Katerina Nash (Luna Pro) has become relentless as she hit her cyclocross season in full swing, taking a six in a row victory at Jingle Cross. Caroline Mani (Raleigh-Clement) and Courtenay McFadden (GE-American Classic) finished behind in second and third, respectively. McFadden, the leading American rider on the day, has been building her case as one of the top riders in the nation, and will surely continue to push herself to contend for the world’s team.

Meredith Miller (Noosa) was the second American finisher, taking fifth on the day behind Maghalie Rochette (Luna Pro), and has built up an astonishing resume as she has done in years past.

Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus) took charge of the C1 races on the Pro CX Calendar once again yesterday, battling cold temperatures and snowfall to stand atop the podium of the Men’s Elite Race. Stephen Hyde (JAM Fund) came in a half minute later for second place, while young and up-and-coming road and cyclocross cyclist Logan Owen (Cal-Giant) rode in for third.

Yesterday’s winner, Ben Berden (Raleigh-Celemant), was able to take seventh, while his teammate, Jamey Driscoll, stormed behind the leaders for fourth.

Danny Summerhill, winner of both days of Derby City Cup last weekend, was notably absent. He mentioned that he would be focusing on preparation for the road season ahead, and will likely be away from the cyclocross scene until Nationals in Austin, TX.
