Throwdown Thrilla: Trebon, Sheppard & Page Battle in Bend
Ryan Trebon (Kona) and Jonathan Page (Planet Bike) are getting their bodies used to weekday evening racing in preparation for CrossVegas. The pair battled last week in Bend, Ore. Report below.
BEND, Ore. — Some of the nation’s top cyclocrossers got a chance to go head-to-head a little early this year as National Champion and Bend resident Ryan Trebon faced off against visiting Jonathan Page, a former silver medalist in the world championships, and Bend mountain bike pro Chris Sheppard. Trebon (Kona) came out on top, covering 9 laps of the course made up of Bend’s infamous high desert dust. Page (Planet Bike) reportedly crashed hard and settled for third behind Sheppard (Rebound Physio/Santa Cruz Bicycles).
In the Women’s race, Serena Bishop (Sunnyside Sports) bested teammates Julie Wose and Suzanne King.
