Coyote Point Rant

In fact, I have nothing bad to say about this course... wide, clean, tricky in spots, fast in spots, something for everyone. Great way to end the Pilarcitos series. Thanks Tom & Co. Though I must note, it's now December and there's still been no mud of any kind anywhere...

Hernandez can have mine. My breeding days are so over...I loved the course on Saturday. Those Pilarcitos boys and girls are wonderful.

Ths Sunday event at Coyote Pt. was a fine version of some formula one cross. Lots of fast turns that still required skill - a great balance of sand, pavement, small climbs - and a rippin descent that put a smile on my face - and no funeral march ascents. Too bad the series is over. Time to drive down to Ft. Ord now. Thank you Tom Simpson and Co. for a great series.

Friday during course set-up the section after the barricades was in lovely greasy, slippery shape. Then, saturday....that terrible cold wind dried everything up - and knocked down finish line fence and other assorted natural ailments. Nuts. I'm going to Holland and import some righteous goo.

One can only hope Tom runs into Adri VDP and can talk him into coming over and setting up a real "championship" course or at least the famed "Euro" course we need so bad? Tom, thanks for yet another stellar season of Pilacitos Cx. You da man!!

Tom- Thank you for another wonderful season of the most professionally run races around. You make every racer feel like a pro- right on down to the beginners. And thank you and your medical staff for the speedy attention to Janel on Sunday. Her high-speed mishap landed her in the operating room, but after a lot of Percocet, 7 hours of waiting in the ER, and many pep-talks, she is ready to finish the season out at CCCX. Your staff and program ARE the well oiled cross machine of NorCal! Much appreciation.

Tom,

Thanks for a great Super Prestige Series. Coyote Point was soooo much fun especially Sunday with the triple barrier sand run! You guys always put on a fantastic event. I look forward to your road events next year the Ronde, Burlingame, etc.... oh, and of course... CX 2006!
