the favorite for. Zach McDonald also joined Jeremy in Cincinnati on Sunday, and the pair went to work with one goal in mind, to win. Not only did they win, but Zach took his highest ever UCI C1 finish of his career with a third place finish just behind his winning teammate, Jeremy, and Ryan.

Meanwhile on the West Coast, Julie Krasniak took the win at Cross Crusade #7. Speaking of 7, Julie is also ranked 7th in the Women’s Rankings on the cyclingdirt.org Who’s #1 for this week!

On the men’s side, Colt has Jeremy continuing his streak at Number 1, Zach in 10th, and Chris in 16th. Chris Jones will be coming back this weekend, to join the full team in Louisville, KY. This has been a fantastic run up for the team to rounds 5 and 6 of largest North American cyclocross series.

Bluegrass State, here we come!
