Despite oppressive heat, snapped derailleur hangers, and little sleep, the Santa Cruz Factory Racing Team had outstanding results at the 27th Annual Keyesville Classic March 28 and 29.
Team Captain Scott Chapin stole the show, winning the All Mountain Stage Race in the Pro Men’s category after placing second in the Short Track, fourth in the Super D, and eighth in the Cross Country. His aqua blue Santa Cruz Highball was in good company on the podium, with Joe Doty winning the All Mountain Stage Race in the Pro Men’s Single Speed category and Chris Laveque, a first time racer and the owner of team sponsor El Salchicero, taking the title in the All Mountain Stage Race in the Beginner Men’s category.
