Unfortunately, selections are made based on finishing place, not lap times.  This is what USA Cycling’s cyclocross program director, Marc Gullickson had to say based on the Juniors' race:

"Unfortunately, there was a crash at the start of the junior race because I know there were a couple of good guys who were involved in that, but we don’t have a clause in the selection that says if there’s a crash we’ll consider your lap times — it’s just off of your finish place,” said Gullickson. “And I’m not even going to go there with the long list because it’s too close to call.”

Kenton, it was Spencer Paxson out there for Kona, not Sean Babcock. They both ride for Kona, so easy mistake. -mjc
