Compton wins, Gould takes third in World Cup in Nommay, France!

American women have nothing to be concerned about their racing skills and how they stack-up in the world.  While on the World Cup in Nommay, France Katie Compton took her second win in a role on the World Cup and by almost 19 seconds, just ahead of World Champion German Hanka Kupfernagel and Georgia Gould finished a very respectful third only 5 seconds back of World Champ Kupfernagel.  That's a very real statement!

Given the long trips, jet lag, the long trips are very taxing on your legs.  I know, I just did a "red-eye" back to the mainland from Hawaii.  A little snowshoe time in fresh snow on steep trails seems to be helping!  Plus, Aleive afterwords!  Ha!  It's good to be young!

This was Georgia's cyclo-cross World Cup of the season.  She got stuck in a pack of chasers, but soon left them for the lead duo.  We are so pleased for the American gals.


1. Katie Compton         USA                   40.27
2 Hanka Kupfernagel  Ger                      0.19
3. Georgia Gould         USA                     0.24
