I was delighted to see Natascha Badmann out on the course. The forty-five year-old Swiss Miss has won this race SIX times, and her sixth place this year, at her age, is amazing. She is an inspiration. She's still riding the 650c Cat Cheetah she rode for several of her world titles.
Fireworks erupted at Oceanside when Andy Potts and Jesse Thomas came down to a sprint finish. On the women's side, Heather Jackson put the hurt down with her blistering run to take the win. Check out our supersized race-day gallery inside.
