MPCC up next in California

The McLane Pacific Cycling Classic (MPCC), the first non-stage race of the year on the National Racing Calendar, will be taking place again in Merced, California, on March 4, 2006. At last year's event, Gord Fraser of Health Net-Maxxis team won the Downtown Grand Prix for the fourth year in a row, edging out J.J. Haedo of Colavita- Sutter Home. Haedo then wrestled the top prize from Fraser in the Foothills Road Race the following day.

For the 13th edition of the MPCC, Fraser and Haedo will meet again, with Haedo wearing the new Toyota-United jersey, the same as Fraser's former team-mate and current US Pro Road Champion Chris Wherry.
