The international cyclocross calendar opens Saturday at the Rohrbach’s Ellison Park Cyclocross in Rochester, New York, and with it come a number of jersey changes for top riders in American ’cross. Among the movers and shakers are national champion Katie Compton, who joined the new Trek Cyclocross Collective squad after leaving Rabobank, and former national champ Ryan Trebon, who joined Stu Thorne’s powerhouse Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com team in the spring.

Optum and Raleigh-Clement have each launched new teams with riders like Jesse Anthony and Amanda Miller, and Ben Berden and Nicole Duke, respectively. Upstart Teal Stetson-Lee will ride in the blue skinsuit of the Luna Chix squad, while Jonathan Page and Sue Butler are still looking for sponsors to round out their programs.

Below is a rundown of a number of the country’s top elite men’s and women’s teams and their rosters for the 2012-13 season. [Is your favorite rider missing? Include them in the comments below the story. — Ed.]
