    Pre-Otter Results 3/31/07 Arcata

    The first Short-Track race of the NorCal State Championship Series came off well Saturday. Rain overnight caused us to take out a newly built section of singletrack. Using that new section would have ruined it and put silt into the creek. Sooooo, we spent part of the morning rerouting things and still ended up with a 1.25 mile course.

    The Pro race was the best show of the day, with Carl Hesselein and John "Fuzzy" Mylne going off the front early and staying neck and neck for the rest of the race. Going into the final climb Hesslein used his gearie versus Fuzzy's single-speeder to pulled alongside Fuzzy. Hesselein clicked through the gears to power by a spun-out Fuzzy on the next straight, pulling a bike-length by the final corner where the Fuzzster did a banzai inside move that put him even with Hesselein for the sprint to the finish. It was too close to call and we had to go to the photo...it was Carl Hesselein by about six inches to take the CA$H, the pair of Kenda Tires, the pair of Sock Guy socks, the gold medal and the series points.

    I was looking forward to some of the NorCal series races... I guess i can wait.

    What the hell is Mike Pigg doing racing Sport !?!

    He used to race (and win) expert back in the earlier days of the Bigfoot Classic. I don't wanna (sandbagger) jump to any (sandbagger) conclusions, but...

    It was a good race. Semi-mudfest through a forrested cow pasture. I got a chance to taste cow poo for the first time. They also gave away at least 15 pairs of tires.

    It was my wife's first race, and she took first as the only beginner woman. She's all proud of her golden top cap...which was a great idea.

    Looking forward to some pictures.

    Will there be team rankings

    Is there going to be a team competition for the series? If so how can we sign up?
