The weekend's elite men's winners, Ryan Trebon (Kona) and Mark McCormack (Clif Bar), are separated by a scant 10 points in the series standings. Trebon's Kona teammate, Barry Wicks, rests in third in series points and also leads the FOCUS First-Lap Competition. Wicks, fourth place Tim Johnson ( Garneau), and fifth place Adam Craig (Giant) are all within 10 points of each other in the standings.

Defending Under-23 National and US Gran Prix Champion Jesse Anthony (Clif Bar) maintains a healthy lead in the U-23 category. In the tightest category so far, Bjorn Selander (Alan Factory) and Alex Howes (TIAA-CREF) exit the first weekend tied for the series lead in the Junior Men. Selander and Howes swapped wins in Tacoma and Portland, respectively, with each finishing third in the race the other won. But, Selander leads the Junior FOCUS First-Lap Competition.

The 2005 Crank Brothers US Gran Prix continues October 29-30 with the Michelob ULTRA Grand Prix of Cyclocross from Stage Fort Park, Gloucester, Mass.
