2010 USGP Finale in Portland, OR. Will Gould take series?

Go to and watch live!!!

The conditions are a perfect for the huge weekend of cross! WN has three gals to keep an eye on, Georgia Gould, Sue Butler, Amanda Carey.

The Finale. Where better to finish up the USGP season than in Portland, OR - home to some of the top athletes in the sport and always epic conditions. We've raced in hurricanes, freezing fog, brilliant sunshine and torrential rain - often on the same day! But if we know one thing it's this - Sunday brings out the best in everybody. Year in and year out, Portland offers up the crowds of afficianados the conditions and level of racing that people expect from the sport of 'cross and provides a true test to the amateur and pro athlete alike. This year, the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships are in Bend one week following Portland - we can already feel the excitement building for the biggest weekend of 'cross we've seen to date.

On the women's side, Georgia Gould (WN Luna) looks like a safe bet to take home her 2nd career USGP title. The Luna rider leads Katie Compton by 58 points, but the US champion Compton will be taking the weekend off to rest up for her title defence. In third, Meredith Miller is a distant 79 points behind, and as long as Gould stays in the top 10 her series win will be secure.
