Pasadena’s “world famous” Rose Bowl Ride hosted a swathe of the fastest riders from Southern California. The bi-weekly race-pace group ride saw its final Tuesday ride of the year feature a few prizes offered up by Justin and Cory Williams‘ Legion of LA team. The pair are former multi-time national criterium champions, their Legion of LA team dominated the USA Crits series as well as the 2019 Southern California Crit scene.
Pros from UCI continental teams like Aevolo and Wildlife Generation Cycling joined the Rose Bowl regulars for a chance to win the cash and beer up for grabs. Over 50 riders set off to conquer eight laps of the 3-mile-long loop that has been featured in the Tour of California multiple times. Constant breakaways and attacks kept the pace high throughout the night until sunset. In a year that many opted to “take off” the friendly competition was welcomed by the disciplined. On the final lap, in the dark, Justin Williams edged out the competition with a perfect sprint aided by a well-timed leadout and expert bike throw.
The Rose Bowl Ride was part one of a three ride series of SoCal group rides with prizes up for grabs.
