SBW Track super Junior Jon Gorski and his Madison-mate Weston Giem have been invited to compete in this event for the United States at the UCI Junior World Championships in the Velodromo di Montechiari, Italy, east of Milan - August 23-27. Their experience together and recent Silver at Junior Nationals in the Madison no doubt contributed to the USAC selection.
Expenses are steep, so the Gorskis have set up a GoFundMe site to help pay for the trip. Prelim heat and final (last event of the entire schedule) are on Sunday, 27 August, mid afternoon and evening, Milan time (PDT+9hrs).
Manhattan Beach Grand Prix was a great success. Thank you volunteers and sponsors for your generous help. Great weather, great racing, lots of vendors, Chevron's (Jill) Kids' Zone, and the course direction change all contributed. Click on the site link above and the FB Page for more winner pics and results. "Race" menu tab has links to good videos of both Pro races.
W Pro winner Anita Stenberg was delighted, and put in extra effort, to win the SBW prime of a an Electra woman's cruiser bike. Roger Martin snapped the pic at right of her ditching the racing bike at the prime tent and riding off on the cuiser with her big paycheck. Read on FB that she has already cruised to the beach on it. Libby once again got the kids off to blazing starts in her famous team outfit. And who is this earnest-looking wiseguy driving the Pace Car?
Good results at State Elite/Juniors Track. Jon Gorski shown here getting Gold in the Match Sprint.
Volunteer slots are filling for the upcoming Masters World Track Championships in October.
Gerald Agnew, SBW's longtime sponsor, world-class rider, education donor, and top attorney set a new track national record in the 2k TT, breaking teamate Jim Kloss' 9 year record by almost 2 sec with a 2:38.5! John McKee won the State Crit Championship, with Mike Fleming a close 2nd.
Masters 2017 Track Nats at the Giordana Velodrome in Rock Hill SC concluded July 2. All Results HERE
See Jim Kloss and Kurt Sato relaxing in their tent at Rock Hill SC Masters Track Nats. Jim won all five individual Golds: Sprint, Scratch, Points Race, 500M, and 2k - and therefore the BAR as well!. Look out Worlds. Will he even bother with States? Kurt won the 500M gold by almost a second, and the Sprint Gold. Sarah Munoz won two Golds in the Individual Pursuit and Team Pursuit, and two Silvers in the Scratch and Points Races. Some of you may not know - Sarah is Gerry Agnew's daughter!
Lots of Gold for SBW State Road TT competitors. Ryan Resella and Lynette Rock in the ITT; and Leo Longo in the TTT. And SBW race team was great at Memorial Day CBR Crit.
SBW/LAVRA track TT series continues Sunday, August 13.
SCNCA announced on their Facebook Page yesterday that the Masters State Track scheduled for Sep 23-24 now conflicts with a Chargers game next door. They are moving it to the San Diego velodrome - recently resurfaced.
Sarah Hammer visits the club in 2006 (Sparks) to thank us for our sponsorship in winning her first of many UCI World Championships. Here she is in a great short for USA Cycling, training at Colorado Springs with her Australian Kelpie "Sedona" tagging along!
Nice results from the Cat 3/4 Ontario crew Sunday, 6/25 with Hilario Reyes leading the way.
Hilario also finished in the money at Redlands, with Jose Dagoberto Chuc near the front of the chase group just seconds behind.
Steve Whitsitt says Thanks to LA FD Lifeguards in a special ceremony honoring the first responders to his cardiac arrest incident on the bike path 12/26/2016, saving his life. This article appeared in the 4/25/2017 issue of the Daily Breeze. After testing, conclusion is that he has developed an arrhythmia condition that can trigger ventricular fibrillation (deadly). This can be controlled by drugs - but no more hard efforts (sigh).
Leo Pettus and team still on a roll - this time Ontario.
SBW Picnic was great. Many new members and old friends. Check out the Facebook site for William's photos. Diego and folks at right are a pleasant treat!
Sadly, former SBW member known by just about everyone in the cycling community, Barney Feigenbaum, succumbed to cancer last week. One of a kind. Will be missed.
Check out Team News in menu links at the top for Prez Matt and Comm Director William updates to racing results and club news.
World Cup and Paracycling worlds were amazing. Thanks to all who volunteered. See victorious US WC Women's TTT at right. Also Makayla as a Podium Medal Lady, chatting with Sarah Hammer.
Also, former SBW team racer Coryn Rivera won the Women's Tour of Flanders with an amazing finishing sprint. Coryn won the 2009 MBGP Women's Pro Race at age 17.
Plan is to re-schedule the 2/26 Baxter 2017 TT which was rained out. Date TBD.
SBW Team Ride continues, every Saturday at 8am from Catalina Coffee in RB - but always check FB or calendar for occasional changes.
