Official White Hill CX Race Report

October 28th 2006

Things fell in place nicely for the fist ever White Hill Middle School Benefit Cyclo-Cross race, in Fairfax. Race organizers were up late Friday night, and up early Saturday morning putting the finishing touches on what proved to be a challenging and stimulating course. Tom Simpson and Company at Pilarcitos Cycle Sports generously donated the use of their equipment, a priceless contribution. Special thanks also to Julia at Paradigm Cycles for her support as well as the rest of the Proman / Paradigm Elite women's team. Other contributors included Cliff and Noah's bagels.

Josh Snead and Simon Vickers of the Rock Lobster squad were at the front of the Elite men's field most of the race, with Snead pulling off the win. Local Rachel Lloyd (Proman / Paradigm Cycles) put in her typical performance with a solid win - coming in close behind was Shelly Olds. Jordi Cortes put in a strong performance to take the Masters 35+ A men's race. Mountain biking matriarch Jacquie Phelan put in a solid performance in the elite women's race. Richard Blanco 1 speeded his way to victory in the single speed event.

34 kids mounted up and sampled their first taste of Cyclo-Cross, doing a complete lap of the 1.5 mile course, including a fairly brutal run up. Tommy Breeze took the 13 and over win, followed closely by Kamaron Rathod and Keenan Pope. In the 9-12 yr old category - Riley Venne and Mick Bruckner of Big Swingin' Cycles took one - two with Dwight Scales rounding out the podium. In the 8 and under category - Stefan Venne and Sam Bruckner (Big Swingin' Cycles) were followed closely by Riley Moore.

Organizers and the school community were so pleased with the inaugural event, things are already in the works for next year's event, which is tentatively scheduled for the last weekend in September.
