Just around the corner! Bend, OR host US Cyclocross!

Jonathan Page says it best, about US cyclo-cross Nationals

Jonathan Page (Planet Bike) returns home from his European cyclo-cross campaign well prepared. The big contest, the United States National cyclo-cross Championships will be held in Bend, Oregon on Sunday, December 13.

The Former Champion has the confidence and perhaps the form.

Page has won the US national cyclo-cross title on three occasions in 2002, 2003 and 2004. However, the prestigious jersey has eluded him in the last four years with victories distributed between rivals Todd Wells (2005), Tim Johnson (2007) and Ryan Trebon (2006, 2008).

"I have to think of Nationals as what it is; a one day event. Anything can happen."

Page said. "It's a lot of work and sacrifice and planning for me just to get over there and although I've done my best each year, I've been unable to win it for the last four years.

The same holds for the gals. Who is going to step up and have that great day! Racing is hard and to repeat, you have to be perfect! Everything has to come together on that given day!
