The Junior Men 15-16 was the fifth title race on Saturday at the 2021 USA Cyclocross National Championships.

There were heavy winds in the morning, which meant the title races were postponed and the industry race was canceled.

The damage wasn’t severe, but it was enough to cause the title races to be postponed. The course and venues were both damaged.

Nats Bike: David Thompson’s Junior Men 9-10 Nationals-Winning Squid

In 2017 on home soil, Thompson defended his title.

At Cantigny Park, Thompson led wire-to-wire to claim the Junior Men’s 15-16 race. Thompson won 9 of his 13 races coming into Nationals, and was predicted to be second at Nationals.

With just two laps of racing (under 20 minutes), Thompson couldn’t afford to be patient with a title on the line.

Thompson had a smooth race, opening a gap over 40 seconds over second-placed and predicted winner Miles Mattern, winner of the 13-14 race at the 2019 Nationals.

The most-improved award goes to James Halverson who took bronze, a minute and a half in arrears but finished 20th in the 13-14 race in 2019.
