Surf City Halloween race Aptos High

 Hard rain overnight and in the morning made for a classic Nor-Cal mud-fest. The wet conditions made for some dramatic crashes but very few injuries and not too many mechanicals. It has been a long time since we had conditions like this in October.
In the women's A race Campbell Steers made the podium in 4th followed by Allison Peck in 8th and Kelly Chang in 12th.
 Eric Nelson rode in the single speed A race to 7th place.
 A race long battle men's A race between Max Judelson and Justin Robinson was exciting to watch with Justin getting the better of Max in the last lap. Max would finish 2nd, Brendan Lehman 8th, Ian Stowe 9th, Kailin Waterman 14th, Dean Poshard 30th and 17 year old David Kalcic in 36th.
 In the mens 55+ open race Mark Hubbell and I got on the podium in 4th and 5th.

 In the mens 45B race John Vahlberg had a great race coming in 6th with Michael Schaller in 18th and Frank Kalcic flatting out at 19th.
 In the men's open B race Javier Valencia got 27th and Scott Junker rode a single speed to 34th. In the junior 17-18 boys race Brian Kalcic got on the podium in 3rd with Nate Vahlberg also getting 3rd in the boys 13-14 group. In the junior girls Lindsay Schmidt got the teams only win of the day.
