Ted Ernst Time Trial Series starts this Sunday, 2/24/19, at Hughes Park, 8 and 9am as usual. Unleash your winter legs!
LAVRA has published a training/race schedule for 2019. They've also published the LAVRA/SBW TT series schedule.
We are pleased to announce the completion of the "merger" of South Bay Wheelmen into South Bay Wheelmen Foundation, the 501c3 entity that is a charitable non-profit, supporting national and international amateur cycling competition. Based on experience in the 5 years that we've managed the Foundation, our interpretation of the IRS rules (Publication 526) is that club member dues are eligible charitable contributions.

2 Then click this link for a pre-addressed (sbwfmembers at gmail dot com) email form, attach, and send. You can also use this link to send questions/get help.
3 Pay the $55 (individual) or $75 (family) dues you selected on the application. If you prefer to send a check, the address is on the application. Or use the Paypal payment portal below. "Donate" includes dues per above. Select the amount on the site and submit.
Racers renew their USAC Licenses. If you are new, or renewing manually, make sure you enter South Bay Wheelmen Foundation as the Club. Some members are seeing both the SBW Club and the Foundation (ID #14577) as choices. You can also manually add/change this later by logging in to USACycling.org, selecting My Account / Profile / Licenses, and then finding the Foundation on the pull-down menu for Club names. The Team name can be left blank, or put in South Bay Wheelmen. Check your profile to make sure you are registered as a SBW Foundation member. We will be cross-checking during the membership renewal process and let you know if there are any issues.
USAC Road racing has started - the CBR series. Good results. Happy to have John McKee and Leo Pettus at it again - joined here with new member/trackie Sarah Mattes. There were at least 6 other SBW finishers, including Jose Chuc, Carlos Martinez-Fernandez, Rooney Escobar, Kevin Escobar, Marco Rodriguez, and Chuck Winn, several in multiple races. More results HERE (select year 2019).
Great SBW ride at Xmas from Malaga Cove with "Cyclista FilAm" William Aligue, visiting from the east. More team photos available on FaceBook SBW group Page.
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
Ted Ernst Time Trial Series finale was a big success with 20 competitors vying for Race Director John McNulty's Cash and good series finishes. More pics/info on our closed FB Group Page. Members on FB can request to join the closed group.
Masters Track 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 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.
Gerry Agnew and Bruce Brusavich award the 2018 Agnew/Brusavich Scholarship to Jon Gorski, with proud Dad and SBW President Matt 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.
Two double and one triple gold for SBW riders at the 2018 Masters Track Nationals, T-Town, including both sprints and 500m for Jim Kloss and Kurt Sato, plus an triple gold for Sarah Munoz in the cratch, points race, and team pursuit. Leo Longo gold in team pursuit - check out the 'stache. Elise Traylor and Sarah were also on the podium several other times, capped by their rain-delayed Team Pursuit Gold
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!
