TEAM TROPHY STANDINGS (after two events)

The team rivalries are on now! After two nights of racing, we can really see our race teams rallying the troops and going for the Summer Race Series Team Trophy — the only overall series award.

On the second night of racing, Predator Cycling showed up full force at the Orange 20 Track Cup last Wednesday. They took a demanding lead in the team standings by dominating the Sprint Tournament (the most valuable event in points for the Team Trophy).

The Herbalife La Grange riders — who were leading after the first event — have fallen behind but they are still hanging on in 2nd place. If they want to take the lead again, they are going to have to get more riders out to race (points are awarded for participation as well as for performance).

Chain Gang remains in 3rd place. They’ve been representing with a lot of riders so far in the series — now they just have to ride faster and get those points!

Moth Attack, the one-woman wrecking crew has slipped into 4th place. Megan Dean is still riding on those points she earned at the H&S Time Trials Night (female racers get double points).

Rounding out the top 5 is Encino Velo thanks to Daniel Kosykh’s triple-win hat trick in the A-Class Omnium. If Daniel can keep showing up with performances like that, they have a chance at getting to the top of the standings before the end of the series.

See the rest of the top 10 teams below. There are still three more race nights left in the Summer Race Series and a lot can happen during that time. CLICK HERE to see how Team Trophy points are awarded.

RECAP - ORANGE 20 TRACK CUP

What a night! The Orange 20 Track Cup was a total success. Lots of racers came out and the Encino Velodrome bleachers were full of spectators having a good time. While we still have a couple little kinks to iron out in the program, everything went smoothly and each race was just as exciting as the next.

The prizes were awesome thanks to Orange 20 Bikes and our other sponsors who are very generous to support the Summer Race Series. The top three racers in each field took away some very bling prizes — but they certainly earned it for some great racing.

The C-Class Omnium was won by Angel Dubon [Coco’s Variety] who has been taking the Intro To Track Racing class at Encino Velodrome all year. He is becoming a very sneaky racer, always waiting for the last minute to make his move. Watch out for this kid! Robert Pacheco [The Juice] and Matt Locascio [Chain Gang] came in 2nd and 3rd respectively. C-Class podium winners went home with medals and some Orange 20 tees.

Fabian Vasquez [Sho Air] outpowered the competition in the B-Class Omnium. Fabian is kinda new to the velodrome but he’s no stranger to riding fast and that’s just what he did to earn this victory. Hernan Montenegro [The Juice] came in 2nd place and Aaron Palmer [Chain Gang] took 3rd. They all went home with medals and Izumi chains.

It was a clean sweep in the A-Class omnium for Daniel Kosykh [Encino Velo] who won all three events on his new slime-green Serenity bike. Chris Reed [PAA Remax] took 2nd place on the podium and Tim McGee [Predator Cycling] came in 3rd. They all left with medals some fancy cogs from Euro-Asia Imports.

But that’s not all that Tim McGee took home. He also won a set of brand spanking new Phil Wood hubs for winning 1st place in the Sprint Tournament. Richard Kim [Herbalife La Grange] lost to Tim in the final round but he still came out of it with a nice Blackburn pump and some Phil Wood products. Finally, an Adidas sweatshirt went to CJ Williams [Predator Cycling] who took 3rd in the Sprint Tournament.

Congratulations to the winners and to all the racers who rode their arses off. Thanks to the spectators who came to watch and cheer everyone on. And a huge special thanks goes out to Jack, Kenny, Geobbe, Hern, Omar, Aram and Ty who all made this night possible. Now we’re super excited for the next night in the Summer Race Series
