LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Bend’s Ryan Trebon did not finish Saturday in his men’s elite race at the 2013 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships.
The 31-year-old Cannondale-Clement rider was one of six Americans in the race, which was originally scheduled for today but was moved to Saturday because of projected high water in the Ohio River and possible flooding at Eva Bandman Park, site of the competition. Trebon said he crashed with two laps remaining and injured his back, wrist and elbow, but did not break any bones.
Sven Nys of Belgium won the men’s elite race by two seconds over fellow Belgium rider Klaas Vantornout. Nys posted a time of 1 hour, 5 minutes, 35 seconds over the 2.8-kilometer circuit course; Vantornout finished in 1:05:37. The top American finisher was Timothy Johnson, 19th in 1:08:55.
In three other world championship races Saturday, the top spot on the podium went to riders from the Netherlands.
Marianne Vos won the women’s elite race in 43:00, followed by American Katherine Compton (44:34).
In the U23 men’s division, Mike Teunissen was first with a time of 48:40. Belgium’s Wietse Bosmans was second (48:54), and Zach McDonald was the top American finisher, 11th overall (50:22).
In the men’s junior division, Mathieu Van Der Poel finished first with a time of 40:47, and Dutch countryman Martijn Budding was second (41:44). The first American was Logan Owen, who was fourth overall (42:10).
