too soon to think about 'cross? Think again...


Yes, it may be the beginning of summer but a whole storm of activity in the last week has caused the team mismanagement to get a jump on steering our crooked and crazy course to the muddier times. The 2007 roster will have some new faces and some departures. The new folks are: Max Clifford ( 35 +) Sarah Kerlin ( Womens A ) Matt Jordan ( 35 +) Michael Hernandez ( you name it, he'll race it). Now for the sad part. Looks like Shelley Olds has gone to Cal Giant to Join possibly the biggest team in Calif. with the most resouces ( Title sponsor of the nationals last year...) Rob Evans will sit out most of the season and our Capitain Simon Vickers will be moving to the eastern Sierras to pursue rock climbing and sports massage. Brent Chapman has moved to Bend Oregon so he will be the most distant team memeber. With all of these changes the team has the task of taking on the new year with a renewed focus on the local events. Our masters mens team might be able to effectively battle the Cal Giant squad, no doubt the best in the country in the 35 plus age group. With the addition of Sarah Kerlin we will still have a mighty duo in the Womens elite as Stella Carey looks to stay with the team. Before long we will all have to communicate and get any and all clothing,frame and component orders together. Most of you are set from last year with bikes. No doubt, the new folks will need all of the ameninties that returning members already posess. Our mechanic Ryan Bontrager informs me that he will be present and prepared for any and all of your needs at the races. We should consider ourselves very lucky to have a skilled person with this level of dedication backing our play. The final roster should be set in two weeks. Cheers, swiggboss.
