The NorCal Classic: Nevada City

Photo By Scott Le
I’m hoping Hernando pipes with some of his bike race poetry on the Nevada City Classic since he’s been popping up in Facebook pictures from the race all day. Summer finally arrived just in time to punish the faithful who were willing to trek up to the Sierra’s in a field that was noticeably missing a disgraced, or almost disgraced, former tour winner such as Lance or Landis.

Men’s Race

Fittingly the 51st edition of the men’s race was won by Ian Boswell (Trek-Livestrong) who first put his stamp on this race in 2010 with a win for his former Bissell Team. Cal-Giant’s Evan Huffman slotted in for second followed by Nate English (Yahoo.) A relative of Huffman (his mom maybe, okay… that’s kinda funny, i have to call Rand to get a mom joke for this tomorrow) has been posting twitter updates from local road races and they are great. Follow @Regulorry on twitter for good race updates and insight into a cyclists life.

The NorCal regulars Kachorek, Breen, Thurston, were joined by Katerina Nash who always crashes the race parties held up in the Sierras. Nash and the trio of regulars did some damage to the pack, and after punishing roadies for an hour, Nash took her World Cup cx winning self and shot around the course for the win. More details as they roll in.
