USA Cycling Pro Mountain Bike Ultra-Endurance Tour

Round 2 of the USA Cycling Pro Mountain Bike Ultra-Endurance Tour (Pro UET) was held under ideal but dry and dusty conditions at the high-altitude venue of Big Bear Lake on the first weekend of June. This time around it was ageless wonder (51!) and once Big Bear native Tinker Juarez winning the 50-Miler with an incredible time of 3:51:11. The Pro Women’s class went to another long-distance veteran, Pua Mata, with a 4:14:01. And if you want to talk hard-core, how about Allan Laframboise, who captured the Men’s Singlespeed class at 4:31:20.

Brendon Davids now leads the Pro Men’s standings with two runner-up finishes, followed by Ryan Clark and first-round winner Eric Bostrom. Mata is in front of the Pro Women’s class with two wins, with Tonya Bray and Jessica Noyola trailing. Mark Sheetz, also with two second-place finishes, tops the Men’s Singlespeed points standings.

The next and final round of the series takes place on a new course near Big Bear – incorporating a considerable portion of the much-revered Santa Ana River Trail (the dirt version) on June 17.
