Norcal Natz Wrap Up - Rachel 3rd in Elites, Andy and Sarah Strike Masters Gold Again

Congratulations to Rachel Lloyd (Cal Giant Strawberries) for scoring a Bronze medal in the Women's Elite race, as well as to Sarah Kerlin (HRS Rocklobster) and Andy Jacques-Maynes (Specialized/KMC/Cal Giant), who have each brought home Masters National Champion jerseys to their collections from the 2008 US National Cyclocross Championships in Kansas City. Rachel hung tough to finish within a minute of winner Katie Compton and just 10 seconds behind 2nd placed Georgia Gould. Jacques-Maynes (Masters Men 30-34) and Kerlin (Masters Women 35-39) each took commanding wins in their respective races. Also notable was Andy's 7th place behind winner Ryan Trebon in the Men's Elite race on Sunday.

Update: I just learned that SCCCC rider Ron Riley got bumped up to 1st in his category instead of 2nd as the results had listed.

Other Northern California Podiums (note: 5 Silver Medals!):

Cody Kaiser - 4th Junior Men 17-18
Josie Jacques-Maynes - 4th Master Women 30-34
Justin Robinson - 5th Master Men 30-34
Beverly Chaney - 2nd Master Women 45+
Mark Noble - 2nd Master Men 45-49
Henry Kramer - 2nd Master Men 50-54
John Elgart - 2nd Master Men 60+
Ron Riley - 1st Master Men 70+

Congratulations to you all!

Please stay tuned for more (hopefully first-hand) Natz recaps.

Hold the phone, folks, Ron Riley (SCCCC Team Santa Cruz) won the Master Men 70-74 race! There were two riders originally registered but the officials moved the other guy up to the 75+ category.
