2010 12 Hours of Temecula Finals

"12 Hours Of Temecula"
Southern California's Premier Mountain Bike Experience
2010 12 Hours Of Temecula series closes with a bang!

2010 Has been an amazing year for SoCal Mountain Biking. The 12 Hour final is the culmination of hard work and dedication from racers and the biking industry!

Saturday Nov 13th started with sunny skies and temps hovering around 50 degrees in the early morning. 6:00 am rolled around quickly and racers were pouring in to Vail Lake Resort from all over the US. We even had a few teams from overseas joining us for the challenge of the day! Onsite registration was buzzing and pits were being setup all over the venue. The mandatory 8 am racer meeting came and went with out a hitch and racers lined up for the 9am start! The 10 second count was heard over the PA system and soon the race was under way. Right off the bat Tinker Juarez ( The legend ) was blazing the notorious DAMN Climb! Tinker won the King of the Mountain prize and went on to claim the fastest lap of the day ( 40:53 ). Today was Tinker's day and he was feeling good! The rest of the racers were rolling up the DAMN Climb and blasting the rollercoaster ridgelines with the thoughts of champions jerseys on their minds. The Pro men had Ant White and Doug Andrews chasing Tinker all day long trying to capture the $400 reward for beating Tinker in laps on the final day. In the End Tinker rocked 13 laps with Ant White close behind and Doug Andrews a minute later rounding out the top 3. Tinker crushed this years pro category to take the overall championship and the coveted SoCal Jersey! In the elite ladies category Timari Pruis led Joy Martin to take the win and the overall victory for 2010. There were so many great battles taking place throughout the day as teams were within minutes of each other going in to the last few hours. This was by far the most exciting year we've had at the 12 Hour series.
