Roger Millikan Memorial Grand Prix – Brea
A year later and the same results.  Pinnaclife racing takes first after winning in 2010.  Gary, Steve G., Steve M., Bruce, Jay, John, Kenny, Ira, Paul, Mark and Dave P. line up for this very fast race.  The team takes shots at the front from the start. Kenny whips the pace up on the first lap.  Mark starts the action with a 2 man break that last several laps.  They are brought back and Gary goes on the attack.  Steve G. makes the next attack and get s a break going.  That break is brought back and Dave goes and takes a couple guys with him.  They are brought back in a couple laps.  The team sets up the sprint with Paul going to the front with 3 laps to go.  Kenny follows and gets the pace up, Bruce takes a one lap pull setting the stage for the last 2 laps.  Gary, John, Kenny and Bruce lead the train into the last lap.  Jay hammers the top of the coarse making everyone hurt.  Dave takes the last pull up the hill as Steve powers around and holds off everyone for 200 meters taking the victory!  Great team work.  I heard a lot of racers talking about this fast finish. it was brutal.

Wayne Rosenkrantz set up a great finish and rockets in for 9th in a very fast 55+ race.  Nice work Dog!

This is getting exciting…..

Mothballs Criterium

The team gets its first rain race of 2011 in Santa Barbara for the Mothballs Criterium. Gary Wall, Steve G, and Mark Palmer take control of the race early. The rain pours down as Gary attacks over and over. All the breaks are covered and Mark takes his shot at the front. The last lap is fast with Gary leading the pace, Steve G. comes out of the last corner first and powers in for second. Great result on a wet coarse!

Red Trolley Criterium

The team is out in force with Gary, Steve G. Steve M, Mark, Kenny and Dave P showing up on the line. Gary goes to work early making several attacks stick. They are brought back and Steve takes a shot at the group. His attack sticks with Gary and Mark in the break. The break gets too big and is brought back. Steve G. gets in another break with Dave and Gary later but it’s brought back. It sets up to be a field sprint and Steve powers up the last hill into 6th place. Nice finish in this very tough race.
