Nor-Cal's peak season of Cross racing was in full swing this past weekend with Surf City Series & Sacramento Series both firing off outstanding events.

Sacramento Results Here

Sacramento's Men's Elite division had Josh Snead(Bay 101/HRS/Rock Lobster)....

 .... using his superior "bunny hopp" skills to separate himself from the rest of the Elite field.  Snead was on a fantastic day feeling excellent sensations at Laguna Del Sol.  In the end the hard charging Snead produced a very strong solo victory on the day.

Cody Kaiser(Specialized/Cal Giant Inc.) was the 2nd place Elite Men's finisher at Laguna Del Sol.  Congratulations to Cody Kaiser for being selected to the USA Cycling World Championship team in the U23 division!

Cal Giant Inc.'s Jeremy Ferguson was the 3rd place Elite Men's finisher.

Katrina Nash will also be racing at the World Championship Cyclocross race.  Nash has put together a tremendous season of Cross racing at the UCI level, and will be one of the favored riders at World's with a very strong chance at a championship medal!

Nash won the Sacramento Elite Women's race by four and half minutes at Laguna Del Sol.

 Missing Link's Emily Thurston delivered another strong ride near Sac. Town, showing again that she is one of Nor-Cal's top Elite Women Cross racers.  Thurston was the 2nd place Elite Women on Saturday.

Ventana's Sarah Maile was back in the saddle again, coming back in fine form after a thumb injury derailed her Cross season.  Maile was 3rd fastest female at Laguna Del Sol.

Surf City report and photos tomorrow!

CCCX Final & Bakersfield's USA Cycling North/South Challenge next Saturday and Sunday.
