The interesting thing to me is not necessarily that Ryan Trebon kicked ass in such a forthright and direct manner (and don’t get me wrong - I’m not trying to diminish that in any way!), but that Jonathan Page managed to come in second after being off the bike until just a couple weeks ago.

Here’s Page’s description of the injury he sustained:

“I ripped the two major tendons in my shoulder, so they took a pair of pliers and pulled the tendons back up and then drilled eight holes in my bone and put a gutter in there and sewed the tendons through,” said Page, who had been back on the bike for only three weeks prior to nationals. “It’s been very difficult. I put my plane tickets on my credit card to come here. I have no team for 2007. It was a risk coming over here. I’m hoping for a top-five at the world championships.”

So, if you’ve got a company that needs some exposure in Europe, and in particular would like to gain some front-of-the-mind position among beer-swilling, cowbell-ringing Belgians, for example, hook up Jonathan for next year, OK?
