There Will Be Mud

The annual party and cyclocross race known as the Peak Season Santa Cruz County Cyclocross Championships went down on Sunday, January 27 at Harbor High School in Santa Cruz.

If you don't have snow, rain or graupel to ride cyclocross bikes over, the next best thing is to compete under sunny skies which is what racers had on Saturday.

The 2013 Harbor High loop designed by Mike Evans and David Gill and constructed by a small but dedicated group of volunteers measured 1.4 miles and 120 feet of climbing. Perfect conditions made for fast lap times. Results are here. Men's Category A winner Tobin Ortenblad, racing for Cal Giant/Specialized, completed an impressive 9 laps in 0:56:27.

Hunter Cycles rider Mark Acker racing in the Master Men 35+ A category finished 9 laps in 1:00:42 and seemed composed around the traffic cones.

When he wasn't scoring races SCCCC Race Team rider David Crum was racing and finished 5th in the Master Men 45+ B category - 6 laps in 0:46:45. Whatever David was looking at during this remount safe to say it was not a traffic cone.
