Santa Rosa’s Standish Wins Spring Cycling Series

April 29, 2006 — Santa Rosa’s Ben Standish (Dewars Racing Team) took home double honors on Thursday night in the final round of the Spring Cycling Series at Infineon Raceway.

Standish outlasted the pack over the 40-lap criterium race, which took place on a course created in the Turn 11 NASCAR hairpin, winning both the final race and the overall Spring Series championship. Kentfield’s Joshua Litwack (Unattached) finished second in Thursday’s event and the championship race. Standish won two of the four contested events in the Spring Series en route to the title.

“This course is a nice addition to the rest of the circuit,” said Standish. “We are really lucky to be able to race at the track. I just wish more people knew about it.”

In other race action on Thursday, Santa Rosa’s Brian Staby (Eastside Cycles) won the B Race, while Fairfax’s Nicola Cranmer (Proman/Paradigm) and Petaluma’s Ethan Weiss (Team Swift) won the Women’s and Junior’s Divisions, respectively.

Other overall champions of the Spring Cycling Series include Peter Nicholson (Petaluma, Eastside Cycles) in the B Group, Kristin Drumm (Novato, Proman) in the Women’s Division and Ethan Weiss (Petaluma, Team Swift) in the Junior’s Division. Champions were awarded $300 (Group A), $225 (Group B, Women’s), and $100 (Junior’s).

This was the final event of Infineon Raceway’s four-event Spring Cycling Series. Cycling will return to Infineon Raceway in August with the Summer Cycling series, which will be held Aug. 10, 17, 31, and Sept. 7 at Infineon Raceway.
