Brad Huff (Jelly Belly) breaks down the Dana Point Grand Prix 2012

 

On the day of the race, as my Jelly Belly teammate, Nic Hamilton, and I rode around PCH figuring out how we were not going to fall asleep on the beach that looked so inviting, we realized we were riding on a completely closed section of PCH. Really? What American city can shut down a road like PCH? That’s what makes the Dana Point Grand Prix special to me. That, and I won there last year. Anyway, after two cokes, one snickers, and two bags of Sport Beans, Nic and I felt like we had finally overcome the jet lag we were hanging on to after our return from the Tour of Korea earlier in the week. We were ready to race. [Read more...]

Category 2 Dana Point Grand Prix Race Report By Ryan Schneider

The Dana Point Grand Prix is one of the biggest races of the year for any Southern Californian cyclist. There are only a few races during the year that the Cat 2 racers get to race against each other without the Pros and the Cat 1s in the mix, and Dana Point is one of them. Before the season started I wrote down my goals for the year and one of them was to win the Cat 2 race at Dana Point. The course is challenging but incredibly fun. It consists of six turns with two slight uphill sections.

 

For some reason, in every category this seems to be one of the fastest races of the year.  Last year’s Cat 2 race was the most difficult race I have ever competed in. I have never had a race with a higher average heart rate, and that includes all of the Pro/1/2 races I have done. Last year I finished a disappointing eighth place. [Read more...]

Brad Huff (Jelly Belly) Repeats in Dana Point Grand Prix by edging out Justin Williams of (Cashcall Mortgage) by half a wheel.

“It’s impressive,” Huff said about his win. “UnitedHealthcare took the front with about seven to go and I didn’t know if it was going to happen because it was pretty hectic behind them. My team just did a hell of an effort to get me back up into position and I was able to finish it off.”
