So. Cal. 'Cross Cup - Race #4 - Series Final

San Diego, CA., January 12, 2003

Prenzlow and Wong Take Elite So. Cal. 'Cross Cup Overall Titles

By Doug McWhinney

After a long season of cyclocross racing and four So. Cal. 'Cross Cup (SCCC) races, Brent Prenzlow (Celo Pacific/Cannondale) and Dorothy Wong (Kelly Bike Company) were finally crowned with the Elite Men's and Women's Overall SCCC titles. Prenzlow and Wong each received a pair of Spinergy Xaero-X wheels to go along with their new titles.

As expected, the mid-January series final drew fewer participants than the previous races, but the die-hard crossers were there and battled hard as usual. The racers were greeted by sunny and warm southern California weather once again, prompting more water bottle hand-ups than usual. The course, near the San Diego velodrome, was long, wide and fast consisting of 50% dirt roads, 45% dirt trails and 5% pavement. The course also featured four barrier sections, including a run-up. Most riders were ticking off lap times in the 7-1/2 to 8 minute range on the long course.

There was some very close racing as riders battled for victories and valuable points toward the overall standings. The winners for most of the categories would not be decided until the days racing was complete. The most exciting race was in the C category where Dave Bales (Celo Pacific) and Dan Breyer (Celo Pacific) started the day within 10 points of each other. Bales, Breyer and Greg Zackowski (San Diego Bicycle Club) broke away early and stayed together to the finish, with Breyer taking the victory and the overall title in a close finish.

The first season of the SCCC Series has been a successful one and the promoters look forward to building on it for next season. This season's SCCC received generous sponsorship from Clif Bar, Spinergy, Bike 101, Sock Guy and Tufo tires. Their support of cyclocross racing is greatly appreciated!
