San Dimas Stage Race 2011, Stage 3 Criterium...

I was looking forward to some warm sun today, but instead we got a little drizzle in the early morning hours, and as a result the course was wet for the Junior 17/18 and 15/16 race: 



After that first race though, the pavement was dry, and the sky somewhat sunny. The Men's Category V race was next, with Clinton Hostetler (yellow) and Ryan White (green) attempting to hold on to their race leaders jerseys for one final day:




Coming into the final stage Jeff Block of Ritte Racing was wearing yellow, and Steve Boniface of Monster Media / SC Velo was wearing Green. Both kept themselves in the action to the very end.



The Men's 45+/55+ race kicked-off with a neutralized lap in remembrance of Kevin Unck, and led by his teammates of the Coates / Back Abbey team. Where else but in a combined field could you see two Yellow Jersey wearers racing side by side?






As usual, the Men's 35+ race was set to be one of the fastest of the day. Kevin Klein in the Yellow Jersey, and Adam Livingston in Green, raced at the front all day to defend their top placings. Also up there for the entire race was Chris DiMarchi in the Stars and Stripes. At the end of the day it was DiMarchi blasting across the line with room to spare:






Not to be outdone, the Men's III race was also nice and fast, with Matthew Walther unleashing a monster sprint at the end to win going away:




Always one of the popular events of the day, the kids races saw Chris DiMarchi providing an honor escort to the victor of the older group of future champions.


As usual, click reverse order for all slideshows after you make the jump to view them in correct sequence.

  3. Hi Michael,

    Your SDSR race reports are good. I would like to put links them on the SC Velo SDSR Recap page ( http://scvelo.com/news/item/77-2011-sdsr-recap ). Is that OK with you?
