The 17th Annual Tour de Murrieta presented by Wine Ranch Grill and Cellars kicked off the 2022 Omnium with the Downtown Grand Prix pb by Davidson Bike Law. The Tour de Murrieta is a well-run two-day community cycling event and festival that is a favorite for riders and fans to attend each year.
In addition to the Grand Prix, the Kid’s Race presented by Pacific Western Bank of Murrieta gave kids 8 and under a chance to have fun on their bikes, practice their skills, and experience bike racing up close.
The racing was fast throughout the day and was held under overcast skies which made for cooler temperatures, which was perfect for racing.
The Pro men’s race saw Cory Williams (L39ion of LA) take the win, with Miami Blazers teammates Clever Martinez and Dante Young finished 2nd and 3rd respectively.
In the Women’s race, Colleen Gullick (Team Skyline) took the win ahead of Cassidy Hickey (LUX-CTS p/b Specialized) in 2nd followed by Chloe Patrick (Serious Cycling) in 3rd to round out the podium.
The Tour de Murrieta continues on Sunday with the Circuit Race presented by Pulido Cleaning where the racers will be battling it out for a shot at the Omnium win.
