2009 CCCX XC #4 Results

2009cccx4.pngOnce again our friendly correspondent Dusty Downs has the scoop on last weekend's CCCX XC #4:
Greg Heinz (Joselyns/Brunham Coaching) and Mary Ellen-Ash (Sugar CRM) claimed top honors this past weekend at the CCCX XC #4 race held at Toro Park near Monterey. The Toro Park course features a steady climb of 2.5 miles with nearly 1000 feet elevation gained, followed by a ripping descent back down to the start-finish area. Recent trail work by course builder Keith DeFiebre (GT Dirt Coalition) made the route extremely fun to ride with the additions of berms, easy flowing rollers where riders can catch some air, and overall general trail maintenance. Over 180 riders tackled the challenging course. There was also a brand new section of single track trail used near the start finish making Toro Park one of the more scenic courses in Nor-Cal. In the end Heinz and Ellen Ash were strongest on the day. Heinz had to hold off hard charging former World Champion Rob Anderson(Team Specialized Racing), and Chad DeHerra(Willow Glen Bikes) who were 2nd and 3rd in the Pro/Semi Pro Division. While Mary Ellen-Ash outkicked Sharon Hill(Murray/Renaissance) for the win by a mere six seconds at the line. Carolina Villafane(Buy-cell.com) was third in the Women's Pro/Expert Division.
