Course was the usual from beginning of bike lane at the bottom to sign and flashing light at the top.  About 1.4 miles and 400 feet of climbing.  Weather was warm, sunny and dry, with perhaps a slight slight headwind at the bottom of the first climb and no wind further up or on the second climb.  Despite the wind on the first climb, Wendy Holbert set a new women's record with a time of 8:48.  

Special thanks to Carol Japp and Cathy McCormick for the timing and to Carol Japp and Dave Hawkes for and shuttling people and stuff up and down the hill.

Awards:
King of Torrey Pines:  
Carl Yee
Queen of Torrey Pines: Wendy Holbert
Handicapped Race Winner: Joshua Richart
Sultan of Sandbagging (for the person with the greatest percentage improvement in time from the time trial to the handicapped race, but may be nullified by race director's judgment):  No Sandbaggers this time!  (Yes Josh was 17 seconds faster on his 2nd climb, but he didn't appear to be sandbagging in the first race.  Maybe he was just better warmed up in the second race.)

Best time of the day:  7:29
Course Records:  Male:  Joshua Richart 7:22.1    Female: Wendy Holbert 8:48 (new record!)
