Wells upsets Page, Robinson and Metzger repeat

Todd Wells has won his 2nd Elite Men's Cyclocross Nationals over Ryan Trebon and Jonathan Page in very sloppy conditions. The three riders rode together for the first 30 minutes or so before Wells got a gap in the messy stuff and opened it up. Trebon put up a valiant chase, nearly catching Wells on the final lap, but it was too little, too late. Page faded away towards the end. No Nor-cal riders are in the preliminary top 10, but we did secure two titles this morning.

Earlier in the day Justin Robinson (Cal Giant) successfully defended his Masters 30-34 title over a very strong field of riders. Melodie Metzger (Velo Bella) was victorious in the Women's Collegiate race, bringing home that jersey for the second year in a row. Congratulations, guys!

Great to see Nor-cal riders are such a strong showing in national cross events, every year. Yeah Girl! Congrats to Melodie Metzger
