Ryan Trebon (Kona-FSA) has withdrawn his name from the U.S. elite men’s team for the cyclocross world championships. Trebon fell ill during a recent trip to California for training and informed USAC cyclocross program manager Marc Gullickson on Thursday that he would not join the team in St. Wendel, Germany, next week. Trebon’s absence means that just four Americans will line up for the elite men’s race January 30.

Jeremy Powers (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com) and Katie Compton (Planet Bike) are expected to lead the automatic selections, while a number of discretionary picks should build out the team’s roster, which may total as many as five riders in each category.
BRUSSELS, Belgium (VN) — The week between Christmas and New Year's is prime time for cyclocross in Belgium and the Netherlands, and in recent years the races have brought an influx of international competitors, including a large number of Americans and Canadians.
Madison, Wisconsin, will host U.S. cyclocross nationals in January 2012 and 2013. Is the later date a good idea?
