The Masters Men 40-44 was the first age group title race during Day 2 of the 2021 USA Cyclocross National Championships title racing.

In Illinois, 29 racers took to the start, compared to 48 in 2019.

Former cyclocross pro Jake Wells is on an impressive Nationals streak. He has won six-straight National Championships—four Masters and two Singlespeed—and today defended his 2019 Lakewood Cyclocross Nationals Masters 40-44 title.

Wells also won the Masters race at the Pan American Continental Cyclocross Championships.

Corey Stelljes was the runner up and Jordan Snyder finished third.

The race was held in cloudy conditions with temps in the low 40s.
