Danny Summerhill's Force CX1 Felt
Danny Summerhill (K-EDGE/Felt) this fall confirmed his standing as one of America's best cyclocross racers by defeating reigning US champ Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus) by 2 seconds in Louisville. The two are favorites for Sunday's US National Cyclocross Championship in Austin. We are witnessing, perhaps, the start of a fun, friendly and - for CX fans - entertaining rivalry between two riders with differing styles. Powers has a punchy attack. A pro roadie, Summerhill is comfortable spinning 110 cadence. So, it's no surprise he's running a 40 tooth SRAM Force CX1 X-SYNC chainring. Learn more about Summerhill's bike below.

SRAM HydroR hydraulic disc brakes provide improved and more consistent braking power and better modulation.
Summerhill is running a 40-tooth SRAM Force CX1 X-SYNC™ Chainring paired with an 11-32 WiFLi cassette. That combo allows him to spin up the steepest climbs while using the other end of his WiFLi cassette to power sections of the course.
SRAM's Reach Adjust allows adjustment of control levers to fit each rider's personal preference.
The Zipp Service Course SL-80 is a popular choice among pro roadies such as Summerhill.
It was easy to tell that Summerhill had been out pre-riding the course on Saturday in Austin.
