When we last caught up with Crystal Anthony a few short months ago, she was wrapping up a long school year as a Spanish teacher. Hopefully, her students were impressed with the resume she created over those ten months, which included a fourth place at Cyclocross Nationals, and representing the United States at Hoogerheide.

10 Questions for Crystal Anthony
Cross Magazine

Andrew Reimann January 2014


We caught up with Crystal Anthony, one of the few women selected to represent the United States at the Cyclocross World Championships in Hoogerheide, literally right before she left to the airport for Europe. While she has been a force to contend with on the cyclocross course since 2008, and has already proven herself as a strong contender at the World Cup level, this will be Crystal’s first time participating in Worlds. This season, she joined up with Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies and has been under the coaching direction of her brother, Jesse, who is no stranger to Cyclocross even though he made the transition to road cycling full time. The end of the season has been a major balancing act for Crystal, but it sounds as if she wouldn’t have it any other way…
