Prenzlow and Shouten battle at SPCS #3

By Dave Sheek

The jarring course was going to be fast, with the most pavement used on a course design this season, but riders could forget about keeping that pace on the dirt. The hidden potholes and gopher homes made racers wish they had put chamois cream inside their gloves. Those who didn't wear gloves visited the onsite EMT's after the race to have their swollen, cut, and/or blistered hands cleaned and wrapped with gauze.

Racers pushed hard all weekend, but it was a battle of power between SOCAL racer Brent Prenzlow (Alan Factory Team) and Tristan Schouten (Planet Bike Team), who traveled from Wisconsin to challenge his friend, that made the weekend really stirring. Saturday's men's race was missing some customary names from the field including the father-son duo of Mark and Chance Noble, as the two decided to save up their energy for Sunday's UCI event. However, with that said it was still phenomenal racing as Tony Cruz from Team Discovery (11th) and other UCI competitors like Shawn Harshman of Harshman Wealth/Primus Mootry (fourth) joined the field. Mike Easter (Time Factory Team) attacked the two leaders until near the end. It was a strong pace for such grueling conditions as the strong winds and bumps took a toll on equipment and bodies.

In the women's elite it was Coryn Rivera of the Kahala - La Grange Team who took off strong to set the pace. The women stayed strong, holding together for the first couple laps as the conditions began to space the group. In the end it was Dorothy Wong of team CICLE (third) and Melodie Metzger (California Giant) who came back for her revenge, after her loss to Rivera at SCPS #2, as the three battled for the lead. It was Metzger who rode away with the win gapping from the lead group in the end.
