Congrats again to Jason Vorell and Team Encore Credit

Here is a recent press release sent out by Team Encore credit. I coach 3 of the Encore Credit riders, and have consulted with a few others:

Palos Verdes, CA
The 2005 SoCal Cyclocross Series made its 8th stop in the beautiful rolling hills of Palos Verdes this weekend. On the cool and foggy morning, Encore Cycling put on quite a show. Lisa Vorell started it off in the Woman's B with a solid 2nd place finish to secure her 2nd place overall in the Urban Cross Series and put her in the lead for SoCal Cyclocross Series with 6 races to go. In the Men's B it was a 1 - 2 - 3 for Encore Cycling!! Jason Vorell took the win, clinching the top spot for in Urban Cyclocross Series and extending his lead in the SoCal Cyclocross Championship Series. Mike Tettleton, in his first Cross race ever, took and impressive second! Starting in the back of the 22 man field, Mike fought his way up to the front group and then set such a fast pace that only his team mates could hold his wheel. Jason Perkins placed third, taking 2nd in the Urban Cyclocross Series and moving into 2nd in the SoCal Cyclocross Series. Daniel Preston also made his first debut into cross this weekend in the Men's B class. The afternoon concluded with a super competitive Men's C Field. Cameron Dickinson continues to make significant improvements and placed 7th out of 23 on the day.
Encore Cycling, now trailing by only 10 points, stays in 7th place in the team competition.

Recent Results

Jason Vorell was my featured rider last 'cross season, and he is tearing it up again this year. Jaon won the SoCal Cross sup for the "B" group last year by going ou there and getting consistently top results. He is taking a slightly more laidback approach this year, and isn't really worried about the overall cup, but that hasn't stopped him from getting a 3rd at the Urban Cyclocross race on 10/30 or a 1st on 10/23 at celo Pacific. Jason actually said he feels the fittest he has been in years. I think it is partially because I was able to help him prepare a little better this year based on the feedback he gave me in 2004. Jason't got plenty more races to do this season, a few more performances like the last few weeks and they'll probably make him cat up!
