Fly V Australia rider eyeing overall title

Jonathan Cantwell's (Fly V Australia) win at the Boise Twilight criterium on Saturday propelled the Australian to third on the overall in the USA's National Racing Calendar rankings, eclipsing Frank Pipp (Bissell). The prolific sprinter also closed on current leader Francisco Mancebo (Realcyclist.com).

Fly V Australia dominated Boise, taking three of the top five positions. Ben Kersten (Fly V Australia) who won last year's race placed second behind Cantwell and now moves into the top 25 of the overall standings.

In the team's competition Bissell Pro Cycling has extended its lead over UnitedHealthcare courtesy of Frank Pipp's creditable sixth place in Boise. Bissell now have a 102 point advantage but there are still eight races left in the men's calendar and nothing is decided.

The next race for the men is the Cascade Cycling Classic which starts today in Bend, Oregon.

Women's rankings

The women's rankings remain unchanged since there was no event for them in Boise. Amber Neben (HTC-Highroad) and Colavita/Forno d'Asolo retain their positions atop the rankings. The women's peloton returns to racing, like the men, at the Cascade Cycling Classic.
