Race Report - Vail Lake

The 2011 St. Francis Golden Knights

The St. Francis Golden Knights started the 3rd season of the SoCal league with a very successful showing at the Vaikl Lake race. The hard work in the weeks leading up to the race was evident with 8 of the 17 racers finishing in the Top 10 of their racing class.

Families arrived on Saturday for our pre-ride, and then we enjoyed an awesome spaghetti dinner around the camp fire. About half the families camped out overnight. After a long, hard day of racing, the team and families enjoyed the "now famous" St. Francis brunch. Great job guys!

The final results were:

Varsity Boys
Eddy Kronfli - DNF (Broken Wheel)

JV Boys
Matt Misetich - 9th
Christian Breitschwerdt - 10th
Connor Haas - 14th
Steve Shushnar - 22nd
Cameron Aubert - 23rd

Soph Boys
Matt Kubly - 7th
Chris Sercel - 8th
Scott Marshall - 10th
Michael Togneri - 16th
Colby Koklas - 23rd

Frosh Boys
Sean Bird - 6th
