The Italian Job

American Katie Compton won the Cyclocross World Cup #1 in Treviso, Italy today.  Compton, riding the Zipp 303 Cyclocross, Zipp SLC2 bar, Zipp VumaQuad crankset, and Zipp Tangente High Performance Cork Brake Pad, dropped the field after just one lap.  The five-time U.S. National Champion beat her nearest competitor by 30 seconds.

On American soil, Tim Johnson (USA) of the Cannondale/Cyclocrossworld.com team bested Jonathan Page in the Grand Prix of Gloucester Day 2.  Johnson, a two-time U.S. National Champion, also rode the Zipp 303 Cyclocross to victory.

Congratulations to Katie and Tim!
