Trick or Treat....

Keeping it fun was the continuing theme over the weekend for Nor-Cal Cyclocross with two races in Fresno and
the Surf City event at Aptos High School.

Special thanks to Aptos High Principal, and stellar all- around cyclists Casey O'Brien for his commitment to Cyclocross racing for both Juniors & Adults.

The Surf City courses at Aptos High School are always memorable and demanding! David Gill, Jeff Clark, Mike Evans, Team Santa Cruz, and a host of other volunteers keep Surf City fun and challenging for all.
Congratulations on a great event!
Below are the names of a few stellar division winners from Surf City #1, plus some photos from the Halloween Costume race.

Elite winners at Surf City/Aptos High were
Karen Brems(Team Rambuski Law)
and Aaron Bradford(Bay101/HRS/Rock Lobster).

Amy Goldstein(Bicycle Trip) was the Women's 35+ race winner.
While Don Myrah(Ibis/ was the 35+ "A" Masters Men winner.

45+ "A" race victories went to Teri Reilly from Clayton
 and John Mundelius(Cal. Giant/Specialized).

Daniel Valesco won the "A" Single Speed division.

Junior race winners were Maddie Ortenblad(Family Cycling Center),
Jackson Rhodes(Freewheel/Hunter), and
Matt Schaupp(Spokesman).

Fresno's "Lou-Fest"
$500 Cash payout for Elite Men riders at the famous "Lou Fest" Night Cyclocross Race equals big smiles for the top 5 overall...
Bruno Pitton, Jeremiah Root, Steve Ray, Keith DeFiebre, John Stewart.

The "Lou Fest" truly is a classic Cross race in the NCNCA. 
It is with out a doubt one of the most
technically demanding courses on the Nor-Cal circuit. 

Mix in darkness, heckler crazy drama, Belgium Beer flowing, mandatory lights required for each racer , and more off camber sections then you can shake a Witches Broom at, and you get a real night Cyclocross race where good times are had by all.
