Velo News carried this story about Southern California college teams competing here in the Antelope Valley:
n the Western Collegiate Cycling Conference’s only split race weekend, Southern California teams did battle in the windswept Antelope Valley at UCLA’s road race and time trials. . .
Abandoning their cosmopolitan Los Angeles neighborhood, the UCLA team chose the folksy town of Pearblossom for their road race, subjecting riders to multiple rounds of a 12.5-mile course that featured 1,500 feet of climbing per lap.
