WA State Cyclocross Championships

Team Stanley had a notable day today with Zack on the podium with a solid 3rd place in the Cat 4/35+ race,
and Doug Reid bringing home the gold in the Elite 35+ race. Doug was so fast he caught all but 5 or so of the Elite Open field from a minute back! I think he could have podiumed in the Open race today.

Today’s course had LOTS of low-speed turns, and the guys with snappy acceleration had a distinct advantage over guys like me who need to dish out a million watts and take forever to get their big mass back up to speed.

The weather was delightful, although a little cold for Zack’s 9:30 race….brrrrr….

Niels represented in the Open 3s, I didn’t see the results, but he seemed to be enjoying himself with a big smile every time I saw him.
