Third Place - Kid Concussion
"Who was in front of me when I went down."
Answer - The Tifosi and the Burly , that's who !!


And now a recap of the last stage

Everyone has CROSS-FEVER


Sepia Cross



Ha Ha Ha , look that Mexican is still trying to do cyclocross.
Give it up already.


Tramp Stamp



" That Wayne , he's such a fuckin' tool."


The Pusher Man


That is a very light front wheel. Tim must have one at any cost.


We had a nice turnout despite the weather ( 25 ). Some were forced to show up by Wayne.

That is not a tumor


Some of the best hand-ups you will ever see. Thanks to our sponsors , the U S Armed Forces, PYOC and The Napa Valley Wine Growers in a Box Association( NVWGBA ).


You can check out more of the Reilly Press bandit series pics at


And that is it. We had 9 races in 2009. Maybe even more in 2010.



I just wanted to say "Thanks" for all the cx races. They have been everything a cx race should be, tough and fun. Best of all are the people, both racers and fans.
