It dosen't get much better than this...

The Surf City race at Soquel high school might have just as well been called the HRS/Lobster party as riders from the team figured prominently in several events. First off, newcomer Alex Work got on the podium with a fine 3rd place in the mens B catagory. Not to be outdone, Stella bested the womens A field in a hotly contested race that really came down to the last half a lap where Stella surged to the front of a group of three and stayed there finishing a good 4-5 bike lengths ahead of the next racer. Bettina Hold finished just off the podium in 6th. The mens A event was dominated by Dave Wyandt and Josh Snead. Early on Aaron Odell looked to be very strong but a front flat sent him to the back of the field in the 3rd lap. He managed to move up to 15th in spite of the setback. A group of three went away containing Snead, Wyandt and Cameron Falconer. This group was joined by Troy Berry in the middle of the race. With three laps to go Wyandt attacked and Falconer was gone. Wyandt's gap was growing and Snead was following Berry giving him no help in the chase. It the last lap Snead was able to shed Beery and secure second behind Wyandt who celebrated his first victory of the season. Aaron Kereluk had a bad start but motored through the field to finish on the podium in 5th after a long battle with Jason Rahwles.
