[updated 10/16/2012]

To date in the 2012 cyclocross season, Jeremy Powers (Rapha-Focus) has won eight of the eleven races he’s started. The remaining results: second, third, and fifth. The current U.S. cyclocross champion has defied his competition over and over again. Why is Powers dominating? Who or what can stop him?

During day 2 of the U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross Smartwool Cup in Fort Collins, Colorado, Powers revealed what’s behind his winning streak, and several riders shared their opinions on on what it will take to turn the tables. See what Tim Allen (Feedback Sports), Brady Kappius (Clif Bar), Tim Johnson (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld), Russ Harding (Natural Grocers), and Ben Berden and Allen Krughoff of Raleigh-Clement have to say, followed by lap-by-lap race footage that tracks the leaders.

Finally, note the position of Danny Summerhill (Garmin-Chipotle) during lap 8; he finished fourth.
