When I arrived in Bend it looked like this...
This is the view many of Northern California's best Cyclocross racers are getting upon arrival in Bend, Oregon for this weeks USA Cyclocross National Championships.
Racing in the snow and rain can not be that bad, can it? We will see as the competitions begin!
In action today is-
Miss Mary Perez- Women B Race
Kathleen Boyle- Women B Race
Haley Juno-Galdes- Women B Race
Karch Miller- Men 10-29 B Race
Dean Poshard- Men 30-39 B Race
Tom Feix- Men Masters 40+ B Race
Jim Gentes- Men Masters 40+ B Race
Shawn Miller- Men Masters 40+ B Race
Jeff Sobul- Men Masters 40+ B Race
Jeff Traugott- Men Masters 40+ B Race
Lots of chances for success from Nor-Cal in this group. One rider who stands out is
Tom Fiex(Peninsula Velo). Fiex, pictured below, has been on fire recently with his form and he has had a standout season racing in the Masters 45+ division. Fiex has produced many outstanding rides this year, and I have a feeling today could be another fine result for the fast riding Fiex.
