San Dimas Stage Race Registration Now OpenRegistration for the 19th annual San Dimas Stage Race (SDSR), scheduled for March 23rd, 24th, and 25th, 2018, is now open at BikeReg.com. World class professional, talented amateur, and Junior cyclists from around the world are signing up to compete in this highly regarded race which is hosted by the SC Velo Cycling Club. Three exciting stages of racing are scheduled as well as Kids Races on the last day. 800+ professional and amateur cyclists are expected to compete for cash prizes and medals.

This year’s SDSR is again part of USA Cycling’s American Road Calendar (ARC). In keeping with ARC requirements, the podium cash awards for the Men’s and Women’s Pro categories have been equalized. For our Junior racers, the SDSR will again serve as USA Cycling Juniors National ID race, and it will also be part of the Junior DEVO race series.

The SDSR offers great opportunities for participation by cyclists of all levels, as well as wonderful viewing for cycling fans. There are no fees for spectators, just pick a spot along the race route and be prepared to see some exciting racing. For the photographically inclined, the photo-ops will be unparalleled, with lots of up-close action, so bring your cameras. For the safety of our riders and spectators, no drones will be allowed.

Stage 1 consists of individual time trials on a 4.25 mile course that winds its way up Glendora Mountain Road. This stage, sponsored by GMR.bike, is an individual all out effort by the riders to get the best time up the steepest parts of Glendora Mountain Road. With the size of the field, it will be a long day of racing.

Stage 2 will be a Road Race around Bonelli Park sponsored by San Dimas Community Hospital. The course, slightly changed from last year, is a rolling and twisting approximately 7 mile circuit which includes short climbs. The riders will make from 4 to 12 loops around the course depending upon category. A special viewing area for the race is being planned inside the Park, details will be posted on the SDSR web site and Facebook page as soon as they are finalized.

Stage 3 is a Criterium around the streets of Old Town San Dimas sponsored by Incycle bike stores and Cannondale bikes. The racers will ride quick loops around a tight, 1.2 mile circuit with 6 sharp corners, for times varying from 40 to 85 minutes depending upon their category. For spectators, this will be an up-close and fast race, with lots of good viewing spots around the tree lined course.
