Convert Cross Presented by Successful Living Amateur Cycling Team Ventura, CA Sunday, November 4, 2007
The Southern California Prestige Series (SCPS) is almost at its midpoint and only continues to be more fun with each race such as Sunday�s (November 4, 2007) Convert Cross presented by Successful Living Amateur Cycling Team (www.bicyclesofojai.com/site2/) and benefiting the Garret Lemire Memorial Foundation: Bicycle Safety and Education Program (www.glmgp.com/index.php?page=glmgp_edu) came to a close. This was another extraordinary race in the series as a new course was introduced using the scenic Lake Casitas Recreation Area in Ventura, CA. This superb new venue, as some have said, was perfect with the lake views and a challenging 1.5 mile course consisting of 30% road and 70% grass/dirt � and in true cyclocross fashion, it sent riders through multiple dismounts and small power climbs.

There were a few riders missing this week either from the distance of this race or those who are out on the UCI points� chase. Regardless, the racing was terrific because of the technical course that mountain bikers such as Chance Nobel (Cal Giant/Specialized) favored.

The women�s elite was out on course first and starting with a bang was the young Coryn Rivera of Team Redline Bikes, the prestige series points leader, leading the race until her first descent through the dry creek bed where her front brake locked, throwing her over the bars and allowing the women�s field to pass. Ms. Rivera said it was weird that her brake locked because her bike was fine in warm-ups so she didn�t know what happened. It had completely locked up and threw her so she had to stop to completely inspect the brake and re-center it before starting again. Once back on course, Coryn Rivera (Redline Bikes) was not too far behind the pack as pushed hard to catch back up to the lead pack where Dorothy Wong and teammate Tanya Bray of Team CICLE.org worked together in the lead positions to separate themselves from the pack. However, Coryn began weaving her way through the field passing fifth place finisher Lana Atchley and fourth place finisher Christie Pleiss (Team Redlands) on her way towards the Team CICLE riders. At the halfway point she was able to meet with the two women again and continued to push her way through, showing the most power she has delivered this season to take the win with Bray and Wong of Team CICLE.org finishing second and third.

The men�s racing was just as exciting with riders like Mike Easter of the Time Factory Team attacking the course aggressively all the way through. The race started with Chance Nobel of Team Cal Giant/Specialized leading, and probably with confidence after his amazing finish last week at the USGP race were he finished in a respective 17th.. It was on the second lap where Jason Lowetz and Frederick Bottger of Team Bear Claw, working together, lead the group and caused a break. Lowetz lead Bottger, Easter and others on the backside of the course until he rolled his tire off the rim on a log, which racers were hopping over in this fast right turning section. This small tangle gave Easter a break as he passed the two on his way to Chance Nobel for the victory. The Time Factory Rider, Easter, did not stop the entire race as he gapped himself even from the young Nobel. And, while Lowetz was out of the lead group he still finished in an amazing tenth place after a dash to the pits for a tire change. Bottger of team Bear Claw also had some time to make up but did so with a vengeance as he took second for the day with his best finish for the season putting Chance Nobel in third, John Behrens of Bailey Black Mountain Bikes in fourth and Greg Bennet (Team Successful Living) in fifth.

Thanks again to the sponsors that made the event happen, ConvertCX (www.convertcx.com), www.rideventura.com, www.nonstopciclismo.com, www.cicle.org, and all the other supporters of the SCPS such as Redline Bikes, Michelin Tires and all the many others. Everyone who came out enjoyed another great event in its superb location. I am sure we will be seeing this event again in the future. The spectators and most of all those who stuck around to help clean up receive a lot of appreciation. Volunteering to clean up is needed after every race and keep in mind that those who help are always rewarded. The next race is Sunday, November 11, 2007 for stop #6 of the Southern California Prestige Series.
