Special 'no camera' report on CCCX

Batteries go dead sometimes,this was the case Sunday at the CCCX in fort Ord. The camera may have been a dud but our team was on fire as the early B mens race was won by a bunnyhopping Alex Work , recording his first ever win on a bike. Next up were the masters A group with Tim Watson riding to 8th place and Frank Kalcic finishing his first A race in 18th. Julie Borthers came away with a bronze medal in the womens 35 plus group. The mens A race saw a fired up Aaron Odell leading from the gun and running away from the locals despite two bike changes. Dean Poshard helped early on with some good blocking and came in 6th , one of his best finishes of the year. Ben Dodge rode to 10th in spite of a couple mechanicals. Nick Purtscher started fast and payed for it but still held on to a credible 14th place. With a big part of the team at the Nationals this weekend showed the depth of this team-capeable of dominating the local races even with the bulk of the team elsewhere.
