My my, how fast weather can change, which is rare to say in Southern California. The women's Sunset Loop stage was sunny and mild. 3 hours later and the western sky looks like a scene from Something Wicked This Way Comes. You remember that movie right? They showed it on rainy days in elementary school, I used to hate it, gave me the heebies. Anyways, dark skies were coming and it was not looking too promising for the men. Needless to say the mens field got obliterated after the rain started. Much respect to the guys still making it downtown to the finish line. As always, a big thank you to all the teams making it to Redland's and racing your hearts out. It's amazing to have such talented riders race in our little old city. Congratulations to Megan Gaurnier and Phil Gaimon for holding their leads throughout the entire race.
