I have been wondering myself. I contacted cyclocross world and they didn't know either.
This link takes you to a photo of the French Team Truck. The silver Alan I think is Laurence Lebouchers' ride but am not sure. She rode MTB for GT for a while before they went belly up.

It's funny at their web site , Alans,there are no bikes with that carbon rear stay with the single tube comming from the seat tube joining the seat stays. They do have a road bike that does look like that though, I wonder if it's a modified road bike?

Actually just looked at some more pictures, all of her bikes had black tape, that one has orange. I don't think that was her bike. I sure would like to know though. I like that rear stay set up.

That photo was from a different race so I guessed she may have had a tape change. If the stay is different, I had not noticed. Single stay splitting into 2 sounds like a Colnago or Pinarello but 1 logo is visible and it doesn't look like either. Maybe a custom Gitane as they o some of that B-Stay looking stuff. I checked your photos, nice track. Oh the joys of country roads. I live in a city (San Diego) where we lack those roads and the weather. Still some great x riding.

There's a good photo on Velonews and I still can't make it out.
This is driving me nuts.

and it appears she's using Kryssiums as well, which answers that other guys question. Though she only weighs 125 lbs soaking wet.
Some of the Low Spoke wheels are pretty stiff as they compensate with a wider profile rim. I run Rolf Vectors on my road bike and have little problem (I'm 6'4.5 "23o lbs) with flex. I do flex their Sestieres though (Demo'd them on the road), the Vector Comps would work for cross on just about anybody. I'd rather buy 2 sets of open pro's for the money.
