Just the FIAC Jack


Congratulations to Sarah Kerlin for winning the FIAC National Championships today in Watsonville. She even did it without her purple tail and horns.

The women's race was a 4 woman affair until Sarah broke away near the end of the race for the win. A surging Lauren Constantini was secondand Stella Carey (with gears) was 3rd.

The men's race saw the first time this season that Andy and Ben faced each other. By the end of the first lap they had already established a gap on Justin. Ben launched a few attacks and soon was off and cruised in for a pretty good margin over Andy. Justin won the crowds though as he never had to get off his bike. Not only did he hop the running barriers, he also hopped and rode the run ups. The USGP organizers in the house did take note...

Henry Kramer outlasted a duel with infrequent but strong racer, Bryan Miller to take the win in the Masters 35+. Early leaders Rich Maile and Alan Coats succumbed to a rolled tire and a stiff back respectively. Rich rolled off for a DNF and Alan salvaged a 3rd.

Congrats also to Bella, Andi Mackie for winning the Women 35+. Other bellas in the house included Cheryl Hennessey, Julie Starling, Betty Jordan, Amy Abele and Alyse Weyman.

Otherwise it was a pretty low key day. A fun fast, but long course, and DJ Grant on the speakers led to another pleasant day of cx fun and friends. If only I had remembered the battery for my camera.

Fortunately, John Blankfort did not forget his batteries. Check out his pics here
