The 2nd Franz Bakery crit along with the 2nd Pringle Creek Circuit Race filled our weekend, and good times had by all at both. Some actual summer weather serenaded both races, and we made hay while the sun shone.
Franz Bakery was capped off by 1/2 wins in BOTH men’s and women’s fields with Trevor Spahr and Ace Christiansen respectively. Great rides all. Alexandria Schultz started warming the podium with an earlier 3rd in the W4′s race with Sharon Sandoval. We had 3′s and 4′s in the mix as well for the men, with both squads turning in solid rides. Penner, Carver, Thompson, Crawfy, Koller, Crouch, McCoy, Walle, Levo, Whitley, and Barker. Undoubtedly the best smelling race on the earth. That may sound funny, but it’s true. We were proud to kick in some cash and Ironclad schwag to support this fun (read: masochistic) race, and were happy to get such great results.
Pat Malach of course has in depth coverage and photos right HERE.
Leonard at Hot Foot has a pile of photos as well, and those are here.
Catherine Cooper had her camera with her, and has cool images here as well.

And Sunday a smaller pod of us went down to the Pringle Creek Circuit Race, which was a really painful treat. Cool course, great weather, great roads. And we were given the privilege of riding in the Jim Henry Memorial Lap earlier in the morning. Birthday racer Mark Crawford highlighted the day with a fine 3rd place in the masters overall (2nd in his age group), so a podium placing on your day of earth entry is somewhat rad, wouldn’t you say?
We have some Pringle Creek images here.
