This past Sunday was the final California Bicycle Racing Criterium of the season. The KHS-Maxxis pb JAKROO Cycling Team had 4 racers in attendance with the goal of making the race hard from the gun. Brian McCulloch, Sergio Escutia, David Santos and Shawn Daurelio were ready for battle. As the last SoCal Cup Points race of the season, the team intended to have riders David Santos and Brian McCulloch get as many points as possible in order to move up into the top 5 over all.
Sergio Escutia won his first race with the KHS-Maxxis pb JAKROO Cycling Team this past weekend. Below is his report of how the race played out.
“The last Saturday of August the team did the Cajon Pass Circuit race in San Bernardino California. We had four racers at the race with Brian McCulloch, David Santos, Shawn Daurelio and myself.
One of the things that we noticed right away was the heat; it was going to be a promising hot day of racing. The mood of the team was high as usual and we were ready to deliver. We knew that we were going to need to assume a very active roll from the beginning of the race so we wouldn’t miss the move.
