San Dimas Stage Race 2009

Friday March 20, 2009. A 3.8 mile stretch of Glendora Mountain Road was the opening time trial to the three day 2009 San Dimas Stage Race. The transformation of a quiet wandering uphill terrain into a bustling carnival of 800 riders, their support personnel, equipment, attending race officials, and spectators brought out a few intrepid spectators. It was a day of sweat, determination and hopes as cyclists were launched one by one to meet their destiny.

Today was a day where one group of road users, cyclists needed sole use of the road. There were heated words between cyclists and skate boarders when center line rules were not followed that nearly caused two cyclists to crash.

Bill took over 700 photos today. GMR slacked off with only a couple hundred. Approximately 70 pictures have been posted. Photos on the web have been reduced. We took pictures from 9:30 am to 11:00 am and 13:30 to 16:39. If you like to make inquiries please contact: Bill. Include your start time and color of jersey.
