In the junior girls 10-14 race Shantalle Tupaz got 2nd on her brand new CX bike.
In the junior girls 15-18 Maya Fors got the win.
In the men's open B race, junior Dylan Gong got 4th followed by Kyle Taylor in 13th.
In the 45 B Men's race , veterans Craig Ball ( on a single speed) and Frank Kalcic got 16th and 18th.
In the master's 35 A race junior team co-ordinator Ben Dodge got 10th.
In the 45 A race John Vahlberg came in 27th.
In the 55 A race Greg Foy won by a mile getting his first district jersey,
In the 60 A race Rick Ortenblad rode strong to 8th
In the 65 A race Mark Brown got 3rd and the bronze medal.
In the women's A race the best showed up and there were some very fast lap times. Campbell Steers made the podium in 5th while Amanda Schaper followed in 7th
Brendan Lehman got the win, leading the race wire to wire. Alex work rode a steady race and came in second. Ian Stowe got caught in traffic but still finished 12th while Chris Seymour battled a bad back but finished 14th.
Our sole entrant into the new women's single speed race took home the win- Mary Maroon.
Max Judelson came in 3rd , showing that he will be a factor in the upcoming nationals .
East Coast resident Michael Landry overcame a first lap mechanical to finish a very strong 6th.
Eric Brown persevered on the bumpy course to finish 22nd.
With at least five district jerseys, this could be the best Nor-Cal showing for the team in its 12 year history. What was seen is that the junior team is really coming to the fore as a real national caliber group. This is largely the work of Ben Dodge and all the parents who are supportive of the kids.I think that we will be coming to Reno with the largest team presence at the event. It should be a great experience.

Dylan Gong 1st.
Nathan Horst 4th.
Manny Offonso II 7th.
Shantalle Tupaz 3rd.
Ciara Wing 1st.
In the men's 45+ A race John Vahlberg continues his solitary journey coming in 27th. This season he's our only 45+ rider so I hope that he doesn't get too lonely out there.
In the mens 55+ A race it's the Greg Foy show again with another win. Detlef Adam had a great race coming in 4th with a podium.
In the 60+ A race we had a trio of riders with me in 4th, Rick Ortenblad doubling up in 7th and Mark Brown in 8th.
Max is back ! Max Judelson in his second race of the season showed why he is one of Nor-Cal's most strongest coming in 2nd. Kailin Waterman might be nearing 40 years old but he rides like one of the youngsters-he came in 16th. Eric Nelson improved greatly from last week to come in 24th followed by Ben Dodge in 26th and Eric Brown in 30th.

There was a good sized single speed A field and Ian Stowe was always in the action finishing a strong 4th with Kailin Waterman doubling up and still coming in 9th.
The men's Elite race was a real breakthrough for Brendan Lehman. He led the race in a small group that got smaller as the race went on. Brendan pretty much pulled pace until two laps to go. He still finished 3rd, his best showing in at least 5 seasons of racing CCCX. Max Judelson's debut race was this day and he finished 10th in the large field followed by juniors Max McFadden in 17th, Emmet Tuttle in 23rd. Eric Brown continues to ride strong at CCCX with a 26th place followed by junior Caleb O'Hare in 31st and Eric Nelson in 32nd.
