CCCX final fort Ord

The rain finally arrived on 1-17-10 to the Santa Cruz cyclocross scene after what was a very dry season. The CCCX final race is usually a smaller turnout than the races before the nationals but the fields were pretty large as a lot of people wanted to get in one muddy race before hanging up the 'cross bike until next season. Kathleen Bortolussi and Michelle Perez got 2nd and 3rd overall in the series and capped off a season of good rides.
In the womens elites , Jill Fattor finished 3rd for the season with Stella Carey finishing 5th.
Here's something you don't see very much-two sponsors on the podium. Yes, that is Jeff Traugott in his first full season of cyclocross getting 2nd overall for the series and I barely hung onto 4th .

Scott Chapin showed that he was the most consistant of anyone in the CCCX mens elite field and really had no challenger close on points. Jason Rahlwes did a good final ride to get 5th for the series.

For the day , Justin Robinson, Dave Wyandt and Scott Chapin finished in that order , besting a strong field in the muddy conditions.

Stella Carey once again on the podium, 3rd for the day in the womens elite race with a strong ride .

Brett Lambert showing once again that a broken thumb can't keep him off the bike.

Here's one more shot of the 45 B podium with Jeff and I holding the plaques.
