Katie Compton has won World Cup Round 8 in Roubaix, France. I watched the video on cycling.tv and was thoroughly impressed with the course. A great mix of mud and pavement. Compton stormed from slow start to overtake Hanka K. Velonews reports that Compton is going to skip the last World Cup to focus on Worlds. I think she is going to win. If the course is muddy she'll for sure win. On the junior side Bainbridge Island's Zach McDonald is super hot right now. He's a great pick for the podium at Worlds. Zach snatched third at the World Cup in Roubaix. Tree Farm, Page, and Powers didn't look super hot this weekend, but hopefully their form will turn for Worlds. I haven't heard yet if Page is racing?
If you haven't gotten your fill of cyclocross check out cycling.tv's coverage....excellent. Anthony and Brian are my heros. Also, there showing the Tour Down Under (also seen daily on Versus). Speaking of the TDU. Ole Robbie never gets tired of winning. Don't ever count out Robbie in the last 50 meters of a sprint. He's still got it!
Me weekend consisted of skiing on Saturday and riding on Sunday. It was great to get out of the Missoula fog. Here's a couple photos from the weekend. Photos by Tamara
