2008 Mark Reynolds San Luis Rey Road Cycling Classic
May 4th, 2008

Brent Prenzlow, ready to race the Pro/1/2. His set up: Bailey full carbon, Dura-ace 10 speed, Zipp 404s. 16.2 lbs.

Rock Racing's Brock Curry receives "The Plan" from David Clinger, who would go on to win the race.

Ready to race. Mike Onkels, Brent Prenzlow, and Adam Livingston catch up before the start. The three were teammates in the Gatorade Pro/1/2 cycling team in 1995/96.

The Men's Pro/1/2 Start. 81 miles and 7000' of climbing to go!

A 7-rider break was established on the first lap led here by Kahala-LaGrange's Adrian Gerrits. Also pictured are Ben Brooks (Team Type 1), Phillip Gaimon (Fiordifrutta), and Chris Walker (Time Factory Team).

The Men's Pro/1/2 main field climbs up to make the right-hander onto old 395 a.k.a. the "feed zone climb"

The Pro breakaway continues to be strong and gain time.

Feed Zone Frenzy! The Cat 3 field comes into the often chaotic feed zone.

The Men's Pro breakaway continues to drive hard and will not be brought back this time.

The Women's Pro/1/2 field climbs feed zone hill. In the center is 16-year old Coryn Rivera (Kahala LaGrange), who would go on to finish a fantastic 2nd! Just ahead of Coryn, is second place finisher Melodie Metzger (PROMAN).

The WINNING Move! David Clinger (Rock Racing) flies away from the rest of the break on the final climb of feedzone hill. Clinger's attack was matched by Ben Brooks (Team Type I) and Adam Livingston (5 Star Waste Vegetable Oil), but Clinger was too strong and would take the 3-up sprint at the finish anyway. Congrats to all 3!
