US champion Stephen Hyde took out his third victory of the season in the Cincy CX in Devou Park on Saturday, topping Aspire Racing teammates Spencer Petrov and Jeremy Powers by more than a minute in the wet, cold conditions.

"I was super pumped today. We've all been waiting for weather like this," said Hyde

Midway through the seven-lap race, Gage Hecht (Alpha Bicycle Company-Groove) and Curtis White (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com) slipped out of the front five. Hyde would put in a 30-second lead over Petrov, with another 30 seconds back to Powers, with Hecht and White trailing. With three laps to go, Hyde gained more time, while Powers began working his way back closer to his teammate.

"This course is great. It's fantastic," Hyde said after the race. "There is a lot of elevation, and it's a real cyclo-cross course. There's a lot of really good sections to it. On the back side, I really like the big run back there."

Hecht finished 2:48 back in fourth, and White was three minutes down for fifth. ProCX leader Ortenblad was not a factor in the race and finished 14th.

The ProCX competitions moves north of the Ohio River on Sunday for Cincy CX. UCI Category 2 races for Junior 17-18 Men, Elite Women and Elite Men will be held at T. William Harbin Park, in Fairfield, Ohio. Points will be awarded for both ProCX and the Sho-Air US Cup-CX Series.
