What a Weekend!

The biggest weekend of the Northern California CX season has just passed, and boy was it a doozy. Riders travelling from all corners of the country for the final two events of the US Gran Prix of Cyclocross were greated with the type of gorgeous weather we've come to expect here and nowhere else during cyclocross season. Regardless of the weather, the Velo Bella and Pilarcitos folks put together a couple of tough and fun courses that were enjoyed by all (except maybe Dave Carr ;-) ). Barry Wicks and Lynn Bessette sealed their victories in the overall series (both riders won Saturday), but the Men's and Women's finales were won by Todd Wells and Wendy Simms, both of whom have been knocking at the door the last few weeks. Excluding new arrival Wicks, Nor-Cal riders didn't factor as prominently in the results as we might have hoped, with Cal Giant's Andy Jacques-Maynes the lone Elite Nor-Cal rider in the men's top 10, Barbara Howe and Christine Vardaros traded turns taking 4th both days, and Melodie Metzger squeaked in the top 10 on Sunday.
