    Cross Update from Dusty Downs

    Fresh off the press, is Dusty Downs weekend Cross update written in his customary iambic pentameter style.  Looks like Rambuski Law and Rock Lobster continued their domination with wins in both Women’s and Men’s division.

    Keeping it fun was the continuing theme over the weekend for Nor-Cal Cyclocross with two races in Fresno and the Surf City event at Aptos High School. Special thanks to Aptos High Principal, and stellar all- around cyclists Casey O’Brien for his commitment to Cyclocross racing for both Juniors & Adults. JUMP TO FULL ARTICLE ON NCNCA CX
