The second annual Pan American Continental Cyclo-cross Championships wrapped up on Sunday where riders from the United States swept up victories on all five podiums, and to no surprise considering the nation was the most represented at the event held at Devou Park in Covington, Kentucky.
Katie Compton (Trek Factory Racing) won her second consecutive title, having won her first at last year's inaugural event, riding in for a solo victory in the elite women's race ahead of Kaitlin Antonneau (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld) and Rachel Lloyd (Calgiant).
Ellen Noble (Jam-NCC-Vittoria) won the U23 women's title ahead of Allison Arensman (Twenty16 p/b Sho-Air) and Hannah Finchamp (Luna Pro Team), while Andrew DIllman won the U23 men's event ahead of Curtis White (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld) and Tobin Ortenblad (CalGiant).
Spencer Petrov (Cyclocross Network Racing) won the junior title, a huge improvement to his fourth place last year, this time riding away from the field to win by a large margin. Last year's winner Gage Hecht (Alpha Bicycle Co) placed second and Eric Brunner (Boulder Cycle Sport) was third.
New to the championships event this year was the addition of an elite men's race won by Jeremy Powers (Rapha). Powers rode away from the field and took a solo win by only eight seconds ahead of Jamey Driscoll (Raleigh Clement) and Stephen Hyde (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld).
