Race #5 – Laguna Seca 2016

Race Report: 

Race #5 May 7th, 2016

ECHS competed in the NorCal league finals at Laguna Seca Saturday, the 4.5 mile course had almost 700’ of climbing per lap, most of which was done on the famous Hurl Hill. This is one of the toughest courses in the NorCal league, but every ECHS rider was able to finish (despite one rider having to walk his bike 4 miles up Hurl Hill!) Freshmen and Sophomores did 2 laps, JV girls did 3 laps, and JV boys did 4.

This was the last NorCal race of the season before State Championships, wrapping up the regular 2015-2016 season for ECHS. Congratulations to everyone who raced over the season and we’ll see you at States!
