Infineon Raceway Spring Cycling Series
Race #3 - Sonoma, CA April 21, 2005
Santa Rosa's Standish claims second win at Infineon
Santa Rosa resident Ben Standish claimed his second win in three weeks on Thursday night in the third round of the Infineon Raceway Spring Cycling Series. Standish, who rides for the Dewars Race Team, took the victory by less than one second with a sprint to the finish line just ahead of Todd Henning (Napa, Napa Valley Velo) in the A Race. Henning was last week's winner. Nick Wierzba of Napa (Napa Valley Velo) finished third.
The A Race covered seven laps over the 10-turn, 1.99-mile road course, which is the same circuit that will be used for the Dodge/Save Mart 350 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup event in June. Santa Rosa's Jonathan Lee (Eastside Cycles) won the B Race, which also covered seven laps. He was followed by Truckee's Conrad Snover (Timex) and Forestville's Jon Evans (Huangoche). The event attracted 22 cyclists.
The final round of the Spring Cycling series returns to Infineon Raceway on Thursday, April 28. Gates open at 5 p.m., with registration at 5:30 p.m., and the race starting at 6 p.m. Cost is $10 per competitor. Cycling will return to Infineon Raceway in August with the Summer Cycling series, which will be held Aug. 4, 11 and 18.
