Big Bear was the site of the last SoCal State Series race for the 2007 season. The series incorporated seven races and took the riders best five finishes to crown the winner.


 
After a long season which begun back in April, many riders were ready for the off-season to roll in. Team Big Bear marked out an exciting course that had a little of everything. For the Expert/Pro race which was 21 miles in length, the riders traveled over an equal balance of fire roads, singletrack, long climbs and tough descents. The Beginner and Sport racers course was 16 miles in length. The day was beautiful with sunny skies in the mid 70’s. The Platinum Performance Team was out in force defending their Coed Team Title. In the end we did it! Platinum walked away with it’s third Coed California Team title in three years. Nine Platinum riders won the individual California State Championship title.
 
Consistent riding at Big Bear lead to first place finishes for team captain Todd Booth (Exp 35-39), Terry Dahl (Exp 65+), Ian Mcfarlane (Spt 18-), Byron Beck (Beg 50-54) and Melanie Davis (Beg Wmn 14-). Platinum riders who did not make it on MBA’s Top 10 List include:  Bobby Langin Jr (2nd Exp 19-24), Harrison Davis (2nd Beg 15-), Reny Takeda (2nd 10-), John Biron (4th Spt 45-49), Bob Nisbet (6ht Exp 40-44), Ron Takeda (6th Exp 45-49), Nick Davis (7th Exp 45-49), Jason Hannon (7th Exp 40-44), Andy Osburn (8th Exp 40-44),  John Reveles (8th Spt 40-44) and Steve Bertrand (13th Spt 50-54).
