Felton’s Kim Midstroke went into Saturday’s Central Coast Cyclocross Series’ cross country mountain biking race with a three-point lead in the overall standings. He left with another victory and the max of 50 points to add to his total as the series reaches the halfway point of the season.

Midstroke, who competes in the men’s Cat 2 35-44 age division, finished four laps in his fourth CCCX race of the season — which was held at Toro Park in Salinas — in 1 hour, 27 minutes, 45 seconds. The Midstock Construction/Spokesman rider had almost a minute cushion over runner-up Sherwin Tangonan [Food Source] of Salinas, who finished in 1:28:47.

The tightly contested standings may see a small shakeup once the most recent race points are tallied. Tangonan was in third headed into the race with 331 points while Saturday’s ninth-place finisher Chris Coble had been holding on to second with 333 points.

Other Santa Cruz County winners from Saturday were as follows: Ben Lomond’s Gerry Hatcher [Scotts Valley Cycle Sport] in the men’s Cat 2 45-54 age division, going four laps in 1:28:26; Scotts Valley’s Scott Martin [Bicycle Trip] in the men’s Cat 2 55-plus age division, going four laps in 1:37:49; Capitola’s Richard Latorraca [Family Cycling Center] in the men’s Cat 1 55-64 age division, going five laps in 1:59:25; Santa Cruz’s Andrew Parker [unattached] in the Clydesdale division, going four laps in 2:19:26; Santa Cruz’s Barnaby Lee [Santa Cruz County Cycling Club] in the Cat 2 single speed division, going four laps in 1:47:12; Ben Lomond’s Graham Dittman [unattached] in the men’s Cat 3 19-34 age division, going three laps in 1:12:30; Aptos’ Dan Russ [unattached] in the men’s Cat 3 55-plus age division, going three laps in 1:26:42; and Aptos’ Anya Thrash [unattached] in the women’s Cat 3 19-34 age division, going three laps in 1:28:15.
