Los Angeles : Santa Barbara to Santa Monica Alleycat
Orange 20 has a great write up on Hern's "Santa Barbara to Santa Monica" race this past weekend. I remember participating last year, and it took me close to 5 hours for 92 miles on a track bike by my lonesomes. That sucked. "On June 16th Hern organized a brutal race from Santa Barabara to Santa Monica. Over 30 racers showed up to race 80 miles down the Southern California coast. Jon Budinoff took 1st place finishing the race in under 3 hours and 20 minutes. Thomas Wood finished in 2nd place, Robby from Engine N.11 in 3rd. Bud Abile finished 5th but he won the Fixed gear category. Awesome race! Hope everyone who participated had lots of fun."
