    People are getting into the spirit of this years Cal Cup.   First off we got a first class update on the women’s race from “Happy” who sent a quick report through the comments section.

    San Ardo Women

    Well San Ardo w 1/2/3 race had a strong showing of RED Racing. Its great to see some many people excited to race in August. Where is everyone else?!?! It started with a monster attack from Trish Black (RED Racing) who found herself off the front for about 30 miles. Jane Despas and April Hamlin did a lot of the chasing to bring her back. Once she was caught RED launched more attacks and a counter got Christine Riker away through the last lap. Christine stayed away for the win since the field was tired of working to bring people back. Into the finish Michelle Melka (RED Racing) sprinted first to the line followed closely by Rikke Preisler (metromint), Mary Maroon (webcor) and Jane Despas (yahoo).

    Red Racing just worked everyone over with superior numbers till they cracked. They brought a gun to a knife fight and decided to use it, good for them!  Gotta deploy the nukes at some point right?  Red has had a good second half of the year so hopefully they carry that momentum into 2012.

    Cal Cup Standings
    Trying to figure out the standings for Cal cup probably requires access to Stonehenge and the ancient knowledge of the Druids but everybody likes to give it a shot. “Happy” piped in with their best guess which looks pretty close except I would put Annie Fulton in second or third after her win at University.

    W1/2/3 cal cup calculator. these are not official because there are no official cal cup results. but…from my math after san ardo here’s the list. Mary Maroon (webcor) takes over the 3rd spot

    Jane Despas (yahoo)- 63
    Michelle Melka (RED Racing) – 46
    Mary Maroon (webcor) – 38
    Jane Robertson (metromint) – 26
