Alijah Beatty (Northstar Development) and Chris Anderson (Revolution Cycles/Podiumwear) were victorius in the elite races at the Southside Sprints on Sunday, July 24th.

The 6th edition of Southside Sprints brought racing back to 48th and Chicago in South Minneapolis, and was once again billed as the Minnesota State Criterium Championship. Fair weather, and a break in the heat wave treated racers and fans alike to a fun day of bike racing.

The elite women's race was agressive from the start, which made for some exciting racing! Grand Performance, Orion Racing, Kingfield, Fix Studio, 2 Wheeler Dealers, and Hollywood Cycles were all well represented in the field. The winning move turned out to be a late breakaway of 3 riders including Beatty, Angie Johnson (Grand Performance), and Stacey Kalemkiarian (Fix Studio).

With the field closing in on the trio in the closing laps, it was Beatty who got away to finish solo, with Johnson (2nd) and Kalemkiarian (3rd) just holding off the hard charging field led by Melissa Dahlman (Grand Performance) and Corey Coogan Cisek (Fix Studio). As Beatty is from Iowa, the Elite Women's MN State Criterium Championship was awarded to Johnson. Well done ladies!

The elite men's race started with an ill fated solo breakaway by Jordan Cullen, who returned to racing after a couple years away. Shortly after Cullen was reeled in, came the race winning move, a breakaway of 5 riders including Anderson, Cullen, Nick Kimpton (Flanders), and Donkey Label Racing teammates Lev Kalemkiarian and Tristin Bentzler. With the gap at 30 seconds, the duo of Jameson Ribbens (Revolution) and Adam Froemming (Freewheel) attempted to bridge the gap.

Unfortunately, a crash in the field on the backside of the course caused officials to neutralize the race. No one was seriously hurt, and they successfully restarted the race with the pre-crash time gaps. In the closing laps, it looked like the 5-man break would lap the field, but the break hesitated, choosing race just each other, rather than take their chances in a field sprint.

Bentzler jumped away with 1 lap to go, while the others played cat and mouse. Bentzler was caught in the final corner, with Cullen leading out the sprint. Anderson had enough to get past in the closing meters and claim the State Championship. Cullen 2nd, Kimpton 3rd, Kalemkiarian 4th, and Bentzler 5th. The chasing duo split up with Ribbens staying away for 6th, and Fromming caught by the field in the last lap, led home by Sam Bramel (Donkey Label Racing).

Congratulations to all the MN State Criterium Champions, and hats off to the promoters on the great success of the Big Waters Classic!
