Cross Nationals Thursday Racing Huge Action For NCNCA Athletes.
Aaron Bradford(Family Cycling Center)- pictured below- delivered a outstanding ride in the TT for the starting grid of Thursday's Single Speed Cross Championship. Bradford was 3rd out of 73 riders. The Men's Single Speed race has world class talent in the line up and Bradford showed Nor-Cal style & class in his TT run.
Dean Poshard(Rock Lobster) & Tom Feix(Penn. Velo) each made top 10 placings on day one of Nationals. Congratulations Dean(7th place Men's B) & Tom(10th place Men's B 40+)!

Each of the riders you see in the photos above will be in action Thursday in Bend, Oregon.
Many other Nor-Cal racers will be racing, all with a shot at the podium, and the coveted Stars & Stripes Champions jersey.
Please see this schedule for Thursday's racing and most of the other Nor-Cal riders who will be on course in Bend.
My words of wisdom regarding Thursday's racing at the Cross Nationals in Bend......
Someone from Nor-Cal is going to ride great & claim the precious Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal!
Ride Safe & Have Fun!
