Race Report & Results: Rosena Ranch Circuit Race

The first race of the Rosena Ranch Circuit Race series was a who’s who of regional teams as several teams had full squads lined up to take on the tough circuit. The course was a two mile circuit that was a mile out and a mile back for 25 laps, which came out to 50 miles of which I’m glad I was spectating.

Race Report: Valley of the Sun Stage Race – By Innokenty Zavyalov, SoCalCycling.com Team

My SoCalCycling.com Team teammate Erick Sobey and I got to Arizona early for the Valley of the Sun Stage Race. That’s right. Sun! And lots of it.

Race Report: Barrio Logan Grand Prix – By Steven Davis, SoCalCycling.com Team
