Check out MBGP website update for the very successful Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix. A tremendous effort by all who helped make it so. During the races, the fans took a moment to honor three of the four SBW UCI 2017 Track Masters World Champions at the MBGP podium with Ted's impressive trophies: Jim Kloss, Kurt Sato, and Leo Longo. Jerry Agnew was not present. You can see Jerry's trophy below in the Picnic section, as well as more on World's performances.
At least three double golds for SBW riders at the 2018 Masters Track Nationals, T-Town, including both sprints and 500m for Jim Kloss and Kurt Sato, plus an impressive double gold for Sarah Munoz in both the Scratch and Points race. Leo Longo gold in team pursuit - check out the 'stache. Elise Traylor was also on the podium several times, capped by a rain-delayed Team Pursuit Gold! Pics on the right. Looking good for Worlds this fall!
UCI has issued a Masters Track Worlds bulletin showing the number of riders/teams by age group in all 2018 events.
The 2018 SBW Awards Picnic "Fiesta" was a blast, thanks in large part to Matt/Jon Gorski, and Julie Lansing. World champions, Baxter awards, Mariachi band, raffle, sangria, taco bar, VeloFix van. Here's the Walkabout video. Stills coming - or go over to both SBW Facebook pages.
SCNCA has announced that the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix (link above) will host the 2018 Elite Woman's and Men's State Championships. We have chosen 22 July as the date for the 2018 MBGP. Application for the city is in preparation. Positive feedback from all concerned for the 2017 MBGP, so planning to use the same direction for the race.
Jill Brunkhardt-Taylor, dear friend of MBGP/SBW and powerhouse liaison of key sponsor Chevron (pro races, Kid's Zone, and much more) is helping her new husband Robert in a fight with cancer. If you want to help, check out this link. Thanks
SBW 2017 Pizza Party was great. Grimaldi's makes tasty thin-crust pizza and salads. Weather was perfect. And there were lots of raffle prizes, beverages, and, most of all, Outstanding Rider recognitions. More details soon. Here is the customary "walkabout" video to give you a feel, if you weren't there.
Records fell and medals were plentiful at the 2017 UCI Masters Track World Championships in the Velo Sports Center, Carson. Kurt Sato won the M60+ 500m ITT in a world record time of 34.936 sec. Leo Longo and 3 reigning members of last year's world champ team won gold in the 3000m TTT in a new record 3:41.738. The 10/9 morning session saw 5 women's world best times broken, including 2 events where all three places were taken by USA riders. Sarah Munoz got silver in her 2k ITT and Bronze in the 3k TTT.
On 10/11 Jim Kloss won the M75+ 500m breaking his own WR in 39.005 sec. Leo Menistrina was in contention, but caught, and had to pass, his opponent to get a time by going high on the track in the turn. Kurt Sato won his first Match Sprint WC in three rides against James Joseph of Guyana. Joseph set a new WR of 11.420 in the qualifying round. Victor Copeland's previous record had lasted 15 years. Also, Joseph was Kurt's competitor in Kurt's very first national championship at T-Town in 2007. On 10/13, Jim Kloss won the WC in the match sprint, beating Leo Minestrina. Leo broke Jim's 200m WR in the qual round. Leo also broke Jim Kloss' WR in the 2k quals. Sadly, Jim was crashed out of the points race - possible shoulder injury and dns the 2k.
In the last session of the week, Gerry Agnew won the world championship in the M70+ 2k ITT - shown here on the winner's podium proudly saluting flag and country.
Previous Masters World Best Performances can be found here for men and women - near the bottom of the page.
Former SBW member Sarah Hammer announced her retirement from cycling competition and joined Performance United to coach and share her world championship expertise! More HERE.
Rick and Sally Lilleberg barely arrived in Texas and he has already won the state RR championship! Results posted here. Not surprised - having raced with him over several years, he has shown the most incredible combination of both RR/TT and sprinting talent in one pair of legs I've seen on the masters circuit. Podium pic at right via William Aligue.
Former member Jan Palchikoff absolutely crushed the UCI women's hour "Best Performance" for her age group by about 3km. The official UCI Masters Track "Best Performance" times are here for men and women.
SBW/LAVRA track TT 2017 series finale saw a heartwarming sight - three generations of Agnews doing a team sprint! Granddaughter Addison, daughter Sarah (Munoz), and proud papa Gerry. You should have seen Addison attack after the exchange from Mom on the last lap! A natural.
Gerry Agnew awards the 2017 Agnew/Brusavich Scholarship to Haley Winn, with proud parents Chuck and Diana looking on. This award is made every year to a number of deserving high school seniors. Make an application for next year if you are in the club, or know a worthy student in the cycling community. The law firm, an SBW sponsor (more at CalBikeLaw), has given hundreds of these scholarships to students over the years, giving them a jump start for a better college education.
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!
