Trebon gives up U.S. cyclocross team spot

Kona rider Ryan Trebon has declined his place in the U.S. team for the Cyclocross World Championships in Zeddam, Netherlands, January 29. Citing personal reasons, Trebon made a sudden trip back to the U.S. this week and says he would not be able to return until Wednesday of next week; only two days before Saturday's Worlds. "At this point," he said by phone on Thursday, "that's not a lot of time to get ready. Besides, my heart and head wouldn't be in it so it's better that someone who's ready to go take my spot."

Trebon will be replaced by Jonathan Baker (Primus Mootry Cyclocross Team) who was tenth at the US Cyclocross Championships in December. Baker says he has been preparing diligently for this eventuality and is ready to show he is deserving of the chance to race with the world's best.
