Updated UCI CX Rankings

The UCI just posted its updated world cyclocross rankings on November 26, 2013.  With his great fall season of CX, Cam has moved up to 126th in the world and is currently the 18th best in the US on UCI points.

You can find the full list here.

Unlike many of the others on the list, Cam is both working a full time job and started with zero points at the beginning of this season.  Zero points meant he started at the back of the field at the big races and fight his way to the front:

Congratulations to Cam on his first UCI win on Sunday at the HPCX cyclocross event in New Jersey on Sunday.

Results are available here:

From Velonews, here's how it went down:

"Cameron Dodge (Scott Racing) and Laura Van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom) won Sunday’s HPCX cyclocross race in Highland Park, N.J.

Dodge was part of a group that stayed in front for the entire men’s race, and when the pack shattered near the end of the final lap, he made his move and darted ahead. Dodge expertly made his way through the final section of the course, which featured a twisty downhill section, a sharp left, a punchy climb, and another downhill before turning to the finish.

Jerome Townsend (Bikereg-Joe’s Garage) managed to sneak in ahead of Anthony Clark (Jam Fund-NCC) for second. The two crossed the finish line at nearly the same instant but Townsend was able to throw his bike across first."
Sunday's win was following another CX win on Saturday at the Fair Hill MAC event (where Cam is the current series leader).

Product Testing - Wolftooth Drop-Stop Cyclocross Chainring

Putting the Wolftooth LLC drop-stop cyclocross chainrings through some real world testing.  Set up with a 42T chainring and an Ultegra short cage rear derailleur, even after this bad crash, the chain stayed on the chainring!

I saw a recent article on Velonews about the "new" SRAM cyclocross XX1 style grouppo.  Well, with a Wolftooth chainring on a current crankset and a short cage derailleur, the same exact performance is already available.  Why wait?
