    It was nice in Menlo Park and apparently some roads in Copperopolis were repaved.  A good day all around.

    Menlo Park Grand Prix

    Despite an active race driven by Touchstone and Vanderkitten veteran pro Liza Rachetto played it smart and unleashed a big sprint for the win.  Race video has the women’s sprint and a quick interview with Liza.

    Rand unleashed “Big Pink” and despite a stacked field (with the likes of Logan Loader, Wholberg, and other crit specialists like McCook) – “Big Pink”  must have brought some luck to the Webcor squad.  After being active in several early breaks Webcor took the win putting Brian Bucholz across the line first.  What could be more awesome than Rand now being called Big Pink.  All. The. Time.


    Word is the streets of Copperopolis are paved with gold, or at least some of them have been repaved. Webcor’s Bec Werner proved she’s the real deal and took the win in her first NorCal Robaix.  BJM played spoiler in the men’s race and proved Levi ain’t the only pro that can put the hurt on in the central valley.

      Repaved? If you mean “added even more patches to the bit on the back side” sure, I guess. Otherwise, seemed like more potholes than the past few years. Perfect day though, lots of good racing.
