So Cal Cyclocross Series #2

Torrance, CA, October 2, 2005

So. Cal Cross Series continues to break records!

Sunny and 78 degrees. Not your average cross race forecast but that's what greeted riders at race #2 or the Southern California Cyclocross Series in Torrance, CA.

Back on Track Productions and the Urban Cyclocross played host to So Cal Cross Series race #2 with another record breaking day of 175 entrees on Sunday Oct. 2nd. The race was held at Entradero Park and featured a combination of sand, loose gravel and a very challenging 70 meter run up. The technical and demanding course took its toll as running was reduced to walking on the sandy, steep hill. Hairpin turns in the sand and gravel added to the excitement as riders and their skills were put to the test.

Redline Bicycles hosted Bike Demo Day with a collection of Conquest Pro bikes hot off the red Vegas dirt! Riders were given a chance to test out the bikes firsthand. A record setting field of Juniors lined up and were led by Didier Jourdain of San Diego Bicycle Club/Karl Strauss who dominated the boys race while racing on one of the Redline Conquest Pro demo bikes! Newly crowned National MTB champion, Brittany Van Vleet of KHS/Swamis (San Diego) took the win for the girls.

The women's B race was won by Beth Gentry of Team Pro Cyclery and the ever lively, ever working series director, Dorothy Wong of Kelly Bike Company won the women's A race.
Taking the men's B race was Ty Cady of team Rock N Road. The largest field of the day, also record attendance, was the Men's C event which was won by 16 year old Grant Van Horn of team Action Sports/Cannondale (Bakersfield) who not only came from behind to take the win, but also competed in his first ever cyclocross race!

In masters racing it was Jeff Prinz of SDBC taking his second straight win of the series in the 30+ race, Santa Cross race promoter, Gary Hanson of team Amgen winning the 40+ race in commanding fashion, and Jonathan Livesay of PAA/Merril Lynch winning the 50+ race, also his second win of the series.

The men's A race was hotly contested but handily won by Celo Pacific team rider Tony Smith….on a single speed FIXED gear bike! Handling the dismounts, sand and tough run ups is no easy task let alone doing it on a fixed gear bike with one brake! Coming in second was Shoreline cycles rider Mike Easter and rounding out the top three was Shawn Olin of the U.S. Armed Forces.

So Cal Cross welcomes: InCycle, Protech Skincare, Elete Water, 3 Pines Lodge - Big Bear, Warner Springs Ranch, Slime, Alpha Q/True Temper, Brave Soldier, Adventure Sports Magazine, and Endless Pursuit to our series sponsor family. Thanks for your support!
