Just had to throw this one up from Shane over at Oregon Velo .

Anyone got the inside scoop on the Cat 3 race "controversy"? I'm guessing it has to do Per Bessje's DQ.

I found a Rubicon rider! Kirk's in California getting fast, he was at the Merco Classic (formerly the McLane-Pacific). 65th.

I don't know about any controversy with the 3. What happened at the finish was a stupid mistake that I am responsible for. Myself, and the two new judges simply miscounted laps. As the field came screaming at us, we were prepared to ring the bell when it becaume painfully obvious that they were sprinting for the finish. We did not record or capture any par tof the finish.
In my panic my first thought was "Do over" and I screamed at the riders to get back together to do another lap. You can only guess at the reaction that received ;-)
Luckily the top 10-15 riders got together with Dave Leahy and came up with the negotiated finish. I was able to get a small sample of the top 5 from a shot that Shane Young did. However the other 65 rider were not placed. It was pure and simple an error on my part

ahh ha,
I was wondering why there were less than 20 finishers in the results. I thought either it was a small field, or everyone got dropped.

That photo makes up for him stacking it in front of me at every cx race last season.

Smack talking while taking the field sprint is high class!

sounds like idle chatter from the couch about a different season. one could find itself angry when filling oneself with a goulash of hormones.
great site....love the local race updates. no one can hide behind the bull crap recap....

I never had a reason to create a google account until now. Please delete that lame crap preceding mine. Talk about hiding behind bullcrap.
