Lion of Fairfax Race Report

From Brian Bruckner:

Warm weather greeted those racers coming out for the third annual Lion of Fairfax cyclocross race this past weekend in Fairfax in Marin County. Course changes for this year included an improved start / finish area on the grassy section of the "Lefty Gomez" field, addition of several hairpin turns on the grass field, as well as hoppable barriers for the Elite Men's event. Fields for this year's event were a bit smaller, probably due to the fact that the Mt. Tam Hill Climb saw a last minute rescheduling to the same day as the LOF. Despite the smaller turnout, the competition was fierce!

In the Elite Men's event, a lead trio formed by Andy Jacques-Maynes, Josh Snead and Justin Robinson formed relatively quickly. With 3 laps to go, Andy hit the gas hard, leaving Snead and Robinson to battle it out for 2nd, with Robinson ultimately passing Snead for the 2nd spot. Rachel Lloyd handily won the Elite Women's event, for the third year in a row, followed by Kristin Drumm and Melissa Schultz. Gannon Myall took top honors in the Master 35 A's followed by Jordi Cortes and Glen Rawlinson. And in the 45+ A's, It was George Hope, followed by Logan Kelsey and a newly upgraded Tom Fox finding his way to 3rd place.

A huge thanks to everyone who came out - this race is 100% a fundraiser and every penny of proceeds goes to help the school fund items not covered by government budgets. Excuse the raw format of our results -we did not have a volunteer to type everything up, but we were able to post them at the event immediately after the races. See you next year...

PS Brian sent ms a PDF scan of the raw results sheets which you can view here... -Funke

Do you think they will post the final results or link to the photos that were being taken at the race?

Well, those are the final results, I think. Above each roster is the score sheet with rider numbers - look up the rider number in the roster below the sheet to see how you finished.

If you want to type it up, I'm sure Brian would appreciate it ;-)
I don't think he has plans to type it up to get it online...
