Mt. Diablo is Conquered

This past Sunday, the Diablo Challenge, otherwise known as the Bay Area World Climbing Championship, took place. For those few of you who don’t know, Mt. Diablo is a 3300 foot climb that takes place over 10.8 miles. It is one of the landmarks of the San Francisco Bay Area. There were approximately 1000 participants in this mass start hillclimb. AthletiCamps athletes did extremely well in this event, taking 3 of the top 5 spots! One of our coaches, Dave Levine, came in 5th with a time of 48:16. In 3rd place was first timer Jonny Moskowitz at 47:22. And, last but not least, Brad Hillebrandt came in 2nd place with a time of 47:15, just 5 seconds away from first place. Congratulations to these athletes and their cycling coaches, Bruce Hendler and Matt Larson, on their outstanding performances.

Sattley District TT Course Paved

Good news for our district, as our time trial course up in Sattley is finally being paved after all these years. The course has been slowly deteriorating for some time now, having major stress cracks. The pavement project goes from Highway 49 to the Plumas county line. After the county line, the road improves.

Great news and motivation for next year.
