Masters Track National Championships: Event Sched | Daily Results Write-up

UCI has CANCELLED Masters Track World Championships scheduled for the Velosports Center in October due to Covid resurgence. Details Here

Our "itinerant" road/track dynamo William Aligue made a huge golden haul at the AZ States Track at Encino. Hope his travels get him even closer to home!

From club President, Matt Gorski
Dear SBW Family, It is with a heavy heart that we report that Ralph Therrio has passed on. Old timers in the club will remember Ralph as a courageous competitor and a great SouthBay Wheelmen. Ralph was a many times National Record holder, National Champion as well as a 2 time Olympian. Known to his friends and clubmates as Crazy Horse, Ralph was fierce in all races. He was a rare talent that doesn't come along often. We have no information about the specifics of his passing other than that he was in hospice. We send our prayers and best wishes to his wife and family. Rest in Peace Ralph.

Click on each jersey above to get a view of the 2021 SBW 60th anniversary kit with Ralph's racing pic on the back of the jersey.

Here is the GoFundMe site for Bill Ron, with a FB Page for comments and status reports. Please Like the Page and share with your Friends. Another great donation is the wheelchair ramp from Jim Hannon and Beach Cities Cycling Club. Thekla, Bill, and the girls thank every generous soul for the continued support. One positive effect of the pandemic is that Bill receives personal speech therapy online! He still has a ways to go, so steer folks to his GoFundMe page to keep the therapy going.

We are very pleased to announce that Kurt Sato is our new Treasurer. Cary Alpert has stepped down after years of great service to the club. Thank you, Cary.

USAC now offers bike injury insurance for $40 (2021 USAC races). Check it out HERE.

On March 31st, LAVRA volunteers were recognised by Velo Sports Center staff and Coordinator Elise Traylor for their service in 2018 helping to make the track successful. Then Cedric Washington was given the prestigious CalBikeLaw Community Service Award by sponsor Gerry Agnew for his outstanding support to education and training of new riders and young kids learning track cycling.

SBW AWARDS Picnic LUAU Sunday, March 24, was great. Here is a walkabout video taken as we started eating. And here is Tony Wang winning one of the many doorprizes, always a crowd-pleaser. Later at the Velo Sports Center vel, we presented the club's World Championship trophy to Gerry Agnew, and the National Championship trophy to daughter Sarah Munoz. The trophies are made by Matt Gorski and Ted Ernst.

SBW 2018 Pizza Party was great. See private FaceBook Club Page for more photos. A few at right (missing Sarah Munoz - Best Woman). Walkabout video here

Masters Track 2018 UCI World Championships have completed, with SBW riders once again bringing home gold/silver/bronze medals, a world record, and great experiences with new friends from around the world. Thanks to all the volunteers, from all clubs, for the great help. Here's a summary in roughly reverse order of occurence over 8 days.

Gerry Agnew successfully defended his world title in the 2k pursuit. Jim Kloss won Sprint Gold in an overpowering performance. Daughter Sarah Munoz earned bronze in both the ITT pursuit and the 500m. She topped off her great performances with the most exciting finish I saw in the evening sessions. She came from 4th in intermediate points total late in the race, took over with two to go, held everybody off and won the final sprint, climbing to Silver! The crowd loved it. Elise Traylor, Char/Kar twins, and former SBW Vikki Appel got silver in the 4000m W TTT, just missing out Gold after a premature finishing gun threw the outcome to the officials. Pictured here with Coach Roach. Leo Longo and team got Silver in the 4k Pursuit. Kurt Sato repeats as World Champion in the 500m TT, just a fraction over his WR last year! Check out his world-famous start from about the 20m point. Kurt set a new WR ("Best Time" in UCI masters jargon) of 11.356 in the 200m TT for Sprint qualification. Kurt later got silver in the Sprint. Jim "Doc" Kloss earned Gold in the 500m, in just a shade over his World Best from last year.

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!
