State Championships/Katie Compton

The weather is still calling for a rain/snow mix on Sunday. With the polls closing Phil and John end in a dead tie with 9 votes each. The people's champion's have been decided. Who will take the prize??? I hope everyone in town is planning on watching. Mike Beltz is doing a great job promoting the race.

Katie Compton won the first ever World Cup by an American. She beat the competition by 45 seconds, and grabbed the most important victory in US Cross history. Check out cyclingnews or velonews for more information.

I would disagree about Katie's victory being the most important. The most important win ever for US Cyclocross (IMHO) is when Matt Kelly won worlds in 1999 at Poprad. I think Tim Johnson was on the podium for the elites too. A world cup is great but Matt Kelly's ride was amazing.

People seem to forget about Poprad and what it meant to American most US cross racers Poprad is a bike made by LeMond.

Once again...just my opinion.
