Jonathan Page Wins Jonthan Page Planet Bike Cup

Page, Elliott take opening day in Wisconsin UCI Cyclocross Weekend

by Renee Callaway

On Saturday at Jonathan Page’s Planet Bike Cup the elite men’s race turned into a one-man show after Todd Wells (GT) had to make two stops in the pit and chase back from deep in the field after a rolled tire. Jonathan Baker (Vitamin Cottage) was chasing Page but after slicing open his ankle he was forced out of the race. The race behind Page between Michael Mueller (Planet Bike), Bjorn Selander (Ridley) and Troy Wells (Clif Bar) was action filled as each launched attacks. In the end Mueller’s attack on the last climb was decisive and he took 2nd with Selander 3rd and Troy Wells 4th . Todd Wells (GT) fought back throughout the race working his way through the large field to grab 5th place.

The women’s field at Jonathan Page’s Planet Bike Cup was filled with most of the Midwest’s top cyclocross racers but Canadian Natasha Elliott (EMD Serono/Stevens) was carving the turns and accelerating up the climbs and rode away solo for the victory. Sarah Kerlin (HRS/Rock Lobster) finished second. Illinois’Devon Haskell (Pony Shop) was the top Midwestern finisher but 17-18 National Champion Anna Young (Planet Bike) was just seconds behind. Kathy Sherwin (Velo Bella-Kona) rounded out the top 5.

Racing continues on Sunday at Angell Park with Day Two of Jonathan Page’s Planet Bike Cup, sponsored in part by Cyclocross Magazine.
