  URBAN CYCLOCROSS SERIES RESULTS  NEWS   Dec 18, 2007    NEWS  

The Urban Cyclocross Series continued with the Encore Cycling Cyclocross at Camp James in Irvine. It was another star studded field and the racing was World Class.  Mike Bell, Superbowl of Motocross Champion and motorcycle hall of famer, brought his son out to race. It was an honor to see them both compete in their respective categories. The Elite Men 1,2,3 field was once again graced by the presence of Discovery Channel’s Tony Cruise. This time Tony showed his experience and patience moving his way up through the field  to a victory. Initially attacked by Lyle Warner (Team Bearclaw), John Tzinberg (Kahala/LaGrange), and Brandon Gritters (Rock N Road), only Gritters was able to match Cruz’s speed towards the second part of the race. Gritters teammate Chris Demarchi appropriately refused to help chase Cruz and Gritters and Cruz was able to shake Gritters off to roll away to the solo win. The Singlespeed categories once again were bigger than ever. Singlespeed A was a hotly contested race between Singlespeed newcomer Mike McMahon, Coley King, and Cid Castillo. In the end, McMahon secured the win in a sprint but Noah Holcomb maintained his series lead by one point by managing a fourth place finish. The Women fields also saw several newcomers including Team Ergon/Ellsworth rider Monique Sawicki who upset the series leaders Lana Atchley (SC Velo) and Rachell O’Connell (UCI/WPT Cheerwine) in her first race of the series.

“Another first rate event” was the word from the riders at the Urban Cyclocross SeriesTM , Turkey ‘Cross at Entradero Park , Torrance Ca hosted by Liquid Fitness Cycling. Besides the excitement of flying bean bag turkeys being tossed for extra series points there was an early buzz when the crowd learned legendary Ned Overend, the godfather of cross country mountain biking, was on the start sheet for the Elite Men 1,2,3 race. The question of the day was how would "Deadly Nedly", best known his UCI World Mountain Biking Championship Gold in 1990 and Bronze in 1991 and six NORBA National Mountain Biking Championship titles 1986, ‘87, ‘89, ‘90, ‘91, ’92, handle the infamous Entradero Park hill and the new turn with three log barriers. Ned, racing for Specialized, put the hurt on the younger riders for most of the race but in the end it was Team Bearclaw’s Fritz Bottger taking 1st, Jason Lowetz in 2nd and Ned Overend in 3rd.

 

Another surprise took place in the Masters 45+ race. The addition of the ‘cross friendly triple logs enabled the cross riders to edge out the top mountain biker Eddie Arnet. Masters 45+ series leader Eddie fell behind Jim Pappe and Michael Longmire (who came all the way from Montana) to end up in 3rd. But Eddie still holds on to his series lead over Dave Hnatiuk.

 

A huge turnout of Shimano Youth racers 12 & under topped the day’s attendance at over 150 riders and Back On Track’s Random Cash handed out by junior Duncan Reid to the Elite Men category once again entertained the crown particularly when Lyle Warner edged out Brandon Gritters for one of the cash grabs!

"Great course at Ken Malloy.  Although we missed the long dirt straight away, this was a much better course." Bruce Temesy

"Your course last weekend was very nice and family friendly." Dorothy Wong

"Great race yesterday!  I had lots of fun."  Amy Hutner

"Thanks for putting on the race today.  I had a great time and I think the course was fun.  The fresh rains really made the terrain fun." John Bailey

"Just wanted to thank you for putting on such a quality race. I had forgotten what a great job you do. (2000 was the last time I raced.) Even though I finished last in the 55 race, (a vine like branch got wound up in my rear changer), I still had great fun ! See you in two weeks and thanks again," Jim Stephens

"First off I want to say what a fun race this was! The course is tough and definitely a challenge. See you all on the 28th! Thank you," Paul Avila


Urban CyclocrossTM – Event #2

October 28th, 2007 

 

The Urban CyclocrossTM Series continued with the Black Cat CrossTM at Ken Malloy Park. The cat grab once again entertained both spectators and riders. Bonus series points were picked up in the Masters 45+ by Greg Castaneda (Lightning Velo) and in the Singlespeed A by Noah Holcomb (Cannondale Factory) for grabbing the ornamental cat and tossing it at the announcer. The weather cooperated as clear skies and clean air were the norm despite the recent wildfires. The Elite Men 1,2,3 race was treated to an appearance by Tony Cruz (Discovery Channel Team). Initially missing the lead break of riders, the cruiser was able to get rolling to eventually catch the group that included Jason Lowetz (Team Bearclaw), Brandon Gritters (Rock N Road), Gary Hanson (Giant), and John Baily. After the catch, Cruz tore the group apart with only Lowetz able to hang on to Cruz but only for a short time as he too could not keep Cruz’s pace. Hanson and Gritters traded pace for several minutes until an unfortunate bad remount caused Gritters to snap his seat post taking both him and Hanson off their bikes. A hilarious move was made by Hanson as he chased his bike that had kept going without him! Once Hanson caught up to his bike, he was able to settle in to a solid third place behind Lowetz and Cruz. Gritters was lucky to be next to the mechanical pit and lost no time as he retrieved his spare bike to hold on to fourth place. A tremendous thank you to SoCalPOBA and South Bay Wheelmen for their help! A bit of rain 24 hours before race day made for another excellent course and the Random Cash for the Elite Men’s and Elite Women’s was again a hit with the spectators and riders. Watch for more cash to be handed out at random to the riders at the upcoming Urban CyclocrossTM  Turkey 'Cross at Entradero Park in Torrance, November 18th hosted by Liquid Fitness Cycling.

Riders at this year's first Urban Cyclocross SeriesTM were treated to an exceptional course at the Palos Verdes Peninsula High XC running course due to the rain and thanks to hundreds of student runners the day before.  Men’s Elite 1,2,3 category started out with a lead group of eight riders breaking away from the rest. Team Bearclaw’s duo of Fritz Bottger and Jason Lowitz rolled away only slowing down when Fritz stopped to pick up the greenbacks scattered on the ground and pocketed them. Yes, that was real cash handed to the riders at random on the course just for racing! Team BearClaw went on to sweep the top three places in the Elite Men’s category.

TM #1 was an awesome race with perfect weather conditions, No heat, no wind and no dust. Just cool and sunny weather. The course was lengthen, several new sections were added including Capital Hill where cash was handed to (and thrown at) the Elite Men and Women riders. This was a huge success. Singlespeed categories were also bigger than ever with a $100 value JANDD messenger bag awarded to the fastest rider on the first lap, Cid Castillo. Closing the day was the Shimano Youth series which brought out a peloton of young riders from SBW.  

Watch for lots of cash to again be handed out at upcoming
