USA Cycling has announced seven automatic nominations and 11 discretionary selections to the U.S. team headed for the 2005 UCI cyclo-cross world championships January 29-30 in St. Wendel, Germany.

Automatic selections include elite men Jonathan Page and Ryan Trebon; under-23 Jesse Anthony; junior men Bjorn Selander and Charles Marzot; and elite women Katie Compton and Ann Knapp.

Compton, who also races as the sighted half of a Paralympic team, declined her nomination.

Page, the top-ranked American in the UCI standings, captured his third consecutive elite men’s championship title December 12 in Portland, Oregon. Compton, better known for the three medals she and Karissa Whitsel earned at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, won the women’s title. Anthony collected a sixth consecutive national cyclo-cross crown in Portland – and also snagged the overall win in the U-23 division of the Crank Brothers U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclo-cross series – while Selander took the men’s junior title in only his second year of racing ’cross.

Trebon, Knapp and Marzot, meanwhile, were nominated based on their overall victories in the USGP series.

Discretionary selections include:

Women
Gina Hall, second at nationals; Rhonda Mazza, eighth at nationals and third in the USGP; Sarah Kerlin, fifth at nationals; and Barbara Howe, who scored four top-five finishes in the series, placed fifth overall and cracked the top-10 at nationals, finishing ninth.

Under-23
Matthew White, Jeremy Powers, Troy Wells and John Hanson. Powers, Wells and White finished second, third and fourth, respectively, at nationals. Hanson was fourth overall in the USGP.

Junior men
Braden Kappius, Adam McGrath and Mitchell Peterson. Kappius and Petersen both finished on the podium at nationals while McGrath finished the season ranked second overall in the USGP.

Additional discretionary selections for the elite men’s category will be named on January 12, 2005.
