                         Urban CyclocrossTM Black Cat ‘Cross October 29th, 2006

The Urban Cyclocross Series continued with the Black Cat ‘Cross at Entradero Park in Torrance on October 29th. 132 entries enjoyed beach like weather at the hilly location that borders Redondo Beach. Even a gorilla raced during the day though he did request some tape to put on his leg to keep his fur out of his chain! Urban Cyclocross Series "Black Cat" bonus points were awarded in Masters 35+, 45+, Specialized Men’s category 3 & 4, and Beginner Men’s categories. The improved course had more pavement and wider sections allowing riders to pass at any point on the course. Michael Easter (Elite Men’s 1,2,3), Coryn Rivera (Women’s Elite), Javier Castaneda (Cat 4), Ben Bertiger (Jr 10-14), Frederick Bottger (Single Speed), and Debbie Helms (Women 35+)continued to dominate their series by winning each of their categories. Eddie Arnet (Masters 45+) also had a great day. He grabbed a cat, moved into the series lead, picked up a first place win and got a new set of Shimano pedals! A big welcome to Dirt Chicks Clothing Company who joins us as sponsor for the Women’s 35+ races. LA Tri Club was our host club for the day and did an outstanding job assisting with the event.



More highlights of the day included the Shimano Youth Races. The huge turnout required multiple heats as friends, parents, and families cheered their kids on. Mini BMX bikes stormed the abbreviated course followed by a few bikes that still had training wheels. “We distributed over 5,000 flyers through the Torrance school district and it paid off!” said director Brad House. Some kids even jumped in for a second race! After the event the braver kids took to the Entradero course showing they are ready to join the three new juniors, Andrew Hazeltine, Casey Thayer and Bobby Unverzagt who raced cyclocross for the first time on Sunday.

2006 Urban Cyclocross Series

The Urban CyclocrossTM Series continued on October 15th with the prestigious Gator Cross at Ken Malloy Park in Harbor City. Over 200 riders crisscrossed the park throughout the day! “It was another record breaker,” said director Brad House, as double digit fields were the norm for most categories! The Specialized Men’s cat 3 & 4 field topped 40 riders! 
It had a lot of variety, was challenging and fun. I liked the fact that it was flat enough that it allowed areas to recover. Keep up the good work,” stated Frank from Velo Allegro.
Numerous spectators were entertained by the several close sprints and in the Men’s 1,2,3 category father/son duo Mark and Chance Noble swept first and second place. Chance’s win wowed us all as he wheelied his ‘cross bike solo over the finish line! Urban CyclocrossTM Series leaders donned yellow socks making many of them easy targets for new challengers. But most leaders held them off! The arrival of Accelerade as a sponsor further increased our prize list and provided some excitement in the Specialized Men’s 3/4 category hot lap preem won by Tomas Petricko of Mafia Racing. South Bay Wheelmen, best know for their annual Manhattan Beach Grand Prix, did a fantastic job hosting the event while still being able to race.
