15th San Luis Rey Road Cycling Classic
Bonsall, California, May 5, 2002
Schroeder Iron Team Dominates
By Doug McWhinney
The Schroeder Iron Team took the win and four of the top five spots in the seven lap, 81-mile Men's Pro/1/2 category at the 15th Annual San Luis Rey Road Cycling Classic. Ryan Barrett (Shroeder Iron) took the win easily from Ryan Lane (Zombies) in a two-up sprint after a long day in the saddle. The race featured a large field of over 80 riders including U.S. Postal Service Euro-Dog Floyd Landis (in Southern California for some TdF preparation and Cinco de Mayo), Jamie Paolinetti (Schroeder Iron), Chris Walker (Zombies) and Brent Prenzlow (Celo Pacific).
This Cinco de Mayo (May 5th for non-Spanish speakers) was a great day for a road race with cool, overcast conditions in the morning and bright sun with a cool breeze for the afternoon racing. The hilly 11.6-mile course starts and finishes at Sullivan Middle School in Bonsall (near San Diego) and features several short steep hills, a 1.5-mile climb near the finish and some narrow rural roads just like the European Classics. A total of 527 riders participated in this year's 'Classic', filling several of the race's 15 categories.
The day's racing produced many strong performances including a long breakaway and solo victory by Tony Page (Canyon Velo) in the Masters 40+ race, a sprint win by World Champion Susan Shoock against a tough Women's 40+ field that included a motivated Julie Lowery (Celo Pacific), strong riding by Jimena Florit (RLX Polo Sport) in the Men's Cat. 3 race, and an impressive effort by the Labor Power team in the Master's 35+ race that netted them 3 of the top 4 spots and a massive solo win by Louie Amelburer (Labor Power).
The Classic is organized each year by the Celo Pacific Racing Club and was lead to success again this year by Race Director Don Elling. Don said the "Classic was a great success" due to the efforts of Sullivan Middle School and their Parent Teachers Student Association (parking and facilities), the Fallbrook Sheriff Explorers (traffic control), the Fallbrook Firemen Explorers (parking set up), the North San Diego County Chapter of the Honda Gold Wing Road Riders Association (lead and follow motorcycles), American Cycles (staging), Clif Bar (free product including gel handouts at the start line), the dedicated team of USAC officials and the many club volunteers (registration, clean-up, etc.).
Celo Pacific is also organizing a cyclocross race series for the upcoming 2002-2003 season, so check www.celopacific.org and the race schedule on cyclingnews.com soon for details.
