Meanwhile back in the US Jonathan Page was racing in Gloucester, MA. Day 1 treated the riders to wet, muddy conditions and Page capitalized on his technical skills to win the race by nearly 2 minutes on Saturday. Day 2 was a drier course and a group of 4 riders emerged with Page the odd man out against three Cyclocrossworld.com riders - Jamey Driscoll, Tim Johnson, and Jeremy Powers. An unfortunate crash between Page and Johnson caused Page to have to chase after Johnson for the remaining 2 laps and he was unable to make up the time. He finished a strong 2nd place.
