MarkZen wins the 30+ 1,2,3 circuit race!!! Yeah babay!!!
He and some climber dude chased down a solo guy at the end and dropped him, then MarkZen lit him up in the sprint and won easily.
...and that's not his only podium in the last couple days... He got a 3rd in the 30+ 1,2,3 road race yesterday after being in a long five-man break that stretched its lead out to a couple of minutes. He came in just ahead of long-time pro Mark McCormack. (Also, one of the five in the break was a Spine guy who flatted ...Mark didn't know who it was but I'd guess Hutchinson)
Sea Otter results are here.
I haven't heard the stories that go with them but other local results include:
C-Walk winning the 40+ 1,2,3 and Chris Wire getting 2nd for the second week in a row. Boyer 3rd, Stetina 4th, Henri 5th.
Junior Grant Van Horn finally bagged a win at Sea Otter after a couple of frustrating 2nds in the last couple years. Look out Europe, here he comes!
Pops Larsen got a bronze in the 40+ 4s and TnA finished 17th.
And Jason got 3rd in the open 4s. Surely that's enough points now for an upgrade...
Feel free to add (or correct) any Sea Otter news with a comment or two. I'm down at the other end of the state missing the action, so I'd love to hear more updates!
