CCCX final-Ft. Ord

There were lots of wins for the team today at the local many that I hope I get them all in print. First to hit the podium were Allan Bennett (2nd) and Benoit Dubuission (3rd) for the single speed B race.

Michael Schaller ended his season with a 4th overall in the men's 45-B race with some consistent riding.

Benoit also won the overall in the single speed B class for the season with high placings in all the races.
 The first win on the day was Mark Abele in the 55 open race. Mark pretty much dominated the class for the whole season and captured the overall season win as well. I was able to get 3rd in the overall thanks to showing up when it counted.Rick Ortenblad should have had the 3rd place in the series but was absent from the last race due to flu.

 Katie Jay Melina got 3rd in the women's elite race and also got 3rd overall in the series-capping off arguably her most successful season ever.

 Livia Perez ran away with the women's 35+ race overall winning over half the races in the series with the highest point total of nearly everyone.
 Areil Raymon and Alexis DeZubria got 3rd and 4th in the women's B race with Alexis winning the season overall .

Scott Chapin ended his season with a commanding win in the men's A race. The only rider within a minute of Scott at the end was Alex Work getting his first CCCX podium of the season. 

The big winner of the day in the overall was none other than Ben Dodge-his very first series win. Alex Work also got on the podium in 3rd. This great team performance happened even with many of the racers not able to compete in all or even most of the races in the series. Also, a good number of our team was not present at this last event and sacrificed their overall standings. That said, this edition of CCCX showed how deep this team is and that in spite of odds, the team can always make a great showing. I would like to thank Rod and Keith for putting on CCCX and to the team for showing up and making it a real race in this home town series.
