Katie Compton is without doubt the most successful American cyclocross racer ever with nearly two dozen World Cup wins, three World Championship medals, two overall World Cup titles, and a dominating 10 US national titles. Not surprisingly, Trek Factory Racing showers the affable Coloradan with an enviable level of equipment support so she can be prepared for any course conditions, anywhere, at any time.
While many racers are locked into using either rim brakes or disc brakes, Compton has Trek Boone 9s set up with both. Compton and her husband/mechanic Mark Legg-Compton don’t travel the globe with both simultaneously, though. Compton generally prefers the lighter and less powerful rim brake bikes for the rigors of European racing, while the disc bikes are usually reserved for racing on home soil.
