After Katie Compton’s second-straight win at the Cincy3 UCI three-day cyclocross race and festival, Ohio racer Taylor Kruse caught up with the American national champion after her race, along with the French national champion, Caroline Mani, who finished in second place, for a quick interview.  Mani is racing her last weekend in the States as her SRAM internship is ending, but tells Cyclocross Magazine that she not only is sad to return back to Europe, but hopes to race a full season in the States for the 2012/2013 cyclocross season.
