USICX: Status quo atop the USICX standings


There were a pair of sweeps on the United States International Cyclo-cross Calendar (USICX), last weekend. Ben Berden and Chloe Forsman climbed in the standings after winning both days of the North Carolina Grand Prix in Hendersonville, N.C., on Saturday and Sunday.

Despite Ben Berden (BEL/Ops Ale-Clement) winning both days of the North Carolina Grand Prix, Jeremy Powers (Easthampton, Mass./Team Rapha-Focus) remains the leader of the USICX men's standings. Ryan Trebon (Bend, Ore./LTS-Felt) sits in second place, 12 points behind Powers. Berden, who collected 120 points with the two wins, overtook Justin Lindine (New Salem, Mass./Bikereg.com-Joe's Garage) for third place, 111 points behind Trebon. Lindine trails Berden by 97 points in fourth place, but holds a 125-point cushion on Jamey Driscoll (Winooski, Vt./Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld).

Like the men's races, Chloe Forsman (Tucson, Ariz./Race Club 11) swept the two women's races in Hendersonville, N.C., collecting 120 points. The windfall moved Forsman from 19th into 10th in the USICX women's standings. Katerina Nash (CZE/Luna Pro Team) maintains her eight-point lead on Laura van Gilder (Cresco, Pa./C3 p/b Mellow Mushroom) for the top spot. Katie Compton (Colorado Springs, Colo./Rabobank) is charging hard in third place, but trails van Gilder by 62 points. Caroline Mani (FRA/CC Etupes Doubes Pay) sits in fourth place, 35 points behind Compton and 67 points ahead of Helen Wyman (GBR/Kona Factory Team).
