Colt:I hate to lobby, but you really need to show Justin Lindine some love this week. Back to back doubles in big races. Not just wins, but convincing wins. Imagine if he had a big bike sponsor and a little support.Kevin

Hey Ashludwig.....there are probably less than 5 people on the planet with Cyclingdirt T-Shirts. I have contributed thousands of photos, 400 videos, etc.....and I had to steal one out of Colt's bedroom! Good luck getting yours.
Colt: Thanks for the reply and all your work promoting the sport. I generally agree with you. However you vacillate between the here and now in your rankings and historical credentials. For example your early women's rankings gave the top spot to a non-racer, based upon history. My only point is that Lindine has been the picture of consistency and appears to be on an upswing. Many riders, including Johnson, Page, Berden and others do not appear to have traction and may be on the downswing. Others are MIA. Your ranking should reflect this. But you are largely correct, that until Lindine beats the Johnsons of the world in big races, he should not pass them in the rankings. That being said, it is time for some big bike company to take notice and give him the opportunity. I would bet that he is not missing the big events by choice, it is most likely simple economics. Thanks, againKevin
Are you kidding. Lindine wins (understatement) both days at Providence and you still have him in the teens. No way. Look at his results at Vegas and Gloucester. Also, you should give some deference to riders without big bike sponsors, working their aXX off weekend after weekend and rubbing quarters together. Not right. Huele looked like a sweedish chcolate maker beat by the Hershey Kiss. Yet top ten, Driscoll 4--why.
@TomTom There's a good chance J-Pow will earn it by the end of the year but I don't think what-ifs should determine who's on top this week. Head to head, Trebon has been indisputably stronger thus far. Lots of folks will race more than Todd Wells but in the races that count, he's going to prove his worth. I reckon wisdom in energy expenditures should be a bonus in rankings, not a deficit.
By my count, Powers and Trebon have raced each other five times this season and Trebon has beaten Powers 3 out of 5 times. Trebon should be number one!
Yeah.....Ryan went 1-2 while Jeremy went 1-3 but when Powers overcame that 20 second deficit on Sunday he won the weekend. That was INCREDIBLE. It is going to be fun watching these two race. Congrats to our friend Mary McConneloug.....oldest world cup mountain biker and still getting it done. She is perhaps the most focused and prepared athlete I have ever seen. The shocker to me is Mical Dyck....are you telling me that you can go compete in one X-Terra and be number 4 in N. Amercian Cross? I love Mical and could not be happier for her. I go along with giving Katerina another week at the top spot....but it is quite clear that Katie is still ramping up her fitness, bike fit, and polishing her skills. Respect. Compton. Period.
Great to see the U23 Canadian Champ, Evan McNeely cracking the top 20 after a solid showing in Providence. His position matches his age.Before the weekend Kabush Tweeted "Good memories heading to Fort Collins #USGPcx. Feeling like this weekend is make it or break it for my cyclocross season." We all know how it turned out."The Dangler"? Awesome nickname.TreBOOM should be #1 in light of going 1-2 vs JPow's 1-3. Just because you race more doesn't mean you're better. I have a feeling this argument will not be settled until we get to Mad-town in January.
