The 2013 WCCC Series came to a dramatic end with USC riders winning both the Cache Creek Road Race and Mondavi Criterium. John Tomlinson won the grueling, crosswind-heavy road race by attacking the elite lead group of 6 with 15 miles to go and crossed the line solo, in the leader’s yellow jersey. Colin Don won the Mondavi Criterium in a similarly dominating fashion: a solo attack with 3 laps remaining, holding off the field. Tomlinson won the field sprint, earning third place.
The victory in the road race sealed Tomlinson’s domination of the WCCC Individual Omnium, winning the series by over 600 points. Following are USC’s victories this season:
- 1st place, Cal Poly Road Race: John Tomlinson
- 1st place, UCLA Road Race: John Tomlinson
- 1st place, Stanford Road Race: Brendan Larkin
- 1st place, Fresno State Road Race: John Tomlinson
