Louisville, Kentucky -- Felt cyclocross rider Ryan Trebon made the best of a tough situation at the November 12-13 Derby City Cup event, which made up rounds 5 and 6 of the USGP series. Trebon came into the two-race weekend leading the series—but an untimely crash during his warm-up on Sunday put his standing in jeopardy.

The crash left Trebon with a badly bruised knee, and he wasn't sure if he would be able to race at all. He took the start, however, and gutted it out to finish 10th on his Felt F1X, which put him second overall, within 6 points of the series lead.
Cincinnati, Ohio - Felt-sponsored cyclocross racers Ryan Trebon and Caroline Mani collected major UCI points at the Cincy3 Cyclocross Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio, over the weekend. Both scored multiple podiums, and Trebon won the second of three races in the Cincinnati area on his Felt F1X cyclocross bike.

The Cincy3 event featured three straight UCI races, two C2 events and a C1. Trebon, the No. 1 ranked U.S. cyclocross racer, battled a strong group of American rivals, and Belgian Ben Berden at each of the races. He opened the weekend finishing third on a hilly, technical course with some mud sections at Devou Park in Covington, Kentucky.
Traverse City, Michigan - With more than 4,800 racers, the Bell’s Brewery Iceman Cometh in Traverse City, Michigan is the largest single-day point-to-point mountain bike race in North America. And of those 4,800 plus starters, three Felt riders finished with top-five finishes in the pro categories.

In the men’s race, Mafia Racing team rider Tristian Schouten finished fourth. And in the women’s race, Kenda/Felt team riders Amanda Carey and Judy Freeman (pictured) finished fourth and fifth respectively.
Colorado Springs, Colorado - Felt-sponsored track racers Sarah Hammer, Dotsie Bausch, Jennie Reed and Lauren Tamayo have been chosen as USA Cycling’s 2011 Athletes of the Year. The four riders have led the U.S. women to unprecedented success at the international level, including setting a new world record in May 2010.

Hammer, Bausch and Tamayo became the first women’s pursuit team to break the 3:20 barrier when they posted a time of 3:19.569 in 2010. At the 2011 World Championships in The Netherlands, Hammer, Bausch and Reed made it to the gold medal round and eventually earned the silver medal—a first for American women at World Championhips.
