Three Cheers for Johnathan Page, who took Silver today in the Cyclocross World Championships, missing out on the rainbow jersey due to a slip in a corner near the end, with Erwin Vervecken slipping past to take the win.
Shouts also for Katie Compton, who rides Women's Elite and from time to time Men's B (at the front) here in MABRA. She picked up silver in the women's competition.
Two Americans on the podiums at the worlds?
Okay, somebody better go check on Belgium. Make sure they're okay and all, and able to pick themselves up off the floor.
Meanwhile, I've got a new 'cross rider to root for. Daphny van den Brand. But it's only 'cuz she's so damn good on the bike, and took 4th at World's...
