Shelly Olds and Justin Robinson Scorch the Stick

Shelly Olds and Justin Robinson each prevailed in the 2nd race of the Pilarcitos Bay Area Super Prestige Series at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The Pilarcitos boys put together a humdinger of a course that featured crazy-fast flats with crazy-technical corners and dismounts/remounts. In the Women's A Race, saw a tight battle between Rachel Lloyd and Shelly Olds, with Olds (HRS/Rock Lobster) taking the win after Lloyd suffered a couple of dropped chains, with Stella Carey holding on to the 3rd spot. Mike Hernandez put together a great report on the race - thanks Mike! Congratulations to Shelly for her first big win in a BASP race.

The Men's race saw Justin Robinson (Cal Giant) cooly ride away from a group of five riders, with Josh Snead and Mark Noble rounding out the top 3. I put together a report from my experience here.

The Masters 35+ event saw yet another tight race, with Steve Reaney (Cal Giant) outsprinting Alan Coates, and Henry Kramer finishing 3rd.

Other winners included Jeremy Blalock (Juniors - Ventana MTB's), Rob "Buckwheat" Meighan (M45+ - Willow Glen Bikeshop), John Elgart (M55+ - Webcor/Alto Velo), and Cathy Crawford-Walle (M35+ Women - Nor Cal Velo). Results are posted here, also check ou the race reports blog for more photos and reports.
