This is the biggest event in the bay area in cyclocross and our small team made an impact. First to get on the podium was Benoit Dubuisson in the single speed B race in 5th place.
Craig Ball also came in 5th in the men's 45 B race . In the open B race Javier Valencia placed 37th, just ahead of Matty Garcia in 38th in a filed of 73 riders.
Big winner on the night was Scott Chapin winning the mens A race for the second year in a row and the third time in the last five years. This year he tried something different-a headlight that was provided by the sponsor Knog lights. I guess it worked very well and made it easy to pick out Scott coming down the course.
Also in the mens A race were Alex Work in 18th, Brendan Lehman in 26th and Ben Dodge in 38th. In the womens races Campbell Steers finished in the money in 8th place it the A race. Alexis De Zubria finished in 15th in the womens B race followed by Areil Raymon in 18th. In Masters racing Rick Ortenblad finished 12th in the 55+ rce followed by me in 15th and Brent Harris in 18th. It was a fun night with very large fields and many spectators.
