Luna's Georgia Gould proved her sweep in the New Jersey round of the USGP was no fluke as she powered away from the field to take consecutive victories in Portland's series finale. US Champion Katie Compton and Canadian Lyne Bessette, both of whom were fighting illness after their trip to Europe, struggled in the mud on Saturday, finishing second and fourth, respectively, then both abandoned in the horrific conditions on Sunday.
The filthy weather proved beneficial to the experienced mountain bikers, who topped the results lists both days. Gould, and her team-mate Katerina Nash and veteran off-roader Alison Sydor were first, third and fifth on Saturday and 1-2-3 on Sunday.
With her wins in Portland, Gould earned both the series title and an automatic selection to the USA's team for the Cyclo-cross World Championships in Treviso.
