Jay Captures the Castle Bridge

It was about this time last year that the Secretary started whining about the relative stability of the FGBC CX Pool. It is true that vicarious cx racing is quite a bit more predictable than, say, the mercurial Spring Classics Pool. But Jay and Dan proved that it's still possible to make some major gains in the CX Pool. Jay moved up seven spots and into 5th overall today on the strength of a 970 point display of domination at the World Cup race in Pont-Ch√Ęteau. Only Prince Dan, King of the Deep End managed to stay close. He had 905 points and displaced Olli from third place overall. Today's podium was rounded out by we heart King Andy. He had 685 points and moved into the top 10 overall. On the less fortunate end of the spectrum was Jonah. He had a stinker of a race, finishing last with 120 points. He fell almost as many spots as Jay gained, dropping from 6th all the way to 12th overall. Ouch.

Full results and overall standings here.

The World Cup series wraps up next weekend in Hoogerheide. And then it's the World Championships. That means some big numbers are up for grabs before the last handful of races in February. Nice to see TJ within spitting distance of the top 10. But where was Page?
