Cyclocross couple have big weekend

Erik Tonkin and Rhonda Mazza are the fastest couple in Portland. The husband and wife pair scored great results in the Cycle-Smart International held this morning in Northampton, MA. Erik placed 5th among an elite group of riders and Rhonda rode to an amazing 2nd place behind Canadian powerhouse Lynn Bessette. Way to go guys!

And for all you Tonkin/Mazza fans…keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming story on them in a major local media outlet. And don’t forget to check out all my photos of Rhonda and Erik.

Here they are before the start of the recent Cross Crusade race at Alpenrose Dairy.

For those who are interested, I covered the last grand prix cyclocross race from San Francisco in my blog:

It includes of movies and photos with Chris Horner in his 2nd X race. Someone I know is looking for more movies and photos from the portland races. Any links?
