USA Cycling’s US CUP continues with Round 2 at Fontana City

LIVE video stream coverage announced

Fontana City, CA – March 19, 2015:  For the second straight weekend, Southern California will host a selection of the world’s best cross country racers as the USA Cycling’s US CUP Series presented by Cannondale continues with Round 2 in Fontana City.

Round 1 winners Raphael Gagne (Rocky Mountain Bicycles) and Emily Batty (Trek Factory Racing) will look to defend their lead in the overall rankings, as the Fontana race will be a UCI HC category race, offering higher UCI points, series points and a richer prize purse than the first round in Bonelli Park.

“I’m really happy with how I went against such a strong international field in Bonelli and am proud to wear the leader’s jersey going into Fontana,” said Gagne. “I placed two spots better in Fontana than Bonelli last year, so I hope to be up front again. The long climb suits me, and the descent on the back side is real fun so it’s going to be another good weekend.”

Women’s revelation Larissa Connors (Ridebiker Alliance), 4th in Bonelli, was characteristically enthusiastic about heading into Fontana City. “I’m so excited to race again this weekend. Last week was an incredible rush, to race up front with the best girls in the world. I’m ready to go out there and give it another go. The response to my ride at Bonelli was just incredible. Now I just have to put my head down, do the work, turn the legs and try to get up there again!”

 

Free video coverage schedule announced

Ridebiker Alliance is proud to announce that video coverage of USA Cyclin’s US CUP presented by Cannondale Round 2 will be aired live, with a one-hour condensed highlight reel featuring advertising and special offers from our sponsors to air beginning Wednesday afternoon. Both the live feed and highlight reel will be viewable at www.uscup.net, www.uscup.tv and also at a dedicated page under USA Cycling’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mor60tvPq9s.

 

The elite men’s contenders

Men’s leader and Round 1 winner Raphael Gagne stayed in Southern California to prepare for his defence in Fontana City. He will face a determined field of top talent trying to knock him out of the lead, including fellow Canadian Max Plaxton, who fought hard in Bonelli Park.

Cannondale Factory Racing is one team that showed itself at the front of the Bonelli Park race and will want to continue that trend at Fontana. Both Marco Aurelio Fontana and Manuel Fumic took their turns in the race lead, but it was young Anton Cooper who would finish on the podium (third) with a very consistent ride.

Continuing down the Bonelli results, the next three riders are aboard Trek Bicycles and all will be fighting to move up in the rankings on Saturday. James Reid from Trek RECM was a bit of a surprise to some, but will be out to prove he belongs at the front of the race in Fontana. Reid finished in the top twenty in Fontana in 2014 and his fourth at Bonelli on Saturday is reason to believe he on fine form. Sergio Mantecon was second in Bonelli and sixth in Fontana last year and currently lies in fifth while teammate Adam Morka lies in sixth place.

Scott 3 Rox Racing’s Canadian duo of Derek Zandstra and Geoff Kabush are next in the overall, while some big names such as Fumic, Todd Wells (Specialized Factory Racing), Russell Finsterwald (SRAM/TLD Race Team), Keegan Swenson and Stephen Ettinger (both Sho-Air / Cannondale) will look to improve upon their Bonelli Park results.

 

The elite women’s contenders

The Luna Pro Team led by Catharine Pendrel, Georgia Gould and Katerina Nash will be out to reclaim the top podium spot after they were unable to shake a determined and in-form Emily Batty at Bonelli Park. Larissa Connors is out to prove that Saturday’s fourth place was no fluke while top contenders Erin Huck (Scott 3 Rox), Evelyn Dong (Sho-Air / Cannondale), Maghalie Rochette (Luna Pro Team) and Rose Grant (Stans NoTubes Elite Women) will be determined to displace Batty, the Luna duo of Pendrel and Gould, Connors and Chloe Woodruff (Stans NoTubes/Niner) from their podium spots.

 

UCI Junior Races

New for the 2015 US CUP Series is that the Fontana City Round will also include a UCI Junior race category for both men and women. The Junior XCO race will be held at 8:30 Saturday morning, with valuable UCI points and payout on offer.

CHICO STAGE RACE: WINNING THE YOUNG RIDERS JERSEY!

 

DE2P0706-X3

The KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo Cycling Team made the trek to Northern California for the Chico Stage Race this past weekend. This was the teams first time doing the event, and several riders first time above Fresno! So to say the least, we were excited for the challenge ahead. A unique aspect of this stage race is that it covered 3 days but had 4 events. For stage one, the racers got the chance to race on the Thunderhill Raceway car race track where they clocked speeds over 42 MPH. The course was 3 miles with 15 turns, many of which were banked for the fastest Ferrari.

The team had a squad of 7 for the event with Chris Barton, David Santos, Shawn Wayland, Shawn Daurelio, Ulises Castillo, Brian McCulloch and 2nd place on the day – Fabrizio Von Nacher.

Fabrizio gives his view of how the race unfolded:

“The first stage in Chico Stage Race was a fast and fun circuit race. This course was super fast and had a couple short power hills. The team plan for this first day was to keep the team at the front and save energy. The team did an awesome job. We were always together at the front and the guys were always in any dangerous moves.

The race went by for two hours and it came down to bunch sprint. The guys did an incredible job keeping me in the front, off the wind and saving energy for the sprint. In the last lap Dave Santos, Brian McCulloch, Shawn Daurelio and Shawn Wayland set me up perfect behind the Optum train. Chris Barton and Ulises Castillo were my last two guys and they did an extraordinary job to leave me in the perfect position with 500 meters. I managed to get second on the stage and the best young rider jersey!

Thanks to my teammates, staff and all the all sponsors for all the support and the trust they give me and the whole program!”

The sprint was so close at the finish, we really thought that Fabi had won.
