San Dimas, California (March 24, 2014) – The dates for the San Dimas Stage Race (SDSR) are almost here. The SDSR is a premier race which attracts top flight riders and teams in all categories and provides great entertainment for spectators of all ages. Now in its 15th year, the race is hosted by Southern California Velo (SC Velo), presented by MRI Endurance, supported by terrific sponsors, and staffed by dedicated volunteers led by Race Director Al Wiscovitch.
The race consists of three exciting stages in three great venues:
* A challenging Time Trial up Glendora Mountain Road (GMR) on Friday, March 28th,
sponsored by Chaffey Auto Body.
* A grueling classic Road Race around Bonelli Park on Saturday, March 29th,
sponsored by San Dimas Community Hospital.
* A fast and furious Criterium around downtown San Dimas on Sunday, March 30th,
sponsored by Incycle bike stores and Cannondale bikes.
All three stages offer great opportunities for riders to excel and for cycling fans to see exciting pro and amateur racing up close. If you can only attend one day, come on Sunday and enjoy our Expo along with the race. There are no admission fees for watching the races.
On-Line Registration is complete with almost 800 riders signed up. Many world class professional teams and riders are on the roster. Talented riders from around the country and beyond have signed up in large numbers in all categories from Pro to Juniors. All of the fields are strong and the riders are anxious to kick off their racing seasons with exceptional performances.
