I think this the first time I've seen an American get a really decent result in a European cross race.

Page finished 6th in the race today in Ardooie, Belgium. Not all the top guys were there but nonetheless Page finished in front of Vervecken and Vanthourenhout and out paced the usual also-rans that he usually finishes with.

Think the key may just be that you have to live and race with the Europeans to be as good/better than they are??

Hmmm, go figure!

whole 'nother level. Page went the small fish big pond to improve on an international level. It's why I predicted the Nat Title last year. The guys who stay domestic never have anything to measure against. They get the Big Fish small pond syndrome and then get schooled across the pond.

I know John Page from high school (not really well), but he's been an awesome rider since day one... Really nice guy too. He'd often help my crappie ass up a hill or two.

He deserves as much success as he's got and more...

Hopefully he will land on a strong road team with the Prime Alliance implosion.
