Weekend Wrap-up - Wicks, Lloyd take Surf City Opener

A little late with the weekend wrap-up here...sorry. The Velo Bella crew laid out a fabulous course at Soquel High School for Sunday's Surf City opener. Racers were greeted with perfect racing weather and a challenging course over varied terrain including gravel, dirt, pavement, and even a little grass and featuring many off-camber sections and technical sections. In the Women's race, Rachel Lloyd (Proman/Paradigm) continued her dominance while Sarah Kerlin (Velo Bella/Kona) battled back from early troubles to 2nd, and Josie Beggs (CA Giant Strawberry) was solid in 3rd. In the Men's race, Barry Wicks (Kona) took control early and never looked back, with Ben ( and Andy (CA Giant Strawberry) Jacques-Maynes rounding out the podium. The Master's 35+ saw yet another nailbiter with Henry Kramer (CA Giant Strawberry) taking top honors. The Junior A races were won by Logan Loader and Lainey Aldridge. Congrats to all the winners in all categories...see the official results as well as the Race Reports blog for more reports and photos.

Kudos to Velo Bella for a fun day with great racing, and of course, that great vibe you can only get at a Velo Bella race. Also, great job putting on the Kiddie Kross Kids race, there's the future of our sport right there...

Also, back East there was some UCI action in Maine (Sat, Sun) and Ohio with Christine Vardaros, Joshua Snead, and Chris McGovern all giving good performances.
