Chaffey Auto Body Mountain Time Trial
The San Dimas Stage Race Time Trial is a tough hill climb gaining over 1,000ft in 4.25 miles. The race went farther up Glendora Mountain Road this year, lengthening the race time and taxing the riders just a little bit more. The CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team was able to do recon of the course several times prior to the race, and the athletes were ready to rock.
The field for SDSR is always extremely strong as the domestic elite and professional teams are gearing up for the start of the NRC calendar at Redlands next week. We were excited to have three riders finish in the top 25 in the field of 162 racers. Michael Olhesier finished 14th, David Santos 22nd, and Chris Barton 24th.
San Dimas Hospital Road Race
Chris Barton, Logan Loader, Fabrizio Von Nacher, Brian McCulloch, Cole House, Michael Olheiser, David Santos, and Michael Weicht began the fast and technical course for 12 laps, equalling 84 miles in hot and dry conditions. The course is very unique as it cruises through Bonelli park, past guard stations and through a twisty chicane leading into the steep KOM climb finished off with a patch of cobbles.
Mike Olheiser checked in with Cycling Illustrated after the stage to talk about the course, crashes, and how the team fared. Read more about it HERE!
Incycle/Cannondale San Dimas Classic
The San Dimas Criterium is one of the most fun courses we race all year. Olheiser, Santos, Loader and Weicht lined up for the 6-turn course for 75 minutes of racing. Olheiser soon found himself in a very strong 6-man break away that was able to stay away from the field for the better part of 60 minutes. The strong Jamis-Haegens Berman squad were motivated for sprint finish, however, and were able to reel the break in just in time to lead JJ Haedo out for the win.
