We have plenty to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving holiday, and hope you do as well. Cyclocross stars Stephen Hyde, Caroline Mani, and Gage Hecht all have a bit more to be thankful for this year, as all three are currently leading their categories in USA Cycling’s PRO CX rankings.
Crystal Anthony (Beverly, Mass./Boulder Cycle Sport-Yogaglo) and Cameron Beard (Bend, Ore./Cyclocrossworld.com Devo) also have something to be thankful for, as both are on the move in the elite women’s and junior men’s standings after Anthony took two wins at the Nov. 21-22 Supercross Cup in Stony Point, N.Y., and Beard swept the Nov. 21-22 CXLA Weekend Long Beach Edition! races in Los Angeles.
Anthony is second in the women’s standings with 557 points behind Caroline Mani’s (Littleton, Calif./Raleigh-Clement) 663 points, and Beard’s 182 points stands second in the junior men’s standings behind Gage Hecht’s (Parker, Colo./Alpha Bicycle Co.-Vista Subaru) 195. Stephen Hyde (Easthampton, Mass./Cannondale p/b cyclorossworld.com) leads the elite men’s standings with 619 points.
