San Jose Cougar CX

 Tim Watson not only created a great buffey lunch for the team, he managed to get the only podium of the day-3rd in the masters 45 + race.
 Mary Ellen Ash was in the top ten in the Womens A race until with two laps to go flatted a rear tire and had a very long walk to the pit.
 Ellen Sherrill looking serious as hell and having a good race finishing 4th in the Womens A race.
Aaron Bradford getting re-aquainted with CX racing......he didn't fall and finished 5th in the Mens A race. Kevin Crossley looked to be having a great race until he flatted and had a long wait for a front wheel.
 Scott Chapin showint that if you don't like the barriers you can just ride around them......he would finish somewhere near the top 10. Alex Work was a couple places behind and Aaron Odell flatted out and found his spare bike had a flat as well......bad luck was not uncommon at this race. Kailin Waterman and Benoit Dubuisson would abandon for various reasons as would a number of other racers.
 Brendan Lehman, alias 'shreddlocks' had a decent race and pulld up a few places in the closing laps of the Mens A race.
Check out the Norcal CX website for all the placings. For a new venue, this Montgomery Hill park wound up being a real interesting track-maybe not a traditional CX race , but this is Nor-Cal and you have to be ready for anything.
