The racing season opened today with the Toyota-United Professional Cycling Team lining up with a large contingent of Southern California riders and strong representation from three other American Professional Teams ˆ Kelly Benefits-Medifast, Jelly Belly, and Rock Racing.

The Toyota-United team, fresh off a Solvang, CA training camp, hit the front on the first of four laps as Caleb Manion set the tone for what was to come. With the chase on, Jonny Clarke slipped into the group and when contact was made the Toyota-United boys had two riders off the front. As subsequent groups chased and tried to bridge across to the front group there was always a Toyota-United teammate along.

With windy, cold, and moderately high altitude (4,000‚) the pace and conditions began to split the riders into ever smaller groups. With one circuit to go in the 90 mile race the Toyota-United team had five riders in the final 30 man selection and the hammer went down. Soloing in for the race win was Heath Blackgrove, followed by team mate Ben Day a few seconds later. Taking a three up sprint for third was another Toyota-United rider, Jonny Clarke for a sweep of the podium. Another few seconds later the race animator, Caleb Manion, soloed home for sixth and a minute later Dominique Rollin rolled in for 10th place.

Blackgrove said, „We started strong due to Caleb‚s efforts right off the line and we controlled the race for the final 15-20km, and it was just a matter of which of us from Toyota-United was going to finish first.‰
