Katie Compton (Trek Cyclocross Collective) continued her unbeaten streak in the 2012-2013 'cross season with a dominating performance in the second day of racing at the Trek US Gran Prix of Cyclocross (USGP) in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The eight-time US 'cross champion soloed to victory with a 1:08 margin over hometown Olympian Georgia Gould (Luna Pro Team), who finished as runner-up to Compton for the second straight day. Gould was locked in a battle for second place with Julie Krasniak (Rapha Focus), but separated herself from the Frenchwoman late in the contest and finished 11 seconds ahead.

Reigning U23 national champion Kaitlin Antonneau (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld) claimed fourth, 1:52 behind her coach and mentor Katie Compton, followed by Canada's Pepper Harlton (Juventus Cycling Club) in fifth.

After Andrea Smith (LadiesFirst Racing) claimed the hole-shot, a group of approximately 10 riders formed at the head of affairs. That group was soon whittled down to four and contained Compton, Gould, Krasniak and Nicole Duke (Raleigh-Clement).

Compton took matters into her own hands and launched an attack which quickly began to grow with three laps remaining. Gould and Krasniak remained together in the race for second while Antonneau bridged to Duke in the duel for fourth place honours.

Compton rode flawlessly to secure the victory while Gould separated herself from Krasniak for another second place finish.
