 Who's going to shred the course on the 1973 Motobecane ?
 Zac Stanley got on the podium first with a 3rd place in the nearly sold out 35 B race. Benoit Dubuisson finished 7th in the 45 B race that was sold out .Allan Bennett and Michael Schaller would follow.
 Alan Bennett would later use the pit single speed in the same race as Zac Stanley.Brian Staby finished 10th in the mens 35 A field ,Mark Howland finished 7th in the 45 A race followed by b.b.q. master Tim Watson in 13th. The ribs ,salad and jalapeno cornbread along with a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies fed not only our team but many other racers who came by the team tent.
 Ellen Sherrill is back ! A 4th place in the womens A race confirmed that. Katie Jay Melina would finish in the money at 7th followed by Mary Ellen Ash.
 Next to grace the podium was Janel Lodge in 3rd in the womens masters. This was a great result in a dense field.
 The fog kept coming in during the mens A race and here's Aaron Bradford and Scott Chapin in the lead group.
 With two laps remaining Aaron made a move that stuck until the end of the race, winning his second consecutive BASP race.
 Scott Chapin stayed in the chase group and made the podium in 5th proving that he is definitely back.
 Dodgeball in full flight late in the race. Ben would roll a tire and have a fairly long run before getting a bike change.
 Aaron emptying the tank late in the last lap-The pain on his face  clearly visible .You have to hurt to win.
 The victory at the line with Cal Giant's Tobin Ortenblad in the distance only able to hang his head after a futile chase.
The mens A podium with Aaron first and Scott fifth-a great result in one of the best fields of the season. Check the Pilarcitos cyclocross site for other placings.
