Not much to say about this one. Mt. Hamilton is a favorite climb; 4,200 feet from the Easter Edge of San Jose. The race goes over the top spirals down a technical descent on the other side and then winds it way through the remote backcountry along Mines Road to Livermore. Sunday I drove up early. The valley was shrouded in low lying cloud but that disappeared half way up, replaced by clear blue sky and bright sun. I scouted a good hairpin a mile below the summit. It had a clear view down the valley so I could see the racers approaching, and plenty of angles coming and going. When the pro field arrived it was Bissell Pro Paul Mach off the front. He ended up 2nd on the day, bested by teammate Andy Jacques Maynes (Benjamin Jacques Maynes finished 4th). A good day for Bissell.
