The grind up 84 commenced and...

    Pesky District Championships

    The Pesky podium photo, which doubles for the District Championship, kinda sums up the NorCal men’s scene right now. Cal Giant on top, flanked by two Marc Pro-Strava fellas,  with Yahoo oddly awkwardly standing to the side… and then there is a Webcor presence hanging in the background.  Jesse Moore took his second District...

Jane Despas (Yahoo) started things off to stretch her legs.  Alison Starnes (PB2012) and Flavia Oliveria (Wells Fargo) quicky responded and got a good gap (~1min) on the much reduced...
