Bend, Oregon — Danny Summerhill of the Garmin-Felt team put in a brilliant ride Saturday to win the Under-23 title at the USA Cycling National Cyclo-cross Championships.
Racing in cold, sloppy conditions in Bend, Oregon, Summerhill piloted his Felt F15X to a solo victory. He won with a 23-second margin over second-place Chance Noble and nearly a minute over Luke Keough in third.
A silver medalist as a Junior at the 2007 World Cyclocross Championships, Summerhill earned the right to represent the USA at the upcoming 2010 World's in the Czech Republic.
