Powers, Durrin continue to lead USAC Pro CX standings

Anderson up to 3rd in women's standings after sweep in Gloucester

Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus) and Gabriella Durrin (Rapha-Focus) remain in the lead of the USA Cycling Professional Cyclo-cross Calendar (Pro CX) after the season-long series continued this past weekend with two days of racing at the Shimano NEPCX-Gran Prix of Gloucester in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Powers swept both days of racing, each a UCI C2-ranked event, to bring his season points total to 248 and increase his lead over Tim Johnson (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com) by 29 points. Johnson finished second on Saturday and third on Sunday, earning 56 points for his efforts, and now has 219 points thus far this season.

Johnson's teammate Ryan Trebon moved from fourth to third after a pair of top-five finishes in Gloucester which brings his points total to 199. Stephen Hyde (JAM Fund-NCC) drops from third to fourth overall with 190 points followed by Ben Berden (Raleigh-Clement) in fifth overall with 157 points.

Elle Anderson (Cal Giant Berry Farms-Specialized) swept the women's races in Gloucester and the 70 points earned for her pair of victories moved her into third overall at 182 points. Gabriella Durrin continues to lead overall, however, as her second and fourth place results boosted her series total to 242 points. European champion Helen Wyman (Kona), fourth then second this weekend, remains in second overall with 193 points.

Meredith Miller (Cal Giant Berry Farms-Specialized) and Crystal Anthony (Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) round out the top five of the women's standings with 168 and 159 points respectively.

The next stop on the Pro CX series will be this coming weekend, October 5-6, with two days of racing at the Providence Cyclo-cross Festival in Providence, Rhode Island. Saturday's racing will be the second C1-ranked event of the season in the US and the weekend also marks the first events of the Junior men's Pro CX series.

After the Pro CX's conclusion at the Kingsport Cyclo-cross Cup in Kingsport, Tennessee on January 5, 2014, a $40,000 purse will be split equally among the top 20 overall men's and women's finishers in the series.
