Another week of cross action is in the books. What a weekend it was. With most of the big guns out West, several riders seized the opportunity in New York City and picked up valuable UCI points. On the West Coast, the Cannondale/Cyclocrossworld.com dominated the action as Tim Johnson made sure everyone knows that he’s still ready to throw down. In Europe, Sven Nys once again dominated the weekend while Niels Albert continued to struggle. Kevin Pauwels is starting to show signs of life again and in Japan Yu Takenouchi took home his third straight title.

As far as my predictions went, things were far better than last week. Once again, no perfect podiums, but I did really well.
