Zipp Pros Primed for US CX Nats

Zipp is proud to support a power-packed roster of elite and pro racers at this week’s USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships in Boulder, Colo. After several months of mud, sand, snow and intense competition, the U.S. cyclocross season comes down to the battle for the stars and stripes – CX Nats.

And Zipp athletes are ready. Veterans Tim Johnson and Ryan Trebon of the Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com team and Danny Summerhill of K-Edge / Felt are among the top contenders in the elite men’s race Sunday. Saturday’s U23 Men’s Championship will be hotly contested by SRAM athletes including Logan Owen and Yannick Eckmann of California Giant Berry-Specialized and Curtis White of Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com. These athletes also will be looking for high placings in the men’s elite race.

In the Elite Women’s Championship, ski-racer-turned-cyclist Elle Anderson of the California Giant Berry-Specialized shot straight to the top of U.S. cyclocross circuit this year, clinching the women’s title for the USA Cycling Professional Women’s Cyclocross Calendar. Other top contenders include Meredith Miller of Cal Giant-Specialized and, for the elite and U23 divisions, Kaitie Antonneau of Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com. Also watch for Nicole Duke of Marin / Spy Optics to contend for a high placing.

The Zipp 303 Firecrest Disc-brake and 303 Firecrest wheelsets have been the go-to wheels for cyclocross this season, delivering superior durability, stability and aerodynamic efficiency. These athletes also rely on Zipp’s pro proven Service Course SL bars, stems and seatposts to achieve a proper fit and efficient position for the technical courses they confront throughout the season.
