Ran into a very proud father, Curt Ferguson, on Alpine Road today (on his twenty five mile commute on a fixie!) and he told me his son, Jeremy Ferguson, of Rocklin, CA, was invited to Geoff Proctor's Eurocross Camp 2007. Follow some of his exploits here.
Hanan Alves-Hyde was kind enough to share some insights and photos from her and her co-conspirators about their recent trip to Los Angeles. Thanks Hanan!

I went about three years ago, but for some reason they didn't let me do the LOT session so I had to ride with a bunch of stinky guys so it wasn't nearly as much fun as Hanan, Sabine, Karla, Jen, Beth and Alicia had this past weekend:
One 100K scratch race.

Really big turnout for track at this time of the year - about forty A's and ten C's. I think having it on a holiday helped a bit.

Do not trade bikes with a teammate.
This is why Danny Summerhill got DQ'ed at the USGP in New Jersey on November 18.
My WAG is that this is to prevent a rider from having a tag team of virtual mechanics on the course.
This rule applies to everyone in every category but is more likely to happen to someone who gets used to not having this rule enforced at a low key local event and moves up and starts racing at a higher level and finds out the hard way.
There will be an upcoming track points race series with one before each World Cup. (It's a winter sport in the Northern Hemisphere...) These are being held to help prepare our local representatives Shelley Olds and Dave McCook from the Proman Team prepare for their World Cup races. First one is planned for November 23 - http://www.ridetheworldcups.com/
