Cats Hill Criterium - A true Classic

Great racing on Saturday at the legend Cats Hill. Jackson Stewart overcame a last corner 4 bike length deficit from the great Fabrice Dubost to win. The race was aggressive from the gun and featured many strong teams such as BMC, Bissell, Mountain Khakis, Webcor, and Cal Giant.

Webcor's Justin Fraga is back from a horrible crash at NRC race Merco earlier this year. Justin loves the feel of the 19's.

Rand Miller doing his "always aggressive" thing. Rand is testing some new 58 full carbon tubulars. I hope this picture gives you an idea of how steep the Cats Hill climb is. Crazy hard to get up it.
Jackson Stewart, Steve Reaney and the Great Frenchie Fabrice Dubost. Fabrice attacked hard on the climb last lap and gapped the field by 4 bike lengths only to get pipped on the line by Jackson and Steve. Fabrice was the strongest rider today and proved it by being in almost every move and still have the juice to put in a crazy strong solo move at the end. I absolutely love the way this guy races. He is not afraid to lay it down. did this picture of Little Aiden get in here? Love this little guy!!
