Dear BMR sponsors,

We are on the home stretch now, of our '06/'07 cyclocross campaign. Coyote Point proved to be as exciting as expected, and we were dealt an even hand in the team with both good and bad luck. First and foremost, congratulations to Pat for clinching the silver medal in the District Championship Single Speed event, as well as the silver medal in the overall for the Bay Area Superprestige series. As luck (bad) would have it, I experienced my only major mechanical incident at the worst possible moment, causing me to lose an almost insurmountable point gap from 3rd to 4th place in the season-long battle for the masters' overall placings. Such is racing cross in NorCal- one of the most competitive areas in the country.
We also welcome Janel back to the heat of competition. Janel has now completed 6 events in a row since finishing her chemo treatments, and has risen higher into the rankings with each race. At this past weekend's CCCX final event, Janel had her strongest showing with a super solid 5th place. Although too far behind in her form to race in Mol, Belgium, Janel will of course, be accompanying the team for fun and support.
Stay tuned for race reports from the Masters Cyclocross World Championships, coming to you from Mol, Belgium- the motherland of the sport!

Thank you all for your continued support of Blackmarket Racing.
