Wow... the CCCX Series went off this weekend with Sat. & Sun. racing on a super cool track that was used in both directions over the 2 days of competitions.  

"World Class" talent showed up to have at it.... with reigning U23 National Champion Yannick Eckmann(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized) taking the Men's races both days- with Andy Jacques-Maynes(IBIS/ next best over the two days of racing.  While the Women's races were both won by Meridith Miller(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized) while hard charging Elle Anderson(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized) proved to be second fastest female over the weekend.

Current World Champions from Northern California Karen Brems(Rambuski Law), Don Myrah(IBIS/ and Henry Kramer(Cal. Giant Inc. Specialized) 
all looked extremely sharp to open up the season.  

And of course there is always surprises to the results sheets that keep the racing fresh...
so much fun and so much drama Cyclocross always delivers!

Other riders showing early season form were Tobin Ortenblad(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized), Cody Kaiser(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized), Matt Shriver(Trek CxC), Brian Finnerty(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized), Murray Swanson(Pen Velo), Tim Cannard(IBIS/, Mark Abele(Rock Lobster), Gannon Myall(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized), Mark Howland(Family Cycling Center), Julie Bates(Team Roaring Mouse), Livia Perez(Rock Lobster), and Maddie Ortenblad(Bear Development).

All divisions were hotly contested and it was definitely "Game On" for Nor-Cal Cyclocross.
It is only going to get better and better as the 2013 racing rolls on!
