Urban Cyclocross

Ridgecrest school, Los Angeles, November 4, 2001

Number two of the eight race series, racers were greeted with a wet course and cool temps courtesy of our first Fall shower, which continued throughout the day. Folding back on itself, the layout offered spectators multiple oppportunities to make noise for their favorites during the tour of the compact Ridgecrest school campus. The fun course featured the deep sand volleyball courts, concrete stair runup, steep 150ft long ramp, loamy woodchip descent, slick high speed tarmac and wet grass slog.

In the Elite men's event, MTB Pro Garnet Vertican (ODI), bolted off the start to lead the first lap. The field exploding instantly, riders were uncharacteristically strung out over half the course on the first lap. Junior prodigy Dane Jankowiak attacked on the second lap to take over the lead. At ten seconds on the third lap, the lanky Jankowiak gradually opened up the gap to his pursuers. Joel Kath, aka Dangerboy and recent transplant from the Utah cross scene, was in third chasing hard. Kath eventually teaming with Vertican in an attempt to get across to Jankowiak.

Flying back late Saturday from the UCI cross in Colorado, last weeks second place and former district champion, Brent Prenzlow (unnattached) struggled with the furious early pace on the slick course. "The course was a little slippery and tricky in spots. I ended up riding on my top tube twice, but I managed to stay upright". From a distant fifth place early on, Prenzlow worked with Scott Cochran (Trek/VW regional) to get to within striking distance of the lanky Jankowiak, who was looking over his shoulder waiting for the inevitable bridge. Prenzlow: "I finally got comfortable on the course and eventually worked up into second, but it took a lotta laps to catch Dane. That was a good, long attack he made off the front".

Mid race, Prenzlow made the first huge surge to quench 30 seconds in three laps. Jankowiak's first ever lead in Elite was about to evaporate. One lap of cat & mouse together and Prenzlow made his move. "I double punched it through the barriers/steps and the climb up the paved path". The junior was treated to a masters display of how to skim through two 16" barriers and the stair run at warp nine. Prenzlow staying away for the W "I was able to hold him off, but he (Jankowiak) is really getting strong."

Women's elite winner Dorothy Wong (Kelly Cycles) continues her domination, narrowly holding a determined Tomarra Notch (Natural Solutions) at bay for the whole race. With an MTB only backgorund, powerful Jenny Escabacher (unnattached) struggled with her first ever race using drop bars and finished a distant third. Look for a strong challenge to Wong as soon a Escabacher figures out her new lightweight cross bike. Wong harassed the master men in their race earlier just as a warmup.

It was a treat to see these sunny Southern California 'crossers half caked in sand, mud stripe up the backside and soaked after the race. Current elite district champions Emilio Cervantes and Dorothy Wong held a clinic for new racers during the festivities. Next week, the "Big Hill" at Schbarum Park. Start Running!

River City Bicycles Cross Crusade Round 5

David Douglas Park, Vancouver, Washington, November 4, 2001

By Brian Witty

Barry Wicks (Bike Gallery) became the first two-time winner of the 2001 River City Bicycles Cyclo-Cross Crusade Series as his teammate Leah Toffolon (Bike Gallery) snared her inaugural victory of the series on November 4. The exciting day of racing held at David Douglas Park in Vancouver, Wash., highlighted the parity that is making the 2001 edition of the $10,000, eight-race series the most competitive in its 10-year history.

The redesigned three-kilometer course featured a figure-eight configuration with the opening loop that emphasized speed as it was raced primarily over grass fields and bike paths. The latter portion continued on asphalt before taking riders onto one kilometer of single-track through the woods and a pair of plunging, single-track descents and challenging run-ups.

The second run-up is the course's main challenge and the nemesis of the record 283 athletes who showed up to take it on. The steep 50-meter slope forced racers to carry their bicycles up a muddy, cleat-clogging embankment where spikes offered a distinct advantage.

The Category A Men's field got underway in a flurry as riders vied for the pole position on the opening section of the seven-lap race. The field stretched out into single-file and topped 25 miles per hour on the flat, asphalt sections.

The lead group became evident following the first time up the long run-up when last week's winner Eric Tonkin (Kona-Voicestream Wireless) and the Bike Gallery trio of Wicks, Derl Miller and Shannon Skerritt were clear by 10 seconds. Tonkin led the first lap as the four leaders would continue to pull away as they traded the lead. Jonathon Myers (Team S & M) worked hard to keep the leaders in sight.

The next three laps saw Miller and Wicks take turns attacking the group with a vigilant Tonkin closing down gaps. Miller looked threatening as he sped away and put several lapped riders between himself and the chasing lead pack heading onto the single track. However, his gap had vanished as the quartet passed through the throng of screaming, cow-bell clanging fans at the top of the run-up.

On the fourth lap, Wicks made his decisive move on the flat open loop. Wicks, who had missed the last two rounds competing at the U.S. National Collegiate Mountain Bike Championships for Oregon State University where he placed fourth in the short-track cross country event, used his great form to open his lead by 10 seconds per lap. At the bell, Wicks had a one-minute lead over Tonkin and Miller with Skerritt a further ten seconds back.

As he trudged through the sand pit preceding the finish line, Wicks' face showed the effort in taking his second victory in the Cyclo-Cross Crusade. Tonkin held off Miller for second followed by Skerritt and Myers.

The five-lap Women's race was the most hard-fought of the series with the previous three winners lining up, including U.S. National Collegiate Short-Track Cross Country gold medallist Alice Pennington (Gentle Lovers), Karen Kenlen (Sunnyside) and Rhonda Mazza (Team S & M).

On the opening lap, Pennington took charge and looked set to repeat her victory from Pier Park. The next time around Kenlen was on the front as Pennington dropped back. The Sunnyside rider held the lead for another lap as the top five riders were within 20 seconds of each other. However, on the fourth lap the spectators were surprised to see Toffolon emerge from the woods with a 15-second gap on the field.

Toffolon continued to press hard and extended her lead by the time she crossed the finish line, becoming the fifth winner in five races. Kenlen held on for second, followed by Mazza, Pennington and Gollogly.

The sixth round of the $10,000 River City Bicycles Cyclo-Cross Crusade heads to the Estacada Timber Park in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains on November 11. The popular Estacada course weaves through a scenic, forested park using the contours of the amphitheater for challenging run-ups.

2nd Annual Highland Park Cyclocross Race - Mid-Atlantic Cup #6

Highland Park, NJ, November 4, 2001

By Ian Anderson

Riders competed for some very peculiar prizes at The 2nd Annual Highland Park Cyclocross Race in Highland Park, NJ on Sunday while aiding burn-victims of the attack the World Trade Center.

The 160 riders present at the race, the halfway point in the Mid-Atlantic Cup Series, helped raise $1125 for the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation a non-profit organization of firefighters dedicated to the advancement of burn care - according to the Highland Park Hermes Cycling Team.

In addition to the $2300 in cash and merchandise offered, the riders competed for such prizes as six-packs of beer, papayas, coconuts, small pumpkins, home-baked cookies and pies, a 7-foot-tall sugarcane, and 3-foot-long loofas.

The course was fast yet technically challenging. It included innumerable 180-degree turns including several in sand and one with a potentially decapitating tree limb; triple and even quadruple barrier sections; and 3 trips up the same hill per lap with one run-up.

"The promoters were going to add a 30-foot running section through deep mud on the banks of the Raritan River when the tide began to recede," said David Yu Greenblatt of the Hermes team. "But the threat by the entire Elite Men's field to withdraw forced them to cancel these plans," said Greenblatt.

There were dramatic finishes to both the Elite Men's and Women's races. In the Elite Men's race, Kris Auer (LSV Trek VW) was the sprint-victor of the 3 leaders that included Ryan Dewald (Beans-Rheinhardt) and Greg Ferguson (Trek VW). The winner Auer now trails second-placed Dewald by 54 points in the Mid-Atlantic Cup standings.

Jennifer Leonard (Evolution Racing), now third in the women's MAC standings, won the Elite Women's race solo. Just behind, Josie Shew (First State Velo) battled with Thais Silva (Wissahickon) for second and leadership in the Cup.

Shew finished second after Silva took a crowd-startling spill in the final triple-barrier section just before the finish. Despite a dropped chain and obvious pain, Silva ran toward the line to finish third. Silva now trails present women's MAC leader Shew by 23 points.

The race promoters wish to thank James Lee of Highland Park Cyclery, the New Brunswick Farmers' Market, The Bagel Dish of Highland Park,, and the members of both the Highland Park Hermes and Rutgers University Cycling Teams who contributed prizes and helped put on this successful race.

CrossLogic Cyclocross

Parkville MO, November 4 2001

A warm Sunday for November showed lots of short sleeves on competitors. Race director Chris Locke orchestrated a fine race and post event party. Features such as a wide pavement straightaway with a roundabout, a 10 meter sand pit that most elected to run, two sets of triples, and lots of free beer and food made this a memorable event.

CrossLogic, Bicycle Adventure, KCBC racing, Boulevard Brew, Budweiser and many local Parkville businesses are the responsible folks.

2001 Nebraska State Championship Cyclo-cross

Mahoney Park, Lincoln, November 4, 20011

Cross Finale: Schlake Closes Out On Top

By John Lefler

On a beautiful, sunny day that resembled anything but a typical November afternoon in Nebraska, Darin Schlake of OBCR rode away from the field and claimed his second consecutive Nebraska State Cyclo-cross title. Sunday's circuit at Mahoney Park was the toughest of the season with four challenging barrier configurations and a mix of technical and fast sections. That did not seem to slow down Schalke, who crushed the relatively small field of 12 riders. Kevin Wilkins of Team Kaos provided an admirable chase for a short time, but then fell off the pace a little over halfway into the competition.

Despite Schlake's dominant display, the 60 minute race had other impressive performances, including the 5th straight top finish for Wilkins in the Cat. 3 event, a strong second place showing in the Cat. 3 race by Tony Wilhelm of the Cycle Works squad and another late charge by Matt Gersib of Team Kaos. Gersib fought his way from the middle of the pack to claim a well-deserved second place finish in the Cat. 1/2 competition. "This is the kind of course I know I can excel on," explained Gersib. Schlake excelled also, explaining, "It was fun today. The course was really fast and I was able to keep it going throughout."
