The CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team has wrapped up yet another successful weekend of racing in Southern California.
The first win of the weekend came from climber extraordinaire, Stefano Barberi. He made the trek to Lone Pine, CA for the Mt. Whitney Stage Race where he handedly won stage 1. This stage only traveled a mere 29 miles, however during that span of pavement it climbed a whopping 7,100 feet. Not mention, this event is at a much higher altitude than Stefano is used to training at! Day 2 brought another 29 mile event which climbed 6,00ft. Stefano again showed his climbing strength as he won this stage and overall victory.
At home, four riders congregated in Dominguez Hills for SoCalCup race #8, CBR Razor’s Edge Criterium. Devan Dunn, Lee Muse, David Santos and Brian McCulloch were primed and ready for the event despite the high temperatures and increasing speeds of the wind.
Brian McCulloch won the event, with teammate David Santos placing 2nd and Devan Dunn sprinting to narrowly miss 3rd place and finish 4th. Our friends at Cycling Illustrated had Brian do a race report on their website. It is a great read and you can check it out HERE.
