Colorado Springs, Colo. (July 29, 2012) — The 2012 USA Cycling Masters Track National Championships wrapped up Sunday, awarding Stars-and-Stripes jerseys in the team pursuit, team sprint and Madison, as well as the best all-around team for the six-day competition.

Team Pursuits

Leading off the day were the 35+ men’s four-kilometer team pursuit. With a time of 4:35.823 and winning by nearly three seconds, the Curse Breakers team of Joshua Frick (Bethesda, Md.), Jason Meidhof (Bethesda, Md.), Daniel Casper (Northfield, Minn.) and David Bozak (Duncansville, Penn.) rode to gold.

In the men’s 45+ four-kilometer race, Sofa King Fast Racing lived up to their team name, stopping the clock slightly more than nine seconds ahead of Team Colorado. Earning the Stars-and-Stripes were Kenneth Williams (Kenmore, Wash.), Curtis Tolson (Louisville, Ky.), Dean Peterson (Indianapolis, Ind.) and Chris Carlson (Plano, Texas).

Chamb Black Coaching earned the men’s 55+ three-kilometer title. The foursome of Robert Black (Alachua, Fla.), James Host (Plainfield, Ill.), Paul Schuler (Fort Collins, Colo.) and Carl Westergren (Jacksonville, Fla.) posted a time of 3:36.7.

Rounding out the men’s team pursuits was the 65+ three-kilometer competition, won by the Cranksters team of Gary Bridges (San Carlos, Calif.), Jack Kelso (Pleasanton, Calif.), Jerry Shafer (Seattle, Wash.) and Michael Williams (Metairie, La.).

Two individual pursuit champions from earlier in the week, Neva Day (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) and Annette Williams (Kenmore, Wash.), were joined by Jane Evely (Carnation, Wash.) to form the women’s 35+ three-kilometer team winning team. Their squad of Slalom Consulting beat runner-up Naked Pro Design by more than seven seconds.

It was Team SageMarilyn Trout (Colorado Springs, Colo.), Charlotte Miller (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Peg Labiuk (Orange, Conn.) – coming out on top in the women’s 45+ three-kilometer team pursuit over the Nesting Dolls.

Due to a restructuring of the age groups for the event, all team pursuit times set new national records.

Team Sprints

It was a tight race for the top three spots in the men’s 35+ team sprint. Pulling out the win was the George Garner Cyclery team of Kevin Perez (South Barrington, Ill.), Jason Garner (Glenview, Ill.) and Jeffrey Whiteman (Chicago, Ill.) with a time of 1:05.123. Coming in a close second was Atomic USA at 1:05.560, just edging EW Connection’s time of 1:05.686.

Brinton Technik, made up of Joel Bertet (Los Angeles, Calif.), David Brinton (North Hollywood, Calif.) and David Klipper (Portland, Ore.), rode to victory in the men’s 45+ team sprint. Team Specialized was runner-up.

Bill Ziegler (Oceanside, Calif.), Steven Sawelson (Rolling Hills Estates, Calif.) and Kurt Sato (San Pedro, Calif.) bonded together to form the Out on Bail crew, which posted a 1:08.502 to escape with the men’s 55+ gold, narrowly edging the 96er’s by two-tenths of a second.

With multiple titles between them, the trio of Jerry Woodruff (Seal Beach, Calif.), Victor Copeland (Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.) and Lawrence Bosch (Fort Collins, Colo.) paced WBC to the win in the men’s 65+ team sprint ahead of J Squared R.

In the women’s 35+ team sprint, the N.E. Kim’s? team of Kimberly Edwards (Clinton, Conn.) and Kimberly Nuffer (Denver, Colo.) earned the win ahead of the Slalom Consulting squad of Jane Evely and Annette Williams, who had earlier been part of the women’s 35+ team pursuit winning team.

Phillips and Johnson won the women's 45+ team sprint with a time of 50.184.

Gea Johnson (Scottsdale, Ariz.) and Christine Phillips (Chandler, Ariz.) teamed up for AZ ABC and won their third title each. Runner-up in the women’s 45+ team sprint was the Hammer Nutrition team of Renee Schroeder (Nederland, Colo.) and Tara Unverzagt (Torrance, Calif.)


The Madison capped off the week’s racing. In the men’s 35+ race, the Breakers of the Curse team of Daniel Casper and Jason Meidhof, who earlier in the day were part of the men’s 35+ team pursuit champs, won all four sprint laps in the 60-lap contest to take the win. Following in second was the Stages/Ronin two-some of David McIntosh (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Patrick Warner (Boulder, Colo.).

An exciting men’s 45+ race came down to the final sprint for the line, with Chris Carlson (Plano, TX/TRH) and Curtis Tolson (Louisville, KY/TRH) earning the win over the Guinness Cycling team of David Brinton (North Hollywood, Calif.) and David Klipper (Portland, Ore.). With only two points separating the teams heading into the final lap, Guinness Cycling had the lead coming around the final corner, but the TRH rider hit the acceleration and crossed the line first to secure the five points and the national championship.
