Cyclocross Natz predictionsjjohnson05

Who is going to be on the podium in the Elite men's race in Napa? Will Gully and Wells walk away with it? Can Jon Paige turn a win in Belgium into a win in California? Do last years upgraded Espoirs Jackson Stewart (2nd at Natz 2001) and Tyler Johnson (3rd at Natz 2001) stand a chance of making the podium as seniors? Who are you picking?

gully is going to win it and wells second. the podium with round out with paige, and my 2 longshots that need the result in cross are t brown and sundt

the espoirs arn't going to be there, but maybe justine robinson could be the local spoiler for a podium spot?

I don't know, Paige has been competing at a whole 'nother level in Belgium so watch out. Down here in SoCal we have a Danish womens rider who is showing what Euro cross is all about. They race Mens B's and womens Elites at the same time and she usually finishes top 5 overall (and she may be starting a minute later, I haven't been at the line but I assume they release them 1 minute later)
Carmen placed 3rd in the B menSabine

She's my pick to win the women's race.

he hasn't raced lately but he's FAST ! Page could be the outside chance but he hasn't had the form in the US to beat Gully or Wells.

My top 5 would be:

Wells
Gully
Huseby
Johnson
McCormack

and...

D'Aluisio
Dunlap (is she racing?)
McConneloug
Hall
Bessette

Would that be Tim or Tyler? Tim hasn't been racing, but Tyler beat McCormack in a UCI race last weekend in RI and was just 16 seconds behind Huesby who won.
Tim, although Tyler is racing well.climbo

he has a chance at top 5 but I don't think he'll get it. Huseby and co. blew him away at Chainbiter but you never know. He should buy a new car if he wins, we had to jump start his van after that race.
Dunlap out, so Lloyd goes to #5climbo

and the others all move up one spot.

It will be intersting to see how Frishy goes this weekend in the warm up races. Should be great to see him duke it out with the top US guys.

Would Mongoose break up the Hudson Valley boys, or are Gully and Wells both being dropped?

regardless of what he's done here, watch for him. he's doing okay in Europe.
