This weekend saw a whole host of CX national champs taking place, and we’re starting off with the good old US of A. Stephen Hyde took his 2nd consecutive title in Reno, Nevada, after a thrillingly close battle with friend of the channel Jeremy Powers. In the women’s, it was a case of youth vs experience. 22 year old Ellen Noble, famed not just for her bunny hopping skills but also her raw talent, against Katie Compton, 17 years her senior.

Australia’s biggest Pro team put a frustrating couple of days firmly behind them on day 3 - some fine teamwork allowed them to isolate race leader Garfoot, who was forced to chase any dangerous breakaways herself. Despite her form, she couldn’t cover everything, and taking advantage was Amanda Spratt, who rode away to the stage win and a comfortable lead in the GC.

And finally, kicking off the men’s season proper was the People’s Choice Classic criterium in Adelaide, the traditional prelude to the Tour Down Under. As the saying goes, start as you mean to go on - that is exactly what Peter Sagan has done in 2018 - one race, one win, sprinting across the line in front of Andre Greipel and Caleb Ewan no less.
