Just wanted to say I watched this earlier today and it was a _great_ race. I only wish they'd shown a bit more of it but they showed enough to get the flavor of what transpired, and Jonathan Page came across as a very savvy, not to mention talented, cyclocross rider.

And he was always readily identifiable by the red of his jersey!

Great stuff!
