There were a pair of competitions on the USA Cycling Professional Cyclo-cross Calendar (Pro CX) over the weekend. Riders pursued Pro CX standings points at the NEPCX Gran Prix of Gloucester 1 and 2 on Saturday and Sunday in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Jeremy Powers (Easthampton, Mass./Rapha-Focus) swept the two races in Massachusetts to collect 70 points and expand his lead in the Pro CX men’s standings to 29 points. Timothy Johnson (Topsfield, Mass./Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com) finished second on Saturday and third on Sunday to add 56 points and bring his season-long total to 219 points. Ryan Trebon (Bend, Ore./Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com), who recorded a pair of top-five results, including placing second on Sunday, moved up one spot in the standings into second place with 199 points. Stephen Hyde (Edgartown, Mass./JAM Fund-NCC) slipped down one spot into fourth place with 190 points. Ben Berden (BEL/Raleigh-Clement) dropped into fifth place of the standings with 157 points.

Elle Anderson (San Francisco, Calif./California Giant Berry Farms-Specialized) swept the two women’s races in Gloucester to collect 70 points and move into third place in the Pro CX women’s standings with 182 points. Anderson trails the standings leader, Gabriella Durrin (née Day) (GBR/Rapha-Focus), by 37 points and is only 11 points out of second place, which is held by Helen Wyman (GBR/Kona Factory Racing). Meredith Miller (Boulder, Colo./California Giant Berry Farms-Specialized) moved up one spot in the standings into fourth place with 168 points, only 14 points behind Anderson and nine ahead of Crystal Anthony (Beverly, Mass./Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies).
