USA Cycling Pro CX: Wyman clinches, Powers regains standings top spots

The riders of the USA Cycling Professional Cyclo-cross Calendar (Pro CX) returned to action after a hiatus for the holidays, competing in the Chicago Cyclocross Cup New Year’s Resolution in Bloomingdale, Ill., on Saturday and Sunday. After overcoming cold, snowy conditions on Saturday, the riders were greeted by frigid temperatures on Sunday, which made for exciting racing in two very different races. The plummeting mercury had no effect on the riders as points grow scarce with only two more events remaining on the calendar.
