While most of SoCal was getting hammered by a gnarly set of storms, bringing both rain and snow, it was time for race #2 in the Southridge Winter series for Team BVB at Fontana. Saturday provided a brief reprieve in the weather with the sun shining through in time for the race. The team yet again had a strong presence in the men’s, women’s and vet pro categories, dominating in each. In the Pro men, brothers Julien and Jean-Louis Bourdevaire took both 2nd and 4th place. In the Pro women’s, it was an in-house battle between our three pro female teammates, resulting in the win from Christine ‘Johny’ Ringo, with Alyssa Ringo in 2nd and Amanda Felder taking the 3rd spot on the podium. Stuart Gonzalez took the top of the Vet Pro podium, closely followed by Derek Hermon in 3rd. Race #3 in the Series is this weekend at Southridge Park in Fontana. The question is, will anyone show up who can challenge the performance of team Bear Valley Bikes so far? Or will the team continue in it’s domination of the Southridge Winter Series?
