CXLA Night Race
Photos from the Bay Area Super Prestige night race in Brisbane, CA.
Warm and dusty conditions have persisted into November for NorCal crossers and with the exception of one man-made mudhole the mostly dry and bumpy course had racers adding a few more psi to their tires or risk the consequences.
In the Women’s Elite race Ellen Sherrill (Bicycle Bluebook/HRS) grabbed an early lead over Karen Brems (Team Rambuski Law) and never looked back. It was only a late race traffic jam that caused Sherrill to lose a bit of her margin, but the win was never in doubt. Helene Drumm (Divine Electric), Katie Jay Melena (Bicycle Bluebook/HRS) and Caroline Decendorf (Cycles Fanatic) rounded out the top five.
In the Men’s race Scott Chapin (Bicycle Bluebook/HRS) worked his magic again on the Sierra Point course, roaring away on his Rock Lobster singlespeed to a commanding win. Justin Abbott (Big Swingin’ Cycles), Walton Brush (MASH SF), Ben Jacques-Maynes (Jamis CX) and Alex Work (Bicycle Bluebook/HRS) flanked Chapin on the podium.
