LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Day two of the Mudfund Derby City Cup ran under sunny skies and offered yet another thrilling day of racing in the 2013 World Championship venue.

Road-racing standout Amanda Miller (Tibco/To the Top) charged off the line to take the hole shot. Katie Compton (Trek Cyclocross Collective) put in another patented attack on the second half of the first lap and, like Saturday, never looked back.

Elle Anderson (Cal Giant Berry Farm) had a tremendous race – never allowing Compton to gain more than a 20 second advantage. Anderson and her teammate Meredith Miller worked hard together for much of the race before Anderson ultimately gapped Miller who finished a strong third.

Behind them Miller, Crystal Anthony (Optum p/b Kelly Benefits) and Nicole Duke (Marin/Spy) traded blows before Miller ultimately faded back to finish sixth behind Anthony and Duke.

Day two of the men’s race got off to a significantly different start than day one. Today’s story was a tale of six. Ben Berden (Raleigh Clement) started the battle to take an early lead. Very quickly a group of four formed with Danny Summerhill (FELT/K-Edge), Ryan Trebon (Cannondale p/b CyclocrossWorld.com) and  Adam Craig (GIANT Factory Off-Road Team) joining the lead group.

Notably absent from the lead group were Jeremy Powers (Rapha FOCUS) and Tim Johnson (Cannondale p/b CyclocrossWorld.com). As the four leaders battled, Johnson surged closer and closer to the leaders. With a lap and half to go, Powers, with the help of teammate Zack McDonald, joined Johnson and the two together finally made contact with the leaders.

From that point the race got tactical and the attacks came fast and furious. Every rider spent some time on the front as attack after attack was launched. With just a few turns remaining, Trebon looked unstoppable when disaster struck and he washed out in an off-camber corner and relinquished the lead to Powers. Powers held off the charging field to claim the top step. Berden, who was clearly inspired today finished second and Summerhill was third.
