Big fun and good times were the name of the game on Saturday Night in Brisbane.  The Bay Area Super Prestige Night Race is epic in proportions, and recent rain made the course super sweet.  Dark dirt and smooth lines in most sections greeted riders and laid foundations for a awesome day & night of racing!  Congratulations to Tom & Alec Simpson, and the officials on hand, for their hard work in putting on a very special event for Northern California Cyclocross racing!
It does look like a few of the Elite & Masters divisions are missing from the results, I am sure they will have this sorted out soon...

Congratulations to the top 5 Elite Women at the super popular Brisbane Night Race!

1.- Karen Brems- Team Rambuski Law
2.- Sarah Bamberger- Rat Ballz
3.- Ellen Sherill- Bike Station Aptos
4.- Kathleen Hannon- Freewheel/Hunter Cycles
5.- Gina Hall- California Giant/Specialized

Next up for NCNCA Cyclocross is Golden Gate Park hosting next weekend's racing events of the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships. 
This event is going to be off the hook....
Wild and crazy Cyclocross will be the name of the game for this Single Speed World Championship weekend of racing and fun.

Golden Gate Park is one of the finest venues for Cyclocross in Northern California.  It will be invaded by party animals primed to race their Cross bikes...
All regular divisions of geared racing will have events, such as Masters, Juniors, "B" & "C" Men & Women.  Then the main event Single Speed races will take center stage, so get ready to scream and cheer cause
un-official World Championship statues is on the line!
It is going to be amazing!  San Francisco will be the epicenter of Cyclocross next weekend, and Murphy Mack has guaranteed good times to be had by all...

Nor-Cal Cyclocross racing has always produced standout Junior level Cross racers.  A select few have went on to claim the Junior National Cyclocross Championship title, like Jim Gentes & Cody Kaiser.
Now, Tobin Ortenblad appears to be next in line for being labeled a Junior sensation from Nor-Cal. 
Tobin won the Men's Elite race at the CCCX Series last weekend, and backed that up with a stellar 2nd place at the Exergy USGP Of Cyclocross in Louisville Ky. in the Junior division this past Sunday! 

Ortenblad is also the reigning Nor-Cal High School MTB XC Champion.

Congratulations Tobin on your outstanding racing accomplishments, and hoping the best is still to come...
