Here are the quick updates on this weekends activities.
Another witty, said respectfully vs. mocking it’s pithiness, write up from Rand on the P/1/2 race at LandPark. Deffinitly worth checking out. Touchstone Cycling showed they are ready to start rocking with a solid race at Landpark. Touchstone riders Marissa Axell and Elis Bradshaw produced 1-2 finish dominating the podium much like Webcor did in the men’s race. Elis just needs to get her blog going again and we would be C-L-O-G (that’s short for club rider blog) heaven.
#SDSR – San Dimas
As of the road race the Oceanic-NorCal contingent (Collins, Hurikeno, and Werner) were the best placed gals not including the Peanut Butter/Tibco riders. The Vanderkitten-Focus and Webcor-SportVelo teams should be happy with their imports. The race looked a little tougher for the rest of the Webcor team who didn’t make the road race time cut.
The top 20 in the men’s field looked pretty deep with pro talent. Paul Mach was having a good ride sitting in the top ten but he’s a pro now so he SHOULD be having a good ride. Evan Huffman is one of the few non-pro’s sitting up there, with Wolberg – but the wolverine doesn’t count.
I think the most exciting story at #sdsr has to be Justin Rossi of Marc-Pro Strava. In the Elite 2 field he had a good TT but didn’t crack the top 10, that said the top 15 E2’s were only separated by 30 seconds. Rossi took advantage of this in the RR and threw down with another rider the last few laps and took a 1:30 lead, but a 1 second, over his break companion. Looks like Rossi threw down again in the crit, managing 5th and taking the GC win. That is exciting racing.
Jane Despas for Yahoo! – that’s some serious tiger blood. The men were running 30+ only, which is how old most of the pro’s or should be pro’s are in NorCal. Andres Gil and Jesse Moore took 1-2 in the men’s race, which should be good for their confidence, old guys need loving too you know, going into the the rest of the Spring Classics.
