December 1, 2007 (Portland, OR) – Tim Johnson (Cannondale/Leer/Cyclocrossworld.com) and Georgia Gould (Luna) each powered their way to a victory today and the series overall leads as the US Gran Prix of Cyclocross enters its final weekend at the Toyota Portland Cup in Portland, OR. As expected, the weather was a significant factor. In the words of US Gran Prix of Cyclocross announcer extraordinaire Richard Fries…“It was a bad day for everything except cyclocross.” The bone-chilling wintry mix of snow, wind, mud and rain made it messy but seemed to be a magnet for the Portland crowds who turned out 6,000 strong.
