Johnson Wins Again In Kansas City

Tim Johnson attacked Jonathan Page on the second-to-last time up the hill to the finish line and never relinquished the lead on the way to winning the Men's Elite title at the USA Cycling National Cyclocross Championships Sunday at Wyandotte County Park.

Johnson, this year's USGP series runner-up, threw his bike into the muddy ditch after the finish line and let out a big yell as the crowd cheered him on.

When the national cyclocross championships were last in Kansas City in 2000, Johnson was the winner.

Local favorite Steve Tilford of Topeka, Kan., double-flatted two times during the race.
