USICX: Trebon and van Gilder top standings

After five races last week, the United States International Cyclo-cross Calendar (USICX) standings are largely unchanged. There are new, hard-charging fifth-place riders trying to navigate to the top. The riders on Friday competed in the Darkhorse Cyclo-Stampede in Covington, Ky. On Saturday, the focus shifted to The Cycle-Smart International, for the first of two days of competition in Northampton, Mass., and Java Johnny's Lionhearts International before concluding Sunday with Harbin Park International in Fairfield, Ohio.

Ryan Trebon (Bend, Ore./LTS-Felt) finished first, second and third to maintain the lead in the USICX men's standings. Trebon placed third on Friday at Darkhorse Cyclo-Stampede before winning Saturday's Java Johnny's Lionhearts International. He capped his weekend as the runner-up to Jeremy Powers (Easthampton, Mass./Team Rapha-Focus) at Harbin Park. Powers collected two wins and a third-place finish to add 150 points to his total and claim sole possession of second place in the standings, 58 points behind Trebon.

Justin Lindine (New Salem, Mass./Bikereg.com-Joe's Garage) recorded 43 points after finishing fourth and sixth in the two Cycle-Smart International races to hold on to third place, 107 points behind Powers. Ben Berden (BEL/Ops Ale-Clement) trails Lindine by 41 points after finishing fourth at Java Johnny's and Harbin Park International after placing fifth at Darkhorse on Friday. James Driscoll (Winooski, Vt./Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld) is 111 points behind Berden despite collecting 80 points last week. Driscoll was the runner-up at Darkhorse before placing fifth at Java Johnny's and Harbin Park. Luke Keough (Sandwich, Mass./Champion System p/b Keough Cyclocross) won each of the Cycle-Smart races to help him move from 20th in last week's standings to seventh this week.

Katie Compton (Colorado Springs, Colo./Rabobank) won three races and Katerina Nash (CZE/Luna Pro Team) won two contests, but it wasn't enough to overtake the leader of the USICX women's standings, Laura van Gilder (Cresco, Pa./C3 p/b Mellow Mushroom). Van Gilder added 80 points to her total after placing second to Nash in each of the Cycle-Smart International races. Nash trimmed van Gilder's lead to only 28 points. Carolina Mani (FRA/CC etupes Doubes Pay) overtook Helen Wyman (GBR/Kona Factory Team) and rose into third place, 58 points behind Nash. Compton, who won Darkhorse, Java Johnny's and Harbin Park, is in fifth place, only 20 points behind Wyman.

JUNIORS

Two races last week tabulated junior men's results separately from elite men. Andrew Dillman (Fairdale, Ky./Red Zone Cycling) won each of them, adding 120 points to his lead atop the USICX junior standings. Curtis White (Delanson, N.Y./Clif Bar Development Cross Team), who was tied with Dillman in the previous junior standings following Granogue, added 55 points to his total and is in second place, 65 points back. Zane Godby (Louisville, Colo./Clif Bar Development Cross Team) held on to third place after finishing second to Dillman at Java Johnny's and Harbin Park. Richard Cypress Gorry (Payson, Ariz./Whole Athlete-Specialized) sits in fourth place, 40 points behind Godby and 40 points ahead of Stephen Bassett (Knoxville, Tenn./Bob's Red Mill Cx p/b Stevens Bikes and Carroll Composites), who rounds out the top five.
