#14 for Katie

Katie Compton wins her 14th US Nationals

It was an incredible performance by Katie Compton at US Cyclocross Nationals in Reno, Nevada. Coming off a successful European campaign, Katie was looking to continue the momentum. It was a tough battle, with Ellen Noble chasing hard.

"Whew...that was hard! This sure doesn’t get any easier! I’m really happy to take the win after a hard race with Ellen chasing close behind the whole time. I got a gap through the sand on the second lap so I attacked after that to make her chase and I was able to maintain that till the end."

"I had a small bobble in the final downhill to the finish and lost about 10sec so I really had to pedal hard and sprint to the finish knowing Ellen would be chasing as hard as she could. It felt great to cross the line and win again. It’s still sinking in I think. Super happy though!"
