Compton and Lloyd Prepare for World Champs
23 January, 2009
WTB sponsored riders Katie Compton and Rachel Lloyd are poised for success leading into the Cyclocross World Championships next weekend. Compton won her third world cup of the season on January 18, in Roubaix, France. Compton soloed to victory on the muddy course that incorporated the legendary velodrome from the finish of Paris Roubaix. Compton's results are unprecedented for an American in international cyclocross competition. Compton's saddle of choice is the WTB Silverado.
Lloyd isn't far behind. The Marin County, California, native has been consistently finishing within the top ten in the world cup series. Additionally, she scored a second place---just behind former world champ Daphny Van Den Brand---at the UCI-sanctioned, category-two race Tervuren in Belgium. Lloyd also placed third at the U.S. National Cyclocross Championships earlier this season. Lloyd's saddle of choice is the WTB Shadow V.
Both Compton and Lloyd will be racing the final round of the world cup series in Milano, Italy, this weekend, and then the World Championships in Hoogerheide, Holland, on January 31. With Compton and Lloyd riding so strong, we're expecting nothing but gold!
