Emily Kachorek (Squid Bikes) and Cody Kaiser (LangeTwins/Specialized) are victors at the NorCalNevada District Cyclocross Championships. Under proverbial “tractor-pull” muddy conditions, the racing for Elite Women and Elite Men came down to the final lap before deciding the outcomes. Ron Shevock (Folsom Bikes) made it a triumvirate of local winners, of sorts, by taking the Single Speed Men race to close out an excellent event and excellent racing.

This season’s District Cyclocross Championships, for NorCalNevada, will run at the LangeTwins Winery on 14 December 2014. The Lodi family vintner’s have hosted a race on the SacCX calendar every year since 2009 and it has become an outstanding event. One wouldn’t necessarily consider a winery as an ideal venue…this one is located in the low-lying, flat central valley and typically beer is the sport’s beverage of choice…yet somehow the Lange family and the Sacramento/Lodi cyclocross community have cultivated this race into one of the best in the entire region.

Cody Kaiser has been a member of Cal Giant/Specialized for such a long time that it became a common and expected sight of the NorCal rider in familiar Giant Berry-red. As a cyclocross racer, “Kid” Kaiser has competed internationally and nationally but also locally; it was always gratifying for the region to see him cranking around courses at SacCX, CCCX, or BASP. Yet now the local bicycle-racing community needs to become familiar with one of its favorite sons wearing a different livery. Getting older happens to even the best and young Cody Kaiser has aged-out of Cal Giant’s under-23 programme.
