The only winner of the CrossVegas Elite Men’s race will be back in September to defend his title.  Two-time CrossVegas champion and current U.S. National Champion Ryan Trebon has confirmed he’ll line up September 23rd at the biggest cyclocross race in the U.S.  The Kona rider stated his intentions in Las Vegas, “I am really looking forward to beginning my season off on a good note, hopefully with continuing to the be the only person to ever win CrossVegas.”

Trebon won the 2008 edition of CrossVegas with a gutsy attack with a lap and half remaining on the tough Desert Breeze Soccer Complex course then soloed to victory.  In the first CrossVegas held in 2007 Trebon out kicked Swiss rider Christian Heule in the final sprint to the line.

The Bend, OR rider has had a great lead up to the approaching cross season with a strong mountain bike racing season that includes multiple top finishes.

Trebon noted, “Cross Vegas is a great race, I really enjoy racing in front of all the people that make our team and this great industry happen.”
