It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Kona twin towers of Ryan Trebon and Barry Wicks tower above everyone on the podium, and for a brief moment, it looked as if the two lanky riders would regain their dominance here in Iowa city, Iowa. Trebon and Wicks took to the front early, forcing defending Day 1 winner Todd Wells and Jamey Driscoll to chase. With the numbers in Kona’s favor, it was perfect opportunity to put Driscoll on the ropes with a one-two punch and after Wicks flew up the opening climb up Mt. Krumpit and descended with a gap, it looked like a Kona plan was in place. But nobody had planned for Trebon to crash badly on the descent, and the rider would pull out of the race citing a painful wrist and hopes of a better showing for Saturday’s C2 event and Sunday’s C1 race. Driscoll would leave Wicks behind to take his first UCI win of the season leaving Barry in second.

Different Story here at the 2010 UCI Carousel Volkswagen Jingle Cross Rock SUNDAY: In the men’s race, Kona’s Ryan Trebon and Barry Wicks took to the front early again, but this time it was Trebon who lasted, not Wicks putting the hammer down for the win by 30 seconds.
