Surf city final and county championship

Janel and Natasha rode another great race to finish 2 and 3 on the day. The course was really hilly and demanding, much more difficult than Harbor High courses of the past.

Howie and Tim were 1 and 2 in the mens 45 A group with Howie claiming the county champion hat.
This was a huge victory for Will Hall in the 45 B race getting the overall series victory and 2nd on the day. Will finished no worse than 2nd in the four race series. Benoit Dubiusson finished 6th on the day
Brent Harris and I fought it out with the field of 13 in the mens 55 group. I came in 4th and Brent came in 6th.....the results for the day and the overall were not quite dialed.

This is Brent after his collision with a tree and some dehydration from the warm dry conditions.
Here's Tim Watson attempting to explain how he got 2nd place after spending a few days this week in bed with food poisoning......he was in disbelief ! Both Tim And Frank made for a really festive last race of the season with a super barbeque and folks from the team and outside the team were well fed. Although I didn't get photos, Aaron Bradford showed up and rode to 2nd place in the mens A race and secured 2nd overall in the series. Ben Dodge rode to another top-10 capping off an excellent season. Michael Schaller rode in the 35 B group but I was unable to get a placing for him. Alex Work dominated the single speed race again adding a county championship to his district championship.Results can be seen at Surf City cyclocross.
