Race Report: Orange County Cycling Classic – by Ronnie Toth, SoCalCycling.com Team

This weekend at the Orange County Cycling Classic Omnium the SoCalCycling.com Team came out in top form. On Day 1, after a couple hard laps on the 2.7 mile course and the usual chaos of counterattack after counterattack a break was soon established.

Race Report : Adrenaline SoCal Circuit Race, By Lucas Binder, SoCalCycling.com Team

Half way through the season and some 3,200 miles later, I have been very happy with the saddle and my pessimistic expectations have been proven wrong. Weight I am fortunate to have the carbon rails and carbon shell […]

From Riding Solo to Riding with the SoCalCycling.com Team, by Ronnie Toth

It has been a while since I have been able to partake in true team tactics in a bike race. This past Sunday at the Ladera Ranch Grand Prix, I was able to join the SoCalCycling.com Elite Team in my debut weekend as a Cat 1. After pulling an all-nighter getting my new Cannondale SuperSix EVO dialed in with dedicated Race Director Frank Sarate we were ready to take it to the street team and make some magic happen on […]
