Yosvany Falcon claimed his second win of the week, winning the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix after a quick trip back from his victory in the Greenbush road race in Wisconsin.
Falcon out-sprinted his breakaway companions Bernard Sulzberger (Fly V Australia) and Diego Yepez.
The 49th Annual Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix was the 14th of 24 events on the 2010 National Racing Calendar. It took place over the classic 1.4-mile course, which includes a hill with a grade of 7% in the first turn and a 300-meter sprint to the finish.
A 10-man breakaway pulled out a 90-second gap and, despite a strong chase by the United Healthcare p/b Maxxis team, still held a large gap at the line.
Falcon's win did not affect the overall series lead of Luis Amaran (Jamis Sutter Home-Colavita). Winner of the Joe Martin Stage Race and Marion GP, Amaran holds a large lead over Rory Sutherland (Unitedhealthcare) and Scott Zwizanski (Kelly Benefit Strategies).
