Corona, CA: Upscale all-inclusive development finally sees homes

Years ago a developer and architect envisioned plans to connect an upscale retail development in South Corona through lakes and bamboo walkways to housing, creating an all-inclusive mini city that few residents would need to leave for necessities.

Corona, CA: Thomas Sticks It Out in Ohio

Podium Finish for FAR Husqvarna's Jason Thomas at Powerline Park GNCC

It was no surprise to see Jason Thomas and his TXC250 take the early lead in the XC2 class on his FAR Husqvarna at the Power Line Park GNCC in Ohio. But it was unexpected when he became firmly stuck in a mud hole on the first lap and spent a full two minutes trying to free his bike from the mud.

Thomas put his head down and charged to eighth place by the end of the first lap, and was steadily gaining ground. The FAR team's pit strategy allowed Thomas to only pit once throughout the race, and helped him push all the way back up to a podium position. Thomas had closed to within one minute of second place, but ran out of time and had to settle for third on the day.
