USA Cycling’s race predictor had Tim Allen as the favorite for the 2014 Cyclocross National Championship singlespeed race.

“I was going for it, for sure,” Allen says. “When I got a gap, I was really excited. I got lucky.”

There’s more than just luck involved in winning a national championships, and one of Allen’s advantages might have been his relatively low 36×17 gear combination (the same gear combo as Ellen Noble) on the muddy, relatively technical course. “Spin it to win it, ” says Allen about his low gear.
