Pilarcitos #1 and News from "Glosta"

Helluva day at Hellyer yesterday for the Pilarcitos Bay Area Super Prestige kick-off. Many of the elite were back East but it seems everyone else in Nor-Cal was at the race. In the Men's A race Mark Noble rode away from the field, and Mike Hernandez having a fine ride in second. The Women's race saw the return of Rachel Lloyd, tho apparently she had her hands full with Shelly Olds much of the race, and Stella came in a solid 3rd. Steve Reaney won an exciting M35+ race. See the Pilarcitos Results as well as the Race Reports Blog for other reports.

Back East, many of the Nor-Cal Elite were dicing it up at USGP#1 in the annual Gloucester weekend that East Coasters have taken to call "East Coast Nationals" (Day One, Day Two). Looking at the results this has to be the deepest Elite field I've seen in a non-Natz race, with some damn fast guys getting LAPPED, even. Anyhow, the Nor-Cal gang were there in force with Ben and Andy Jacques-Maynes, and Sarah Kerlin having solid top 10 performances both days.
