CX Pool Weekend Roundup

It was about this time last year when everything started to head south for Gary. After the US National Championships he had a lead of almost 1500 points over Bull City Cycling's cx wunderkid, Jay. But once the North American season came to a close, Jay began to chip away at that lead. In the end, he wound up beating Gary by almost 900 points to become champion of the 2009-10 FGBC CX Pool. Gary's lead is not nearly as big this year. But he managed to double it on this crucial weekend. Most significantly, he did so by winning the two races in Belgium, thanks largely to the performance of a resurgent Klaas Vantornout. There is still two months of racing to go. The fat lady has not even begun to warm up her vocal cords. In fact, she is still hovering over the backstage buffet. But at this point, it doesn't look like Gary is headed for another late season collapse.
