A rough, hot, dusty course outside of Granby, Colorado on Saturday set the stage for the 2010 U.S. National Mountain Bike Championships, with 47 pro men throwing their names in the hat for the cross-country title.

Todd Wells takes the win in front of JFK for first and second. Missing most of the action both in front and behind him, Trebon rode a strong, steady and uncontested pace for third place from start to finish.

“I really wanted to push a little harder, but there wasn’t a single place to rest on this course, so I felt like if I did so, I’d explode,” Trebon said. “Sometimes kicking it up just 2 percent takes another 20 percent effort, which I didn’t have today.”
