Photo gallery of elite women, Cat B Women, Master Women 35+ Cat A and elite men’s races of event #1 at Candlestick Park of the Bay Area Prestige Series.

A very hot and dusty day at the ‘Stick to open up the series. In the elite women’s race, Ellen Sherrill (Bicycle Bluebook/HRS/Rock Lobster Cyclocross) took off on the first lap and solo’ed to the win. Masters World Champion Karen Brems (Team Rambuski Law) was second and Kathleen Hannon (Fresh Air/Hunter Cycles).

An early crash on the first lap caused a split in the field in the elite men’s 60-minute race. Continuing on his winning streak, Andy Jacques-Maynes (CalGiant) went to the front early on and then attacked a lap later to win solo. Behind him, CalGiant/Specialized’s Tobin Ortenblad and Cody Kaiser gave chase with Scott Chapin (Bicycle Bluebook/HRS/Rocklobster) and Ben Jacques-Maynes (Bitte/Beard RVO) moving up from back row start. After a bobble and mechanical Ortenblad and Kaiser fell back while Chapin and Ben Jacques-Maynes took up the first chase. The two traded spots until Ben Jacques-Maynes, who was on a singlespeed, made his move in the final laps to take second. (See all results)
