Kabush makes it four in a row at Fontana

Geoff Kabush (Team Maxxis-Rocky Mountain) won again at Fontana despite trailing a talented ShoAir team until the final lap. Newly acquired ShoAir racer Max Plaxton had to settle for second place, although he had led most of the race. Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (Gary Fisher/Subaru) out-sprinted his teammate Sam Schultz for third. Adam Craig (Giant) finished fifth.

The newly designed cross country course proved to be much more challenging than in years past. It featured a steep, technical climb, followed by technical, downhill singletrack. Even the leaders were forced off their bikes at time due to deep sand an rocky obstacles. For the first time in race history, a major section of course was open to pros only.

"The course is more condensed, more technical...a better mountain bike course," said Craig. "I definitely got a little loose a couple times on the bottom of the pro section and didn't die which is good."

The race turned out to be quite tactical as Plaxton and Sid Taberlay (ShoAir) were the only team with numbers among the leaders. Initially Taberlay set a blistering pace but Plaxton broke free and made it up the steep climb first. Kabush was forced to do all the chasing, with Taberlay and Jeremiah Bishop (MonaVie/Cannondale) in tow.

On the fourth lap, Taberlay got around Kabush and was able to effectively block on the descent. This allowed Plaxton to open a 15-second lead entering the next pavement climb.

"My training was going well and I knew I was 100% coming in here" said Kabush. "I had to deal with the ShoAir mafia there for a while...but that's the benefit of having a team. I just tried to stay relaxed because I knew it was going to come down to the last lap."

Kabush was right in that the younger Plaxton faded a bit on lap five, allowing Kabush not only to catch him, but put some significant distance on him before the finish line.

The race for third heated up dramatically as Taberlay appeared to be blown with the Gary Fisher duo chasing him down. "We caught Sid on the long stretch on the fourth lap," said Sam Schultz. "As soon as we hit the climb it was just Adam (Craig), Jeremy (Horgan-Kobelski), and me. Jeremy was riding the climb super hard."

"We made a gap on Adam at the paved climb, but his descending skills got him back pretty close to us again," said Schultz. "At the end, Jeremy and I sprinted for the finish, and he took it."

One of the most dramatic rides of the day was by Todd Wells (Specialized) who broke a chain at the start. Despite losing six to eight minutes due to the repair, he was able to pick off over one hundred riders and finish ninth overall. It certainly begs the question as to what he might have done if he had not suffered the mechanical.

The US Cup weekend appeared to be a huge success. The elite men's field of 110 riders was the largest in the history of the race. The festival atmosphere brought in large crowds, many of whom had never seen a bicycle race before.

Many of the top pros will head to the first World Cup race in South Africa on April 11-12. For most racers, the Sea Otter Classic on April 16-19 will be their next major race. It will also be stop number two on the US Cup ProXCT calendar.

Georgia Gould powers her way to a win

Georgia Gould and Luna teammate Catheine Pendrel had a slugfest at Southridge Park. Gould's superior power on the flats allowed her to take a 36-second victory over Pendrel. A resurgent Heather Irmiger (Gary Fisher/Subaru) took third convincingly, while 20-year-old Emily Batty (Trek Bicycle Store) took fourth, and Willow Kroeber (Gary Fisher/Subaru) finished in fifth place.

The newly designed course at Fontana is made up of three distinct parts; a rather massive, technical climb complete with slick rock, sand, and grass; a technical singletrack descent with some major obstacles; and a very long flat run into the finish.

Gould took the hole shot and led the women's field up that first steep climb. She held a lead over Pendrel until the beginning of the climb on lap two when Pendrel passed Gould and seemed to be riding away. As the race progressed, however, it became apparent while Pendrel owned the climbs, Gould was superior on the two other sections of the course. When Pendrel would get away, Gould would repeatedly bring her back.

"I had a great start. I tried not to go out too hard on the first climb so I would not be too blown up," said Gould. "Then (later), Catherine passed me... she was strong on the climbs, and I was a little stronger on the flat sections."

"I felt strong. I definitely have great form right now and am climbing really well," said Pendrel. "I just felt really off on the descents. Georgia was really schooling me on the downhills. "Whatever gaps I would get on the climbs, she would reel me in between the flats and the descents. I started riding better as the race went on but so did she."

Behind the leaders, Irmiger rode the entire race alone in third place. She appeared to climb nearly as well as the leaders and rode very consistent laps.

Batty (Trek Bicycle Store) has had an amazing start to her season. Last weekend, she won the Under 23 Pan American Continental Championship. By finishing fourth in Fontana, she improved her position by one spot over last year. It's been awhile since anyone Batty's age has achieved multiple national series podiums.

"I felt absolutely awesome," said Batty after the race. "The heat was playing in my favor coming from Tucson... the course was just phenomenal."

Koerber also rode a consistent race. She appeared to be climbing well, and she descended far better than most of the racers. She finished approximately six minutes behind Gould.
