Logo_SRS Cyclists Complete Two-Day Competition in Knoxville at Southeast Regional Series; Overall Classification Leaders Taking Shape for September Championship.

The weather dawned with cloudy skies but the rain held off as hundreds of cyclists from around the Southeast descended on Knoxville, Tenn. to compete in the fourth weekend of races for the 2014 Southeast Regional Series presented by Stan’s NoTubes (SRS). More than 350 registered cyclists competed in the 11 categorized races over two days, August 9 and 10. The series features a unique Saturday downtown criterium paired with a Sunday road race and is the only elite and amateur road series of events that offers point competitions spanning multiple states in one region.

On Saturday, the SRS Knoxville Criterium was held in downtown Knoxville. The criterium featured races for all levels of cycling, from Juniors and Masters to men and women professional riders. The Men’s Pro 1/ 2 category was won by Winston David (Greenville, S.C.) of the Lupus Racing Team. In the Women’s Pro 1/ 2/3 category, Amy Phillips (Chattanooga, Tenn.) of Pepper Palace Pro Cycling captured the victory.

Sunday featured nine events on an 11-mile loop around House Mountain State Natural Area near Corryton for the Knoxville Road Race. The Men’s Pro 1/ 2 race was won by Daniel Patten (Great Britain) of Cycletherapy/VoMax. The Women’s Pro 1/2/3 race was won by Christy Keely (Holland, Mich.) of Asheville Bicycle Racing Club.

The SRS weekend proved to be a success for local cycling teams Knoxvelo Harper-Auto and Micro Metals/Bike Zoo. Ron Wilson (Rockford, Tenn.) of Micro Metals/Bike Zoo placed first in the Men’s Masters 50+ category at Saturday’s Knoxville Criterium and second at Sunday’s Knoxville Road Race. Sanford Webster (Lenoir, N.C.) of Harper-Auto took home the victory in the road race in the Men’s Masters 35+ 4/5 category.

The Southeast Regional Series presented by Stan’s NoTubes offers over $50,000 in cash and prizes this summer, across five weekends of racing in five states. The next stop is the conclusion of the series with the championships in Greenville, S.C. September 13-14.
