LTS/Felt's rider Ryan Trebon convalescing from knee injury - Cycling News

LTS/Felts Team’s Ryan Trebon has not ridden his bike after suffering a crash and finishing tenth on day two of the Exergy UD Gran Prix of Cyclocross Derby City Cup 2011, on Sunday. However, he is optimistic that the knee injury will not have any lasting
The 30-year-old American bicycle racer, who failed to retain his USGP lead, is hopeful that he will take the leader’s jersey at the series finale in December.
On Thursday, he told the that he was able to get physical therapy and hopefully he will be able to ride in afternoon for few hours.
He explained, "Nothing's broken and I didn't tear any ligaments, it's just a lot of swelling and bruising. I'm bruised pretty much from the middle of my calf all the way up to my crotch”.
On the opening day of the race, Trebon displayed a tremendous performance and took the runner-up’s spot with 33 seconds down to Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus).
Before the second day’s race, he crashed while pre-riding the course and injured his left knee. Despite his fall, he continued his effort throughout the race.
Although it was quite uncomfortable for him and he had to stop during each of the laps for the flyover section, he put up a heroic performance and grabbed the 10th place, with a difference of 2 minutes and 21 seconds behind eventual winner, Powers.
He added, "To go into the weekend with a 42-point lead and leave with a negative six deficit is never a good thing, but it could have been a lot worse. That I was able to race on Sunday makes it possible that I can win the overall series once we get to Bend”.
Previously, he took the runner-up’s spot in USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championship (2009-2010).
He earned the first place in USA Cyclo-cross Championships in 2006 and 2008. Trebon also won the USA Cycling National Cross-Country Mountain Bike Championships and the overall U.S Gran Prix of Cyclo-cross series in 2006.
Trebon took numerous victories in the 2003 season, where he won the North Carolina State Cyclo-cross Championship, overall Mid-Atlantic Cyclo-cross series and the Phrophecy Creek.
Now, Trebon hopes that he will recover soon and will win the final series in December.
