San Dimas Stage Race Preview, Teams Announced


The dates for the San Dimas Stage Race (SDSR) are almost here. The SDSR is a premier race which attracts top flight riders and teams in all categories and provides great entertainment for spectators of all ages.  Now in its 16th year, the race is hosted by Southern California Velo (SC Velo), presented by GMR.bike, supported by terrific sponsors, and staffed by dedicated volunteers led by Race Director Al Wiscovitch.

The race consists of three exciting stages in three great venues:

  • A challenging Time Trial up Glendora Mountain Road (GMR) on Friday, March 28th, sponsored by Chaffey Auto Body.
  • A grueling classic Road Race around Bonelli Park on Saturday, March 29th, sponsored by San Dimas Community Hospital.
  • A fast and furious Criterium around downtown San Dimas on Sunday, March 30th, sponsored by Incycle bike stores and Cannondale bikes.

All three stages offer great opportunities for riders to excel and for cycling fans to see exciting pro and amateur racing up close. If you can only attend one day, come on Sunday and enjoy our Expo along with the race. There are no admission fees for watching the races.

On-Line Registration is complete with more than 800 riders signed up. Many world class professional teams and riders are on the roster.  Talented riders from around the country and beyond have signed up in large numbers in all categories from Pro to Juniors.  All of the fields are strong and the riders are anxious to kick off their racing seasons with exceptional performances.

Late & In-Person Registration: Several categories did not sell out, so there is still an opportunity to compete in the race.  A $15 fee will be applied to all late registrations. Email late registration may be done Monday March 23rd through Thursday March 26th  by  contacting  Cheyenne Wiscovitch at [email protected].   In person late registration will be accepted on a first come-first served basis on Thursday, March 26th, between 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at the San Dimas Incycle cycle shop located at 501 W. Arrow Hwy.  In person late registration can also be done on Friday, March 27th, in the registration area of stage 1, the Glendora Mountain Road Time Trial, up to 1 hour before the first start time of the category being signed up for.  Information about open categories and start times will be posted as it becomes available at https://sdsr.bike
