Katerina Nash (Luna) topped the podium for a second consecutive day at CXLA on Sunday.
Nash repeated Saturday’s solo victory in the sun-splashed Los Angeles State Historic Park, while Nicole Duke (Marin-Spy) out-sprinted Rachel Lloyd (California Giant-Specialized) for second.
In men’s racing, Ben Berden (Raleigh-Clement) proved strongest of a tough lead group, out-kicking teammate Jamey Driscoll and Tim Johnson (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com) to take the win.

Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies enjoyed a fine finale to the Baystate Cyclocross Weekend as Jeremy Durrin and Crystal Anthony won the elite races on Sunday.
The weekend’s events, run at the Chocksett School in Sterling, Massachusetts, served as rounds nine and 10 of the Verge New England Cyclocross Championship Series.
In the men’s race, Durrin found a way to stop the unstoppable Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus), who had to settle for second after winning Saturday’s opener.
Curtis White (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com) finished third.
In women’s racing, Anthony prevailed in a hard-fought battle with Arley Kemmerer (C3-Twenty20). Elle Anderson (California Giant-Specialized) rounded out the podium in third.

- This is a very nice and hard to find Lemond Poprad cyclocross frame and fork. It is made of Reynolds 853 (some of the good stuff) and rides beautifully. This comes with the frame, the fork, a Cane Creek headset with the brake stop, the seat clamp with the brake stop. It is in really good shape with some nicks here and there but all in all quite good. I was going to build this up but decided on a Surly Long Haul Trucker instead so this needs to go. Having ridden a Poprad I can tell you it is a super smooth and fast ride. The geometry is such that the top tube is a little longer than the seat tube. From center to center the seat tube is 55cm and the top tube center to center is 56cm. I am located in Richmond Heights.
- This is a beautiful Surly Pacer frameset. It includes the frame, a Bontrager carbon fork, a Cane Creek headset and a Surly seatclamp. I got it thinking I would build up a road bike but went with a Surly Long Haul instead. It is in really great shape with great gray that sparkles a bit in the sun. I thought I would put it up here before slapping it on eBay (something I would rather not do!)
Ryan Trebon (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com) out-sprinted Logan Owen (California Giant-Specialized) to win Saturday’s CXLA, the final event in the four-race Cross After Dark series.
In women’s racing, Katerina Nash (Luna) soloed in for the win at Los Angeles State Historic Park.
With one lap remaining in the men’s race there were 12 riders in the lead group and it was anybody’s race, until Trebon lit it up to take the victory from Owen with Danny Summerhill (K-Edge-Felt) third.
Nash, meanwhile, carried a 10-second lead into bell lap, and she was able to hold her advantage to the line despite a chase containing Rachel Lloyd (Cal Giant-Specialized) and Nicole Duke (Marin-Spy).
Lloyd took the runner-up spot while Duke finished third.
When the series standings were tallied, Trebon claimed the overall title ahead of Ben Berden (Raleigh-Clement) and Tim Johnson (Cannondale). It was the first Cross After Dark crown for Trebon, who finished second to Berden in 2012.
Berden had been leading the 2013 series going into the finale, but finished off the podium on Saturday.
Nash took the women’s overall title, her second.
