This marks Chevron’s 26th consecutive year as the title sponsor of the Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix. With Chevron’s support and that of the South Bay Wheelmen Foundation, the Grand Prix has grown to attract over 700 contestants, including the world’s top cyclists, from six continents, and over 7,500 spectators.
The Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix features nine races catering to all levels of cyclists, as well as a wide range of community racers. New this year will be a 50 minute Junior race for 15-18 year olds at 10:15 a.m., with a $1,500 purse paying 10 deep. The fan favorite kids’ races for children between the ages of two and 12, will be held at 12 noon, followed by the Women’s Pro 1-3 race at 1 p.m., which will be started by local Assemblyman David Hadley. The last race of the day will be the Men’s Pro 1-2 race at 2 p.m.
Also new this year, in hopes of bringing more families to the race, will be the Chevron Kids’ Zone for children two through 12 years. This area will be featured at the Start/Finish line and include free face painting, color hair spray, temporary tattoos, hot dogs, cookies, a photo booth, balloon animals and prizes.
In addition to the nine races and the Chevron Kids’ Zone, the event will include food vendors, local exhibits, and antique road and cruiser bike shows.
