When you win the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships nine times, it’s understandable that the world’s only cyclocross magazine and website profiles your bikes quite a number of times as well. We’ve geeked out over Compton’s past bikes over the years, which have included models from Primus Mootry, Stevens and Giant, along with her 2013 National Championship-winning Trek aluminum prototypethis season’s Trek Crockett, and her Boone debut on January 1.

Compton’s new bikes differ greatly from Sven Nys’ Trek Boone bikes not only in size and color scheme, but in component and brake selection. Compton has been racing cantilevers, and is sponsored by SRAM and thus rides SRAM Red components, while Nys has always used Shimano. The two champions share the same wheel and cockpit choices, but differ even in tire brands.
