5 world titles earned by Americans on day 3 of Masters CX Worlds – USA Cycling

Louisville, Ky. (January 14, 2012) —Americans took five of six possible rainbow jerseys Saturday on the third day of racing at the 2012 UCI Masters Cyclo-cross World Championships.

The morning began with the women’s 30-34 race, where Rebecca Gross (Lakewood, Colo./Tough Girl) outrode Alyssa Severn (Madison, Wis./Cylocrossracing.com) for the gold. Andrea Wilson (Cordova, Tenn./Outdoors, Inc.) followed Severn to the line to score a bronze.

Canadian Lyne Bessette took victory in the women’s 35-39 race, beating Kristin Weber (Boulder, Colo./Boulder Cycle Sport) and Lisa Hudson (Golden, Colo./Feedback Sports), who finished second and third respectively.

Men’s Races

In the first men’s race of the day, Stephen Tilford (Topeka, Kansas / Tradewind Energy/Eriksen Cycles) earned victory in the men’s 50-54 contest while Kevin Hines (East Wareham, Minn./Corner Cycle) took silver, a repeat of the duo’s one/two podium finish at the recent USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships. Gunnar Shogren (Morgantown, W.Va./Team Pathfinder of WV) finished close behind Hines to claim third.

Donald Myrah (San Jose, Calif./ Ibis/Buy-Cell.com), the current men’s 45-49 cyclo-cross national champion, added another jersey to his closet after he bested the rest of the 45-49 field by more than a minute and a half. Belgium’s Erik Teck rode to a second-place finish just ahead of Gannon Myall (Lafayette, Calif./ California Giant Strawberry/Specialized).

It was a thrilling finish to the men’s 40-44 race, where the top two steps of the Cyclo-cross Nationals podium traded spots when Peter Webber (Boulder, Colo./Boulder Cycle Sport) edged teammate and reigning national champ Brandon Dwight (Boulder, Colo./Boulder Cycle Sport) for the rainbow jersey. Mark Savery (Omaha, Neb./ Trek Midwest CX/MWCC) earned the bronze.

The men’s 35-39 competition provided another close finish as Scott Frederick (Raleigh, N.C./Inland Construction) reached the line just three seconds ahead of runner-up Christopher Case (Golden, Colo./Feedback Sports). Craig Faulkner (Mendota Heights, Minn./Crossniacs) took the third step on the podium.

The final day of racing begins Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. with the women’s 50-54 age group final.
