Vincent remains leader of junior men's standings

Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus) and Elle Anderson (Cal Giant Berry Farms-Specialized) continue to lead the USA Cycling Professional Cyclo-cross Calendar (Pro CX) following a three-day stint in Iowa City, Iowa for the Jingle Cross Rock races on November 15-17.

After winning the C2 events on Friday and Saturday and placing second in the C1 event on Sunday, Jeremy Powers collected 160 points over the weekend and increased his season tally to 811. Ben Berden (Raleigh-Clement) placed second on both Friday and Saturday followed by a third place finish on Sunday in Iowa to remain in second place overall at 769 points, but Powers has been steadily increasing his points advantage in recent weeks and now leads the Belgian by 42 points. Tim Johnson (Cannondale p/b, winner of Sunday's C1 race in Iowa, earned 128 points this weekend and moved into third place with 712 points. Johnson's teammate Ryan Trebon dropped from third to fourth as he was sidelined by an illness this past weekend and was unable to add any points to his season tally of 606. The top five for the elite men is rounded out by Berden's teammate Jamey Driscoll who had a strong weekend in Iowa with third, fifth and sixth place finishes to boost his points total to 406.

Katerina Nash swept all three elite women's races at Jingle Cross Rock and collected a total of 175 points for the weekend. With 580 points overall, she moved from fifth into third place in the rankings and is now within 90 points of Pro CX leader Elle Anderson who earned 116 points over the weekend after placing second in Sunday's C1 event and third in Saturday's C2 event. Anderson's total of 670 points kept her in the top spot ahead of teammate Meredith Miller who retained her second-place position in the standings after placing third on Friday and Sunday and fifth on Saturday. Fourth place is still occupied by Crystal Anthony (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) with 502 points while Katie Compton (Trek Cyclocross Collective), who had travelled to Europe after sweeping the previous weekend's races in Louisville, Kentucky, will not contest any more Pro CX events this season and has dropped from third to fifth at 453 points.

There were no UCI-sanctioned junior men's races over the weekend so their standings remain unchanged with Austin Vincent (Race CF | @racecf) on top at 345 points.
