Karen won the Sierra Point Repechage CX in the Women A category after placing 2nd the night before at the Sierra Pt. night race. She was also 2nd at SuperPro CX #2 and Surf City CX #2. Here is her report:
Day 2 at Sierra point is the Repechage held on Sunday on the same course in the reverse direction. Fields are generally much smaller and spectators consist only of racers in other categories. The forecast was for rain, which I was not really looking forward to (at least not looking forward to all the cleanup required after a rainy race!). I was thinking about skipping the 2nd day, but in the BASP races, call-ups are always based on the prior race, so if I skip are race, I lose my front row start. It is a good race close to home too, so 12 hours after I left on Sat. I was back!
Dirk has been leading the weekly Egan ride for many years now. Every Tues. evening in the summer, he leads riders up short hills around Los Altos that most people have never heard of. But yes, every one of them is a Strava segment! Hammer the hills, recover in between - the interval ride for people who don't like intervals. Every week the route is diffferent. The ride has grown over the years and typically draws around 20 riders. It has drawn a number of riders into the club.
Justin Thompson, racing in the Elite 3's as part of Alto Velo Racing Team (AVRT) delivered several very impressive results in August en route to taking 2nd place in the Cal Cup Standings. Justin took 1st Place at the Winters Road Race taking the victory solo after distancing himself from the remainder of the small breakaway that formed only 2 miles into the 72 mile race. Justin delivered a very impressive 2nd place result the week before at the impossibly tough University Road Race from a shattered field that had huge gaps everywhere. Other notable results in August were a 4th place at the Dunnigan Hills Road Race by winning the field sprint behind a 3 man breakaway (Won by AVRT - Blaise Hamel), and strong 8th place finish at the Vacaville Grand Prix.
