CCCX III Manzanita park

 There have been many days in the history of this team where we brought about 3/4 of the team and at least 3/4 of them wound up on the podium. First of the day was David Kalcic racing the open C class instead of his 14-16 age group. He came in second. Next was Benoit Dubuisson getting second in the single speed B class adding to his two other podium spots in the series. Tim Watson rode strongly to third in the mens 45+ A race. Alexis De Zubria rode to third in the womens B race and Michelle Perez rode to third in the women's 45+ race. Greg Foy rode to third in the men's 55+ race , his fourth podium in as many races.
 In the Elite races the performance was even more dominant with Justin Abbott taking the win ( his first A win ever ) and 41 year old Alex Work coming in second. Rounding out the podium was Brendan Lehman riding a strong race finishing fifth. Ian Stowe came in eighth with a solid ride.The Womens Elite race was a similar story as Caroline Dezendorf rode an aggressive race for the win with Campbell Steers coming in third with a strong performance.
Other riders on the team had decent rides with Ben Dodge coming in tenth in the mens 35 A race, Rick Ortenblad 7th in the men's 55+, Frank Kalcic in twelfth in the men's 45 B race followed by Davind Crum in 18th, Detlef Adam in 22nd and Michael Schaller in 23rd.  Javier Valencia rode to 12th in the men's B field, one of the largest of the day.
