Surf City II Harbor High

 Without some key riders from the team able to make it to this race we were still probably the dominant team on the day. There were Bicycle Bluebook riders on nearly every podium. In the mens A race Scott Chapin got 3rd-definitely on his way up in the elite peloton. Andrew Juiliano was always near the front finishing 6th with both Kevin Crossley (9th) and Alex Work (10th) up there in the top-ten action. Zac Stanley finished on the lead lap in 22nd and Aaron Odell finished 26th.

 Katie Jay Melina rode a strong race at or near the front of the womens A race for seven punishing laps of the hilly course finishing 4th. Mary Ellen Ash finished with another top ten in 9th.
 Livia Perez got 3rd in the womens 35+  not missing a podium opportunity all season.
 Ariel Raymon seemed to like the diffcult and techincal track and finished 4th in the womens B race.
Here's the mens A podium.
Sean Coffey showed that he is one of the top Nor-Cal single speeders with a 3rd place in the single speed A race. We also had some great placings in the mens masters: Brian Staby in the mens 35 A race finished 9th, Frank Kalcic  in the 45 A race finished 21st, Mark Abele got the win of the day in the mens 55+ with me trailing in 9th, Brent Harris 12th and Rick Ortenblad having a mechanical that took him out of the race. One of the best rides of the day was Alan Bennett finishing 2nd in the mens 45 B race with Benoit Dubuisson following in 8th, Craig Ball in 12th and Michael Schaller in 25th.
