|Event Name:||SCX Season Finale @ Monroe|
|Date:||November 25, 2012|
|Description:||The final race of the Seattle Cyclocross Series took place Sunday at the Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA. Significant rain fell the few days before the race and despite some sunshine, the course had its mud and slick spots. Utilizing the small elevation gains on the property, the course had racers working through mix of twisting turns, off-camber areas, a short run up, a mud pit, and some packed sand. With double points and series overall titles on the line the course and conditions would help make for an interesting day of racing. (credit Kenton Berg CX magazine)|
|Cat 3 35+ Men:||1st - Greg (the Tutu) Kauper|
In the back of Greg Kauper's mind this was going to be the LAST race TPR would participate in. With the team disbanding and cyclecross season coming to an end this event would truly mark the end of the TPR era.
Kauper held no hope of winning a series championship and no prize money dreams. This effort was fuled strictly on the desire to end the TPR era with a 'W'.
Kauper got the hole shot and led the race from the gun. Brian Buton from Audi managed to close in on the Tutu on the last lap but Kauper out kicked him from the final turn for an exciting two up sprint finish.
