Watsonville resident and pro cyclist Andy Jacques-Maynes, who competes in cyclocross for CalGiant/Specialized, won the 2012 Central Coast Cyclocross Series season opener at Fort Ord near Monterey on Saturday.

Jacques-Maynes conquered the elite men’s division, completing 10 laps in 1 hour, 3 minutes, 27 seconds for the victory, with Santa Cruz’s Scott Chapin [Bicycleblue book/HRS/Rocklobster] taking second in 1:05:13 and Millbrae’s Keith Hillier [Team Rambuski Law] rounding out the top three in 1:05:51.

Santa Cruz resident Jeff Kendall-Weed was made for speed. He’s proved as much by winning three consecutive Central Coast Series downhill mountain biking competitions, capped with his most recent pro men’s victory Saturday.

Novato’s Ben Cruz was nipping on his heels, so to speak, but Kendall-Weed pulled off the win in 4 minutes, 31.76 seconds to Cruz’s 4:33.36, according to results released early this week. Aromas’ Kiran MacKinnon, a Soquel High grad who represented the United States at the downhill worlds last year, placed third [4:38.18] on the Toro Park course in Salinas.

With Kendall-Weed’s and MacKinnon’s stellar performances this season, the last couple races of the season will carry a lot of weight for the overall title.

There were just three other Santa Cruz County winners. They were as follows: Santa Cruz’s Scott Chapin [Santa Cruz/Fox/Easton] crossed the finish line of the men’s Cat 1 race in 4:41.77, Scotts Valley’s Joel Van Pykeren [unattached] crossed the finish line of the junior boys 18-and-under Cat 3 race in 5:06.83, and Aptos’ Devin Kjaer [Family Cycling Center/FOX] crossed the finish line of the junior boys 13-and-under race in 5:27.90.

The next Central Coast Series X-Fusion Super-D event is scheduled for March 18 at Toro Park. As always, they have tons of photos up from Rick Rasmusen, so be sure to check those out, too.
